Gray Line of Alaska’s mv Yukon Queen II is the only dayboat that cruises the Yukon River. You’ll travel 180 miles into Gold Rush country and areas of Alaska and the Yukon that are truly untouched and wild. Your journey from Eagle, Alaska to Dawson City, Yukon Territory, will be an incomparable adventure while you watch for eagles, bears, moose, and more from one of the spectacular viewing decks.

Cruise into gold rush history as you travel the legendary waterway that carried thousands of prospectors to the Klondike gold fields. This 104-mile stretch of unspoiled wilderness between Eagle, Alaska and Dawson City, in Canada’s Yukon has seen its share of adventure. Yet it’s as pristine as ever and teeming with wildlife. Guests can sightsee from expansive picture windows on the main deck, capture a scenic photo on the protected outdoor deck, or scan the horizon from the Crow’s Nest Lounge. There is a snack bar, gift shop and no-host bar, plus a hearty lunch or dinner served along the way.
