Skagway excursion help


Recommended Posts

When my wife and I are in Skagway for our upcoming cruise, the excursion we're taking is the Eagle Preserve Float & Scenic Cruise. It's a 6-hour excursion. Normally we don't do such long excursions, but this is one that I've wanted to do for a long time.


Our main concern is that we'll be out for such a long time and the lack of facilities to use. Has anyone here taken this excursion and can you give me some good info on it? :) I'd definitely appreciate it!

We took it on our last trip to Alaska (in 2006) we are going again (to Alaska) on the 17th. We won't be doing this excursion. But to answer your question, not all 6 hours is spent on the water. There is travel time to and from and time spent getting setup before you shove off in the raft. There are NO places to stop for a nature break (no pun intended) along the river, so if you can't take 3 to 4 hours in between breaks, you may want to reconsider this tour.
