What You Can Expect
The boat 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 winds into inlets and secluded bays, and past rain forests. Pass rocky outcrops where orcas and humpbacks are known to surface, and explore streams teeming with salmon that attract black bears.
Your guide stops the Zodiac at a beachside spot for a snack break of cookies, tea and hot cocoa. On land, admire the beauty of your surroundings. Refueled, return sail to the launch site, and receive an Alaskan boatman certificate to remember your wilderness outing.
Your tour ends with transport back to your hotel in Ketchikan.
One of the best excursions we took on our weeklong Alaskan cruise. We saw a LOT of eagles, seals and even an up close encounter with a humpback whale. Tour guide was awesome. Extremely knowledgeable and funny. Highly recommended!!!!
Best day of our trip. Our party of four really enjoyed our experience. An incredible experience and wonderful way to see alaska. Ethan our guide was fantastic and his enthusiasm made our time on the water enjoyable. Bad hair day, but worth every moment on the water. Thank you Ethan. Paul, gwen,sue and jay.
Excellent tour! I drove the Zodiac by myself for the entire trip. It was easy to learn and I mastered it in 5 minutes.
We didn't see a whole lot of wildlife and that which we did see was rather far away not good for photographing. Our tour guide was friendly though.
