necessary and it helps to have a basic knowledge of
bike mechanics. You will also drive the tour vans and must be able to pass
DOT and insurance requirements.
Our first year guides are Skagway-based and operate our day tours. Guides can expect full time work June to September. Compensation starts at $12 per hour and is supplemented by regular tips and an end of season bonus.
in 1988, Sockeye Cycle has bicycle shops in Haines and Skagway AK. We
run tours (both day tours and extended multi-day adventures), rent bikes, and sell and
service bikes. We've been included on the list of Americas Best Bike
Shops and qualify for Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence for our tour program.
