The Wilderness Jetboat Adventure was a two-hour tour that cruised into Alaska's untamed wild land.The trip began aboard the "Talkeetna Queen" as it whisked the two RV Gypsies into the heart of the wilderness in comfort. This river jet boat was designed to safely navigate rivers that were previously inaccessible. This was the second time that the two RV Gypsies have been on this tour. They only repeated this boat ride because family was with them. Here is the link to their first trip, but if you go there, be sure to return here. Each trip to Alaska was quite different, even if the two RV Gypsies went to a place more than once. Alaska is always changing.
