What You Can Expect
With your guide’s help, get to know the boat that comes equipped with console steering and can speed up to 29 mph (47 kph). During the 90-minute cruise, you’ll take turns at the wheel as the boat makes its way into inlets and bays, and past rain forests. See rocky outcrops where orcas and humpbacks are known to surface, and discover streams filled with salmon that attract black bears.
Your guide pulls the Zodiac over to a scenic beachside location, where you’ll enjoy a snack break of cookies, tea and hot cocoa. Soak up the beauty of your surroundings and then refueled, set voyage back to the launch site.
Your shore excursion ends with transport back to Ketchikan port, with an Alaskan boatman certificate in hand to remember your wilderness outing.

The HIGHLIGHT of our Alaska cruise! No kidding, my wife and I both agree that the Boatman Zodiac tour with Southeast Exposure was our favorite experience of the trip, and that's saying a lot. We had a small group, four people with two boats, and our tour guide, Greg, took us out on the waters next to Ketchikan. My wife got some air while driving and hitting a few waves. Saw plenty of wildlife and also got to relax and listen to Alaska as Greg put it. This should go to the top of your Kethcikan priorities list.
Great trip. Our guides were fantastic

Great ride. So much fun. Very professional. The pick up was comfortable, and the vehicle was clean.
They provided us with all the safety gear. That was a hoot. The zodiac boats were clean, ran well and had the power when needed. Our guide Jason? sorry should remember. Was very professional, fun, informative, native to the area. Saw my first eagles nest. So thrilling. A must do with this company.
Take a your camera and binoculars. Sun glasses, gloves and hat a must.
Wow!!!!!! The best.
Cannot fault the whole trip.the guide was brilliant, the boats were great fun, we had a ball. We took a 8 and 10 year old and they loved it. no whales on that day but it could not be helped. Pick up was a little confusing but got sorted in the end, then we had our own van to take us back with a friendly member of staff! cannot recommend enough! If unsure just remember you only live once
This was awesome! The boats were a blast to drive and saw lots of wildlife.
Much more fun than a "normal" tour.
Ethan was our guide. Informative and fun. He made the trip an experience we won't forget. Highly recommend this excursion!
Beautiful scenery. Nice clean new boats. The tour guide was well informed, polite and always had safety in mind.
Beautiful day to be on the water. Guide was very helpful and went out of his way to ensure we understood everything (scenery and wildlife) we were exposed to. Highly recommended.
WoW what a great excursion. The zodiac boats were a blast; my husband and our group loved being able to drive these boats! We had great weather (June 20, 2013), saw lots of wildlife (whale, seals, eagles). The tour guide Sean was very personable and informative. I would highly recommend this adventure.
