Step back in time and relive Juneau's gold rush history while panning for gold in the authentic setting of Gold Creek.

Boarding your transportation at the pier, you will be greeted by a costumed prospector and enjoy a narrated tour through Juneau's historic district before making your way to Last Chance Basin. The route you will travel along traces the same one taken by Joe Juneau and Richard Harris in their search for gold over 100 years ago.

Near the famous Alaska-Juneau gold mine, which during its peak was one of the world's largest hard rock mining operations, you will get to experience hands-on the excitement of panning for gold in Gold Creek. After a panning demonstration, you will take your place alongside the creek and see what treasures it will offer up to you. While finding gold is guaranteed on this tour, if luck is on your side, maybe it will be a big gold nugget to take home!

When your panning session is over, you will have a chance to view the remnants of the old mine as your guide recaptures the history of Juneau's gold discovery and hard rock mining.

All too soon, it's time to rejoin your transportation for the transfer back to the pier.
