Worry-free Shore Excursion:

If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

After port pickup, your 3.5-hour Alaskan shore excursion begins with a picturesque coach ride to a quiet mountain lake. Here, board a stable, easy-to-maneuver, Native American–style canoe large enough to accommodate your group. Navigate across a lake through the Tongass National Forest, the largest national forest in the United States. Hear about the Native American history of the Ketchikan area, and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife along the shoreline.

Dock the canoe, and dig into delicious Native American–style snacks, including clam chowder, smoked fish, fresh bread rolls with wild berry jams, and refreshing beverages. Revitalized, set off after your guide on a short nature walk through the rain forest. Then, paddle back to the departing dock and enjoy transport back to the cruise ship port.

Had a great Tour Guide, very nice and funny (a big plus!). Everyone paddles, which is great exercise. Didn't really go anywhere, just paddled around a big lake. Saw one Bald Eagle, but no other wildlife, a big disappointment! Nature walk was about 15 minutes looking at plants... pretty boring really! They supplied some yummy snacks, had a fun time, but leaving Alaska feeling like we really saw nothing we don't see at home (WA State).

A great trip. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable, telling us stories about many of the different plants within the forest. The canoe trip was nice as well. The snack provided was amazing, homemade stuff that was both local and delicious. Perhaps the only thing I might desire is a longer walk through the forest.
