Explore Haines "On Your Own"

This tour is specifically designed for cruise guests who want to avoid the crowded streets of Skagway or who don't want to be on a structured tour but would rather be on their own to explore the beautiful town of Haines 


You will be greeted by one of our staff at your cruise ship dock in Skagway, they will then escort you to the Haines-Skagway fast ferry, your ferry ride will take approximately 45 minutes; depending on weather conditions, tides and vessel traffic in and out of the harbors. The Haines-Skagway Fast Ferry traverses the Taiya Inlet of the Lynn Canal, the longest and deepest fjord of North America. Three major waterfalls are viewable from the vessel: Long Falls, Twin Falls and Sawmill Falls. 

Once you arrive in Haines you will be greeted by your driver, who will give you a brief narrated tour of the City of Haines and the Fort Seward area, at that time the guide will show you the various pickup and drop off points throughout the quaint town of Haines. We will provide you with a discount booklet for various shops, carving, restaurants and taverns. You have the option to include/exclude the Alaska Bald Eagle Foundation & Raptor Center visit. We highly recommend it!
