About
Leave the crowds of Skagway behind and visit Chilkoot Lake State Park in Haines. Your tour begins with a high-speed catamaran ride along the steep-walled fjords which connect Skagway to Haines. Over a dozen unnamed waterfalls drop hundreds of feet from both sides of the boat. Upon arrival in Haines, you will meet your expert naturalist guide for a drive to Chilkoot Lake State Park. This park has it all: a turquoise lake surrounded by snowy mountain peaks, a salmon-filled river flowing into the sea, and important Tlingit cultural sights. Bald eagles, harbor seals, and brown bears are often seen here.

Worst excursion ever! Highlight was boat ride to Haines. Down hill from there. 4 hours on riding around Haines and stopping at pull offs (no facilities) and hanging around each parking lot for 45+ minutes. Enclosed are pics of the picnic lunch. I was not expecting gourmet food,
But for $219 pp, a restaurant quality sandwich would have been appreciated,
Instead of one that looks like the Inexperienced tour guide threw together in her kitchen. We saw one bear from far away.

I was happy to see that you saw a brown bear in the wild on your tour. To see a brown bear in the wild, even from a distance, should be considered a privilege and a highlight. Brown bear do not cohabitate well with humans, and have been largely eliminated from the lower 48 states. We always bring high-powered spotting scopes on our wildlife tours so that bears can be viewed safely from a distance. Our guides are experienced at finding bear, and also teaching our guests about bear and how they fit into the Chilkoot ecosystem. We never guarantee bear sightings. Our guides are seasoned and well trained. First and foremost, they are trained in bear safety. We stay close to the vehicle in the parking areas because our number one priority is safety. To venture far from the vehicle in bear country exposes our guests to unnecessary risks. We do not advertise this as a hiking tour. Even elderly guests and those with poor mobility can enjoy this tour. It is an educational tour and a scenic drive. Each stop is carefully chosen to provide information about various ecosystems where the wildlife lives. On our four-hour tour, our guests experience a fjord, an estuary, a riverside stop, and a scenic lake. Contrary to your comments, there are facilities at the majority of our stops. Our lunch consists of a turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread, a crisp apple and a fresh-baked cookie. Mountain Market, a popular local Haines eatery, prepares our lunches each morning. We even offer gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian lunch options with advance notice. I am sorry you were not satisfied with your experience with us. Rainbow Glacier Adventures has been in business for over twenty years and we have received hundreds of five-star reviews on Tripadvisor. I sincerely hope my comments help you to understand this tour and our company better.

We came to Haines, Alaska on a ferry from our cruise in Skagway. We saw lots of eagles. Aly was a very personable young lady. We really enjoyed our tour. It was one of the highlights of our trip!

What a great experience for my husband and me while visiting Skagway.
We called from our hotel in Skagway to book a trip over to Haines and talked to Kathy who arranged our trip and pick up at hotel and catamaran/ferry over to Haines. Once there we met Bryne, who gave us a wonderful tour seeing the area wildlife. Bears and cubs feeding in the river, eagles and seals. Plus some history of Haines itself. We highly recommend anyone visiting Skagway to take time to go over to Haines and book with Rainbow Adventures.
