Experience the best Seward gold panning tours in Alaska!

We will teach you the ropes with a gold panning demonstration in our elevated troughs by our rustic gift shop. Personalized how-to demonstrations will have you panning like a pro, while providing some local humor and history along the way. Truly Alaskan experience!

Where to pan for gold:

The canvas-covered log framed structure where we pan for gold is located just across from our walking bridge, between our office and the gift shop. Depending on the salmon run, we can often spy salmon in the creek. The covered troughs allow us to stay dry while panning, which makes this the perfect activity, rain or shine!

We pan in elevated wooden troughs with proven pay dirt so there is a possibility of everyone taking home their very own Alaskan Gold and gems!

Find more than gold:

Learn how to pan, searching for gold and semi-precious stones that we also find around Alaska. Some treasures can include, Red Jasper, Hematite, Fluorite, Quartz, Amethyst, Red Agate, Tourmaline, and Garnet.
