Full description

Travel back to the times of traditional mining and try the simple but rewarding technique of gold panning in Skagway. Bring the kids along and watch them hit gold with a Cheechako pan, swirl your pans together, and create a souvenir from the gold you find.

Take part in the old mining method of separating particles from the soil by washing them with water in a pan. Grab your pan, listen to the instructions of the knowledgeable staff, and enjoy a laidback experience by playing as you learn.

If you're a cruise passenger, take advantage of this unique experience, located close to the port and available at any time within opening hours on your booked date. Forget about stressful scheduling and arrive whenever your ship docks to begin your insightful mining lesson.
