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 Stikine LeConte Wilderness Area, which spans nearly a half million acres. Famed American naturalist John Muir described it as ‘Yosemite, 100 miles long'. The surrounding dense forest is home to a variety of wildlife species that you may spot if you're lucky!

Experience the excitement of a jetboat ride on a custom, purpose-built, heated, and covered vessel. Learn about the area's gold rush history and see world-renowned Stikine River scenery, with great photo opportunities.

Traverse the river delta and feel the crisp 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 can venture in farther for a view of Shakes Glacier and the ancient ice from which it was created.

Enjoy a delightful snack on board the vessel, including smoked Alaska salmon, as the peaceful river rolls by and you enjoy an immersive experience in the wilderness. Accompanied by wine and cheese, your snack brings a touch of class to your wilderness experience.
