Glacier Lake by Jetboat.
Possibility of seeing a variety of wildlife species.
View Shakes Lake and sparkling blue icebergs.
Immerse yourself in the pristine wilderness of the world's largest temperate rain forest. The Stikine River is one of the last truly wild rivers in North America, running directly through the nearly half-million acre Stikine LeConte Wilderness area. Famed American naturalist John Muir described it as 'a Yosemite 100 miles long'. The surrounding dense forest is home to a variety of wildlife species, some of which you may just catch a glance of, if you're lucky!
Experience the excitement of an exhilarating jet-boat ride on a custom, purpose-built, heated and covered vessel. You'll learn a bit of the area's gold rush history and see world-renowned Stikine River scenery and great photo opportunities.
Traverse the ever-changing river delta, feel the thrill of the crisp, fresh air run through your fingertips as you motor through side sloughs, and explore the banks of the ever-changing river. Seek out views of distant mountain peaks, spy on spawning salmon and listen to thundering waterfalls.
Your journey culminates at Shakes Lake, dotted with sparkling blue icebergs. Conditions permitting, you'll venture in farther for a view of Shakes Glacier and the ancient ice from which it was created.
Enjoy a delightful snack including smoked Alaska salmon on board the vessel as you are immersed in the experience of the wilderness up close as the peaceful river rolls by. Accompanied by wine and cheese, your snack brings a touch of class to your wilderness experience.
