2.5 Hour Taiya River Scenic Float from Skagway
Warren_E, Jul 2019
Don't waste your money. It's not a 2.5 hour trip on the water. We were only on the water less than an hour for a total of 3 miles. It takes no time at all to go three miles in a raft. Very disappointed and all four of us really thought it was not worth the money. Very deceiving. We took another raft trip and went 11 miles and we were on the water for 3+ hours. Again, don't waste your money.

I am sorry you hear that you didn't enjoy your tour. As per the description the tour is 2 1/2 hours, the time on floating on the Taiya river is around 30-35 minutes.
