    If your whole purpose for coming to Alaska is riding an ATV in circles, than this tour is for you. The hour long boat ride out has beautiful scenery, but it is the exact same scenery that you will see from your cruise ship for free, coming in or going out. The ATV adventure

    Thanks for coming out on the ATV Adventure. We are sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy it as much as you expected. It sounds like nature was against us that day. It’s always a disappointment to not get a chance to see any Alaskan wildlife out and about on your boat ride over. We oftentimes like to stop and point out whales, sea lions, eagles, or mountain goats, and stop for photo ops whenever we can. When it comes to the ATV ride, believe it or not, most of the time those trails are quite muddy which can make it tons of fun! We have had a record-breaking summer with higher temperatures and very little rainfall and in turn it has been quite dry. We do appreciate your feedback as we really strive to make everyone’s experience in Alaska amazing and memorable.

    This tour was not at all what I expected. First the boat ride to glacier point was incredible. The captain stopped at a few waterfalls and allowed us to see whales on the hour boat trip out to the point. But from there the tour was frustrating. The "adventure" was no adventure

    We appreciate the feedback! Thanks for coming out and letting us show you around where we live! Safety is a top priority for us so while we'd love to let those who can handle it, cruise around as desired, we do have to keep the whole group at the same pace. We have riders of all experience levels and ages who take this excursion, so we keep that in mind. Many of our guests are not experienced riders at all. The goal of this excursion for us, is more to experience the Alaskan wilderness and take in the beautiful scenery than to have a super technical or high-speed course. Sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy it!

    We took a boat to an area to ATV. The boat ride was about an hour each way and the crew did a decent job with pointing things out and telling stories. The ATVs were a blast. Each one holds 4 people but my husband and I had one to ourselves and my kids had another. My 19 year

    We signed up for this excursion on our cruise ship, after reading the awesome description of it. I have highly adventurous young adult kids so I thought it would be perfect. We are from the east coast and have done some ATV riding here. It's fun. What the description did not say

    We're sad to hear you didn't love the excursion! The minimum age to drive is in fact 18, and we do make it a point to make ensure all of the cruiselines/ships still have the correct information so things don't get miscommunicated. The same goes for the boat trip over, which is 75 minutes each way. A lot of times we get to see eagles, sea lions, and sometimes even a whale! We can't get them to commit to a certain time or place though, (they aren't on payroll) so it is a bummer that you weren't so lucky. Hopefully you got a chance to see some of the wildlife on other ventures on your cruise. Lastly, we do offer full rain gear to protect from the mud, as the trail is full of it! Guest always have to option not to wear it, but we do recommend you do.

    The boat ride was cool, saw eagles, seals and beautiful waterfalls. The ATV’s are good, the view of the glacier is beautiful. NOW the truth is if your an experienced ATV rider and done a lot of trail riding, you will be disappointed since you go around a trail twice. Kind of

    Hi there! We're glad you got to see some of the wildlife we've got up here, pretty neat stuff! We also tend to agree about the glacier, the view never gets old. As far as the trail ride, we do have riders of all experience levels and ages who take this excursion so we need to keep that in mind. Safety is a top priority for us so while we'd love to let those who can handle it, cruise around as desired, we do have to keep the whole group at the same pace.
