The water appeared to be merky but the views going up the river were beautiful. Would recommend a boat ride if you have the time.

We chartered BreakAway Adventures to go on the river and it was fabulous. Went up to Telegraph Creek, BC. Such beauty to see with all the glaciers and mountains, petroglyphs and more all pointed out by our guide. Awesome!

Just an absolute wonder with all the changing waters and the views were fabulous. Great spots to see and can spent a lot of time just exploring the vastness of the river.

Traveled with tour outfit out of Wrangell. Captain of the Chutine Warrior skillfully maneuvered around sandbars. We saw the blue ice at Shakes Glacier, river house boats, and jagged mountains. Charles Baxter

We travelled up the Stikine River in a jet boat to the Shakes glacier. Beautiful scenery on the way with great commentary. Lots of waterfalls, icebergs, and the glacier to top it off.
