We booked this excursion and were very impressed with the personalized service. The wildlife viewing was incredible. Everything from grizzly bears catching salmon to humpback whales sounding beside the boat. We would recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Skagway.

The crew were awesome! Captain Mitch found a whale, harbour seals and sea lions. The smoked salmon stew was delicious! I'm usually not very comfortable on the water, but this watercraft and the captain made the trip very enjoyable.
