    So glad I took this trip.

    Leaving the clouds and winds in Skagway, the ferry took us on a scenic ride to Haines were it was sunny and calm. Our bus stopped to let us watch a bald eagle trying to lift a heavy salmon out of a stream. Lake Chilkoot was calm and surrounded by lush forests and mountains so our kayaking adventure was pure joy. Our guide patiently taught us how to kayak and gave us a memorable tour.

    Our weather was not so great, but the two tour leaders were fantastic and the lake was still beautiful. We would highly recommend this tour.

    We had a great time on our kayak trip - it really couldn't have been better. As a first time kayaker I was a bit nervous about learning to kayak in such cold water, but our guides from Rainbow Glacier - Greg and Zephyr were really outstanding at teaching us what we needed to know and keeping us safe. I enjoyed meeting both of them and they provided excellent commentary on the wildlife and plants around the lake, as well as life in Alaska. I came back from the trip, not just having enjoyed the beauty of the scenery and it is a really lovely, peaceful place and great to be there with a small group but having learned that I really enjoy kayaking and will try it again! We were also provided with a good lunch of sandwiches on locally baked bread, fruit and cookies. For both my husband and myself, this was the best excursion of our cruise and if I was to sum up why - it would be respect. our guides had great respect for the environment and wildlife, and they demonstrated respect for the people they were teaching - I was a little afraid of feeling foolish for not knowing anything about kayaking - but the kindness and respectful attitude of both our guides allowed me to have a great day on the water. Another highlight was the fast ferry from Skagway to Haines and Adam, the ferry captain who provided a stellar narration for the 45 minute ride. He was more informative and entertaining than any other naturalist/ranger we heard during our cruise!
