While docked in port, don’t miss this award-winning, 3-hour shore excursion that takes you on a guided coach tour of Ketchikan and a cruise aboard a heated vessel. Capture unparalleled views of the Guard Island Lighthouse and Totem Bight State Park. Visit the Vallenar Rocks Wildlife Viewing Area and catch sight of various eagle nests. American bald eagles, whales and blue heron are just some of the wildlife you may spot along the way. Port transport included.
  • Award-winning guided tour of Ketchikan and the surrounding area
  • See an abundance of eagles (binoculars provided)
  • Enjoy exclusive views of Totem Bight State Park from the water
  • Complimentary food and beverages, including a traditional salmon spread
  • Up-close experience with dozens of species

After port pickup, start with a city tour of Ketchikan and neighboring area, gaining historical insight along the way, before arriving at a private dock. Step aboard your boat equipped with outdoor observation decks and a heated main cabin. Be sure to help yourself to the delicious snacks and drinks on board, which typically include salmon spread, cheese, fruit, cookies, hot chocolate, tea and coffee. Pick up a copy of the salmon spread recipe to take home!

Enjoy views of Tongass National Forest, pass by the Ward Cove Cannery and catch sight of Loggerville, the ‘floating ghost town of Alaska.’ Admire Totem Bight State Park and the Guard Island Lighthouse from unique vantage points, thanks to your captain, and part of why this tour has earned multiple awards over many years, including the CRUISE award.

Use the provided binoculars for even better views of bald eagles, their nests, as well as whales, harbor seals, moon jellyfish and blue heron, all in their natural habitat.

Your 3-hour excursion ends with transport back to your cruise terminal.

My husband and I enjoyed this trip. I had done a considerable amount of research before I booked this trip so was very happy that it was exactly as I expected. Saw lots of eagles, and even a whale! Having beautiful weather and extremely friendly crew all helped to make the day most pleasurable.

Knowlegable and friendly staff. We saw almost 20 Bald Eagles including 4 juvenile ones and 6 Eagle's nests- some of which were occupied. Also about 20 seals on rock island out by historic Lighthouse near Harbour entrance. Captain and crew very helpful. Binoculars provided for all. Hot chocolate,cheese and crackers, fruit salad complementary. Easy access even for my 94 y.o. Mother and the Captain let her sit in his chair and put on First mate's cap auto pilot was on for experience and photos Picked up and delivered to Cruise Ship pier. Covered and open areas on 2 level cruiser. Great view of Totem park and waterfront homes of Ketchikan. Highly recommend this as full value experience

Absolutely wonderful. We were greeted by Captain Jeff fairly near where our ship docked. We had good instructions on the confirmation. He had lots of experience of the area as he was born and has always lived in Ketchikan. His information was great and delivered really well. Making the trip to the boat fantastic. Capt. Joe took over and once again the boat trip could not have been better. We saw so much wildlife and Capt Joe stopped many times for us to get our photo. Thanks. We would highly recommend this company.
