What a great way to see the Lynn Canal! You will see all sorts of marine life, eagles, maybe a pod of orcas or humpback whales, sea lions, seals and sea birds. Only bad weather will make this trip less than great!

I cannot say enough about the young man who spoke during our ferry ride to Haines!! He was very knowledgable and a gifted speaker made the ferry trip fascinating.

This ferry ride was beautifully picturesque with waterfalls and hillsides tumbling into the fiord. The ferry was stable, fast and had big windows for viewing. Wonderful way to get to our tour of the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve.

Fast ferry between Skagway and Haines. 8 miles up and down the picturesque fjord. Refreshments on board. We used it to get to the bald eagle reserve, others used it to get to the Haines beer festival.
