Overview Of The Port Of Skagway

About Skagway
Skagway is in Alaska, a state in the United States of America, situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent.

Ride the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, a narrow gauge train which follows the path that pioneers in search of Klondike Gold used.

Maps are available at Skagway Visitors Centre for walking tours of Skagway.

Book a Skagway Street Car Tour and learn about the port's Gold Rush history onboard a restored yellow Mac Model B.

For more history, visit the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park Visitor Centre.

The main shopping area is located on Broadway, here you will find lots of tourist type shops, bookstores and good local arts and craft stores. Gifts include jewellery, hand painted ceramics and knitwear.

The touristy Red Onion Saloon, a Gold Rush era meeting point, was a former brothel.

Stop at Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp, originally set up by press men to report from the front lines of the Gold Rush.

For a unique (and expensive) experience, book a Dog Sledding and Glacier Flightseeing tour.

Visit the American Bald Eagle Centre in downtown Haines, which is a ferry ride away.

Play on the 9 hole golf course, which is set at 60 degrees north latitude.

Fresh fish and seafood are the main staples on menus here, local dishes include Alaskan king crab and strip loin of elk.
Cruise Terminal
Most cruise ships use one of three deep water docks. The Ferry Dock may also be used for smaller ships but all docks are a short walk into town.

There are no passenger facilities here.

Visitors can catch the municipal bus into town from the docks.

The Skagway Visitors Centre on Broadway is around a 10 minute walk away.

Bike and car hire are available (it's best to organise car hire in advance though).
