2.5-Hour Taiya River Scenic Float from Skagway

2 hours (Approx.)
Mobile Ticket


After meeting your experienced guide, enjoy a beautiful 10-mile drive along the rugged coast of the fjord to the Dyea Valley, an old Gold Rush settlement, and starting point of the historic Chilkoot Trail, now returned to nature.  During the drive, you may spot bald eagles or seals feeding near the shoreline. You will stop to see the start of the Chilkoot Trail, where thousands journeyed in pursuit of gold during the turn of the century.

Once you arrive at the rafts, your professionally trained boatman will outfit you with a life jacket and rubber boats. As you float down the gentle Taiya River, your guide will point out any wildlife, talk about the local natural history, and tell stories of the area’s fascinating Gold Rush history while you enjoy the gorgeous river and mountain views. After the float, you’ll enjoy a riverside snack.

Dyea is a peaceful getaway from bustling Skagway and a perfect opportunity to feel like a part of the great Alaskan outdoors.
