On this excursion, you will be led through historic Skagway, Alaska, where you learn about the town’s fascinating culture and past. Then, you will enjoy an entertaining puppet show about tales of the gold rush before trying your own hand at the art of gold panning. After finding your fortune, gather around the campfire and savor an authentic Alaskan salmon feast. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

Alaska is home to incredible nature and wildlife rarely seen anywhere else. On this bear and whale watching Port Adventure, you’ll see once-in-a-lifetime views of Alaska’s most iconic animals. Hop aboard a high-speed catamaran to one of Alaska’s humpback feeding grounds, where you’ll spot magnificent humpback whales, orcas, sea lions, seals and porpoises. Then, venture into the lush rainforest with flowing rivers, where you might catch views of brown bears, deer and eagles.

What’s more adventurous than whitewater rafting?
