“Interesting Riverboat Trip”
Review of Klondike Spirit

Klondike Spirit
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

We took this as part of our tour and it was very interesting and informative. Not sure of the cost since it was included but it was a nice hour or so trip to see and hear about the area.

Be careful walking to get on because a women in our tour trip over a board sticking up and hurt herself, they should really paint those areas a bright color to warn people.

There are snack and drinks onboard for purchase.

This was part of our tour package and glad we got to do it. Very comfortable paddle boat. Inside had plenty of seating both on top and below. There was a bar on board for drinks and coffee and hot chocolate. The weather was cool and a little misty, but it didn't hamper the trip. Our guide was great with a lot of knowledge about the river and the boat. Saw the shipwreck area for past paddleboats, a cave man dwelling where someone actually lives with his dog and beautiful scenery. Very well done and worth it.

This was a delightful boat trip with a good commentary, informing us of all the places along the route with some history thrown in too. Tea and coffee facilities are available free, but no food is available other than a few snacks. This is a very sturdy boat with plenty of opportunity to take photos.

This is a very entertaining trip. We had quite good weather so the views were good. It was interesting in that there were obviously a number of people on the boat who had it as part of an overall tour and they showed no interest in the boat trip itself.
The tour guide was good, but all her measurements and distance were given in imperial measure, not metric. We had a 10 year old grandchild with us and he has not got a clue about what a mile or a yard is. I have difficulty converting as well. I commented on this to the guide and she said most people are from the USA. She did agree that she should probably use both.
The views fro the boat are very good.

The Klondike Spirit was an enjoyable way to spend our afternoon on the Yukon River. The trip lasts around 1 ½ hours going up and down the river. I especially enjoyed viewing the shipwrecks that were piled up on shore. The Spirit had inside seating as well as outside seating for you to choose from. Hot drinks were available inside as well. The narrator did a good job explaining the history of the area and the Yukon River.
