Excellent crew. Wanted to see bald eagles and the crew was great in spotting them and their nests. Also very informative narration as we motored around the island. Really appreciated being provided with binoculars for this excursion.
This was a great excursion. The Captain and crew were kind and accommodating -- and also very entertaining. They were knowledgable and we were able to see many eagles and nests and enjoyed the cruise very much. Would highly recommend this excursion.
Very enjoyable day on the water. Ramps available for mobility challenged people but extremely steep
I highly recommend this tour ... great views and wonderful service. We saw lots of eagles, sea lions, and beautiful views along with learning a great deal about the area from the guides.
We were happy with the tour. We were met at the ship, taken to the tour boat, and embarked without difficulty or delay. We saw eagles, totems, the lighthouse, and harbor seals. The crew was very friendly and informative. The weather was not the best, but that's not the fault of the crew.
Captain knows exactly where the eagles are and enjoys sharing his little piece of Alaska with others
Capt. Joe Linehan and crew took us on an enjoyable comfortable boat tour about the Bay and Islands. Spotted eagles and their nest and sea lions along the shore. Capt. Joe kept us informed of the History of the area as well as other trivia. Told us about the Natives of the area and dwellings
A VERY GOOD TOUR. Saw eagles and nests and the scenery is outstanding .
About 20 people on an ample boat with both indoor and out door seating. Refreshments, very helpful crew and we saw every thing promised including many many eagles. Crew member played a green trombone and passed out hot chocolate. Who could ask for more. This was a good choice.
This tour delivered what all that it promised - lighthouses, totems, lots and lots of eagles and harbor seals. A lovely and informative day spent on the water with Captain Ron and his crew.
Cap.Rob was awesome. Loved the trombone!!!Crew was polite and very courteous
Another great day. We saw many bald eagles both young and mature. The weather was perfect. We had a great tour guide and it was an excellent learning experience.
We were amazed at the quantity of balk eagles and eagle nests on this outing. The scenery was unbelievable, the excursion boat and personnel were great. We certainly got what we paid for and then some. Thanks.
Our guide was most informative and entertaining-made the trip. Saw lots of eagles and stuff!
Wonderful and fun time. We had good weather with a few showers but that is Ketchikan. The Captain and his crew were great and took good care of us with food drink. We saw many eagles.
A picture perfect day spent touring the waters of Ketchikan with a fun and knowledgeable team of guides. The salmon dip lives up to its rep and the yummy snacks hit the spot during our boat ride. This was a great trip and worth the money, The ride from the cruise port takes you through Ketchikan and out to the working part of the island. We saw eagles as soon as stepped on board as they were hanging out right in logger town. More eagles along the bay, a nice view of the totems at the Saxman village, great view of the little lighthouse and a bonus- some up close sightings of seals and sea lions catching their breakfast in the kelp beds. This is a fantastic tour when you have a limited time in port- five stars all the way! NOTE- the gangway is long and very steep. I would not recommend it for people with wheelchairs or walkers.
We had fabulous weather and saw many bald eagles. Very enjoyable excursion!
Captain Rob and his crew were very entertaining, informative and funny. They entertained us very well and the refreshments were just right.
Great experience with an extremely knowledgeable Captain. Captain Rob was the best! He not only had an intimate knowledge of the area but he was also extremely entertaining. The crew on the boat were amazing. Friendly and also very helpful. Best hot chocolate ever!
If you want to get up close and personal with the local Bald Eagles, this is the tour. As an added bonus you will also get to see some of the local aquatic wildlife in the form of seals.
This was the first land tour of many excursions my wife and I booked to enrich our Alaska cruise vacation. Just checked the notes I wrote as we went along. A review I read when booking this tour indicated that the gangway from land onto the boat is long and steep; quite true! We saw only one lighthouse and only one set of totem poles; the tour emphasized sighting eagles' nests. The bus driver who drove us from Ketchikan to the dock was knowledgeable and entertaining. I enjoyed an informative conversation with the boat captain, and an even more pleasant chat with "Eddie," the assistant conductor on the top deck who played trombone to call whales. The experience was much richer when I made my way to the top deck, as contrasted with staying in the lower cabin.
