Alaska Jetboat & Riverboat Tours

Rivers are the historic way of traveling in the country, so take the time to explore the heart of Alaska through these watery passageways. Watch for eagles in the trees and wildlife along the shores while the powerful waters help carry you to your destination. Water travel is certainly an experience for all of the senses, and an experience that should not be missed. Best of all it is an affordable way to get deep into the wilderness without having to hike or take a plane. In addition, most boats are covered, so even if the weather does not cooperate, you stay happy and dry.

The Dis­cov­ery II and Dis­cov­ery III offer ful­ly nar­rat­ed three-and-a-half-hour tour. But all your time isn’t spent on the boat. You’ll make an unfor­get­table one-hour  ...more
