Water Tours in Alaska

There are myriad options when it comes to Alaska water tours, with excursions suitable for everyone, from the most active to visitors with limited mobility. Experience the thrills and spills of white water rafting or savor a more sedate river float. Try kayaking in a remote bay to get up close to glaciers, or take a sightseeing trip to spot whales. It’s up to you, but we’re sure you’ll find your perfect trip among our tried-and-tested selection.

Consistently one of our highest rated tours, the Bering Sea Crab Fisherman’s Tour is ideal if you want to explore the life of fishermen in a fun and sociable environment. Accompany Alaskan fishermen through the Inside Passage, watching the fast-paced hauling in of the day’s catch. Take the chance to spot the plentiful wildlife - and make sure you grab a photo with a gigantic King Crab!

Our Orcas Cove Sea Kayaking tour will provide you with a different water-based experience, one that will leave you with increased well-being and a deep sense of inner relaxation - although no guarantee your arms won’t ache! Explore Orcas Cove by sea kayak, taking a gentle paddle along the shoreline, learning about the fragile ecosystem and spotting a rich variety of wildlife, including seals, river otters, bald eagles and whales. 

If you’re traveling in a group and want the opportunity to decide when and where to stop, then the Private Emerald Lake Tour is a great option. With so many places to see between Skagway and your final destination of Carcross, your day will be packed with scenic waterfalls, snow-covered mountains, vast rainforests and, of course, Emerald Lake itself.
