The Stikine River is one of the last great wilderness areas remaining in North America. You will be immersed in rugged and spectacular beauty throughout the day. Don’t settle for the average river tour, come with us and experience the Stikine like a “local”! A fourth generation Alaskan, with a lifetime of experience on the Stikine, will guide you off the beaten path to hidden secrets of this vast untouched wilderness area.
WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT ALASKA CHARTERS AND ADVENTURES
Small Groups: While we have the capability to accommodate larger groups, we feel that wildlife viewing & photography along with real wilderness surroundings are best experienced by very small groups. Being part of a large tour group doesn’t lend itself to the up close & personal experience we strive to provide our guest. You can expect us to recognise your individual interests, limitations & expectations.
Training and Experience: Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality professional guides and captains. We can offer you Wrangell’s only state certified guides, certified naturalist, & Alaska Cultural host. At Alaska Charters and Adventures, we will provide you high quality guides and captains. No matter which tour you book, you will follow a trained, mature and professional guide.
Trip Length: Alaska Charters and Adventures is unique in that we prefer to offer you FULL DAY excursions customized for your interests and abilities. This means you can linger for that perfect photo and enjoy plenty of opportunities to get out and take in the scenery. Why rush? Take time to optimize wildlife viewing and lightning. More time is more opportunity to experience Alaska’s remarkable nature.

YOUR ADVENTURE AWAITS!
Coffee is always brewing as we gather at our office before departure. We make sure you have everything you need for the day. Because the Stikine extends over a vast and diverse area, our day will begin with a chat about your specific interests. Whether it’s photography, glaciers or wildlife, we will tailor your adventure specifically to you! Before you know it we will be off on our way to experience one of Alaska’s truly wild areas. Our guides are certified naturalists and Alaska state certified guides, not to mention history buffs!
RUN THE RIVER
Enjoy the ride on the nimble jetboat “Wildside”. We will take you where big tour boats won’t! From the towering coastal rainforest, steep snow capped peaks and glaciers, there is something for everyone of any age to enjoy. With our specialized vessel and highly experienced guide, you will see beautiful salmon streams, have the opportunity to stop and photograph wildlife and soak in natural hot springs. This tour is the perfect way to explore the less traveled “backroads”.
LET US SHARE OUR FAVORITE PLACE
We have generations of experience here on the Stikine with an unprecedented safety record. There’s no place we’d rather be! For us there’s nothing more fun than sharing its unmatched beauty with you. Relax with our long leisurely tour. We stop frequently to get out of the boat so you can experience the river like a local. Gather ice at the glacier for your evening drinks, pick some vegetables from our remote family homestead or feel the mist from powerful waterfalls.
