Pass By: Ocean Raft Alaska, 295 Congress Way, Skagway, AK 99840

Join us on our adventure boat ride through the Lynn Canal where we hug the shoreline while exploring hidden coves, waterfalls, rocky beaches, wildlife and MORE!

On this fun-filled, two-hour adventure your captain will make multiple stops for photo opportunities and wildlife sightings. Occasionally, they will turn the engines off to give you the ability to take in the sights and sounds that make up our home here in the wilderness of Southeast Alaska.

This intimate thrill-ride is designed to get you edging between mountain and ocean in our custom-built ribs. Climb aboard a raft styled identically to the boats that the US Coast Guard and Navy Seals use for search and rescue. With it's deep hull, surrounded by inflatable tubes, our boats are designed to deliver a comfortable ride on any ocean condition.

​You will straddle our custom-made, shock-absorbing seats as we race by the steep granite walls of the only Fjord in North American.

Awesome time on the Zodiac! Do yourself a favour and do this when you are in Skagway. Our tour had Captain Jen (pilot) and Alyssa (naturalist), and both know what they are are doing. Fun from the start when suiting up in the very fashionable bright red "marshmallow suit", to

We chose this excursion during a cruise ship excursion to Skagway. Prior to going out in the boat, we were provided full flotation suits that provided safety and comfort. Fortunately, it was a very nice day so we really didn't need much protection from the weather. There were
