About UsTour InfoContact us

Formed in the fall of 1994 by six Wrangell Alaska charter tour companies, the Stikine River Jet Boat Association offers a combined 108 years of Stikine River charter experience with more than 175 years of total boating experience. Individually, each of our current members has more than 20 years boating experience with an average of 14 years operating tours on the Stikine River.

In addition to incorporating safety requirements beyond those of the USCG, all jet boat captains are Emergency Trauma Technicians or First Aid trained and CPR qualified. All Stikine River Jet Boat Association jet boat captain and crewmembers are enrolled in and subject to a random drug-testing program. Stikine River Jet Boat Association vessels must also meet our associations strict requirements based upon both safety and guest comfort. Equipped with basic first aid kits, survival kits and VHF marine radios with Wrangell Search & Rescue frequencies all vessels are covered and have removable side curtains. A flotation device is provided for each guest prior to departure to assure maximum comfort. Guests are greeted dockside and given a vessel-specific safety briefing by their captain once aboard.

The successes met by the Stikine River Jet Boat Association have been evident in customer satisfaction surveys, feedback from cruise line shore excursion managers, the increase in tour participants and newer “copy cat” operators.
