Explore miles of tributaries on the stunning, glacially-carved Chilkat River system. A local professional guide/naturalist ensures your comfort every step of the way and provides entertaining, informative narration about living in Haines. This Haines shore excursion is ideal for nature lovers and adventurers.

When you arrive in Haines, be sure to enjoy the amazing scenery around you. From the mountains to the Chilkoot Intel, to the quaintness of Haines. This town is known as Alaska's Adventure Capital. Ask any local and they will agree!

Meet your dock representative at the end of the pier and embark on the journey to your amazing jet boat adventure! Enjoy a scenic drive to the Jet Boat facility where they have all the amenities for your comfort.

The adventure part of your tour is next. Your friendly local guide/naturalist and certified Captain will assist you for your jet boat journey through a small portion of the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve on a powerful, yet quiet and uncovered boat for the best views of wildlife, scenery, and amazing photo opportunities. Moose are often the highlight of the tour, along with bald eagles and their massive nests dotting the river banks. Your captain will stop the boat when water depths allow, so you can capture an Alaskan photo for the ages!

After the boat ride, you'll board the bus for the scenic drive back to Haines, during which a boxed lunch will be provided for your enjoyment.

Then, you'll stop at the American Bald Eagle Foundation, a must-visit while in Haines. Live Raptors are available for viewing plus a great display of all the wildlife that inhabits the Chilkat Valley. Don't forget the gift shop for that perfect souvenir to remember your trip to Haines.
