Beautiful lake, amazing scenery, and lovely and caring guides. Seamlessly organized, no delays. The narration was not only informative but also entertaining


This excursion was while on a cruise with Silversea and it is not as advertised . One canoe motor was broken and the curates had to paddle around a 3 mile lake, the guides are inexperienced college students looking for a job to hang out in the Yard, and the tour did not include Fort Seward as mentioned. The tour also has a lunch which consisted of a vegetable wrap across from the ship!! I opted for food onboard. BTW the lunch was at 4 PM the end of the canoe trip. Very laid back college kids and not well organized. The Chilkoot Lake is beautiful and well worth the trip!!
