Default Skagway to Haines & Excursions


Looking for advice for our stop in Skagway (Volendam, June 7-14).

We're in Skagway from 7AM - 9PM and the best excursion looks like the Eagle Preserve Float out of Haines. What's the best way to get from Skagway to Haines?

We are also considering chartering a boat on our own at the dock in Skagway for the same type of trip. Any suggestions? Would we be better off doing a charter out of Haines?

Any other suggestions for things to do in Skagway (especially since we're in port for so long)?

In June there aren't going to be a lot of eagles there compared to fall. If a priority, you should be seeing most everywhere in Alaska, if you take the time to look.

Realize that if you charter a boat to Haines, you are sailing the Lynn Canal between Skagway and Haines, the same route as your cruise ship. Yes scenic, but if you are a first timer, and with a priority for Haines, taking the fast ferry may be a better option and included with some operators? Eco Orca is a good rafting outfit.
