Captain Charlie Binkley first arrived in Fairbanks in 1898 with dreams of piloting sternwheelers on the great river systems of Alaska and the Yukon.

A great family tradition was founded in Fairbanks and over 90 years later his descendants still continue to carry passengers on Alaska’s rivers. The Discovery Sternwheelers are the only remaining authentic sternwheelers left in the state.

Consistently rated as one of the best tours in Alaska by international travel writers, the Riverboat is one tour that you must be sure not to miss. 1975 Discovery Drive 1-866-479-6673
