About

We started Breakaway Adventures by offering fishing charters back in 1989. We started offering guided Anan Bear Tours in the early 1990’s and soon followed that with Jet Boat tours on the Stikine River. Soon we were offering tours to LeConte Glacier and by the mid late 1990’s included as an option going into Petersburg, Alaska, for additional fee and time. We also offer many Water Taxi options ranging from trips between Wrangell and Petersburg, USFS Recreation Cabins or Skiff / Canoe / Kayak rentals with drop offs.  As you can see we have had a long and great history of offering tours in Wrangell. Our wish is for you to have the best experience available and we are the company for you!
Other Options we have available for Rent: Bicycles, Canoes and Kayaks.

Breakaway Adventures operates 4 of the most modern jet boats in the Wrangell vicinity.  Two of our boats are custom built by Bentz Boats, one boat built by Duckworth and one boat custom built by Svendsen Marine Works right here in Wrangell.  Three boats are twin 315 horsepower diesel engine powered for additional safety and reliability compared to gas powered boats. The “Glacier Chaser” is our 24′ single diesel engine 6 passenger vessel which also has forward facing seats (one of kind here in Wrangell). Learn more about these vessels that set the jet boat standard in Wrangell  that other companies have followed by clicking HERE.

With these 4 vessels Breakaway Adventures offers you the best seating and viewing comfort plus more deck room than any of our competitors. Our service, boats and  friendship have made us the Premier Jet Boat Company in Wrangell since we started business in 1989. We hope that you choose to go with the best.  We meet or exceed all United States Coast Guard regulations for inspected vessels.

While there are several choices in operations in Wrangell  we have the most years of operation. Breakaway Adventures has 4 vessels to utilize so we can give you the tour you deserve with out leaving early or late or provide shortened tours as some single boat operations do to accommodate operate two tours per day. Our vessels have generally set the standard for equipment, first to have sliding glass windows through out the boat (some don’t), windshield wipers on the front door/ windows (some don’t), stand up walk in cabins (some don’t), life rafts, first vessels with forward facing seats (some don’t), there are many other unique features.  Being an original company that started the jet boat tours currently offered by many competitors in Wrangell is your assurance of a great experience in Wrangell and surrounding areas.
