Combine sightseeing and rafting on this relaxing excursion that is perfect for all ages.

Scenic Rafting Float Trip on Taiya River in Skagway, Alaska

Setting out from the downtown area on your family-friendly Scenic Skagway Float excursion, enjoy a 10-mile drive along the coast to the beautiful Dyea Valley, home to an old gold rush settlement, which has now returned to nature. On the drive to the float tour, you may spot seals and eagles, and your driver will share some information on the area's history and nature. See the start of the famous Chilkoot Trail where thousands journeyed in the pursuit of gold.

Upon arrival at the put-in location, you will get your flotation vest and your rubber boots before boarding the rubber raft with your captain/guide. Along with your group of at most 11 guests, you will sit back and let your guide do the paddling. On this Skagway cruise excursion, your guide will point out wildlife and native plants, and tell stories of the area's fascinating history as you float down the gentle Taiya River. Float time is approximately 40 to 45 minutes on the river, depending on the current. After the rafting, enjoy a riverside snack.

Time permitting, you will also stop at the Skagway scenic overlook for a panoramic view of the town after the float tour.

Please Note: Rubber boots are provided on this tour as there will be a few inches of wading in water required to board the raft.
