Be the captain of your own Zodiac boat on this Alaskan adventure from Ketchikan. Choose a morning or afternoon departure for your 3-hour tour, which begins with convenient hotel pickup. Upon arrival at the launch site, receive a safety briefing and then climb aboard your Zodiac boat, 14 feet (4 meters) long, along with the others from your small group.

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.
