A Scenic Jet Boat Adventure in Haines Alaska
Join us enjoy the Scenic Jet Boat tours onboard our comfortable boats & experienced captains that will show you this hidden jewel of Southeast Alaska for as low as $139 per person! We operate our tours on both Haines ans Skagway. The trips are the same once in Haines, but the Skagway trip includes a round trip ferry to get to Haines and participate in the tour, thus it is longer and the price includes the cost of the ferry. Rates: From Haines: 4 Hours • Adult: $139 per person • Child: $99 per person We have a 2 person minimum for our tours but can sometimes take single guests or put them on hold until others join at that departure time. Type of Experiences: • Wildlife Viewing • Relaxing Adventure • Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve • Exceptional Service • Highest Standards What You Can Expect: Where the road ends, your adventure begins! Experience the true wilderness that Alaska is famous for on our narrated river tour in the heart of the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve which explores miles of tributaries of the stunning glacially carved, braided Chilkat River system. We will be onboard our boats that are specially designed and built specifically for traversing shallow water. The boats are powered by four stroke, Yamaha outboard motors. The four stroke motors are much more quiet than the two stroke’s and more eco-friendly and economical to operate. The term “jet boat” is common in Alaska and it is nothing like other jet boats that people are familiar with. These outboard motors have an impeller, instead of a propeller, all incased in aluminum and the water is pulled up through the intake, then shoots out the back, which propels the boat. This is the same concept as a jet ski. Wildlife Viewing Eagles and moose are often the highlights of the tour but wildlife abounds! Keep your eye out for other surprises and photo opportunities. Relaxing Adventure Scenic narrated tour via quiet outboard jet boats, exploring the calm waters of the Chilkat for wildlife and grand Alaskan vistas. Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve The only tour that takes you past where the road ends to the upper Chilkat River. Explore miles of untouched wilderness. Exceptional Service Highly trained captains and friendly, experienced staff see to your every need with customer service at the highest level. Highest Standards Excellently maintained vehicles and equipment. Private property on the river includes heated lunch pavilion and modern facilities.
