Never knew Alaska had a temperate rain forest. The tour was extremely informative. Got to see eagles, salmon, otters and even a bear. Ride in the bus was quite bumpy when they left the paved roads - hang on!
we were so lucky to see the bears in different locations fishing...seen bald eagles, the tour guide was very informative and friendly. Had a great time and learned lots...the making of totem poles also a great bonus...would highly recommend...overall...Great Trip....!!
Pick up was not great, guy did not identify himself, but after that what a fantastic tour, our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. We saw heaps of critters, bears, eagles, both in the wild and at the sanctuary and salmon were just beginning to come upstream. A great day and on the way back in the bus a sighting of killer whales, couldn't ask for more
After looking forward to this trip, I can't express deeply enough how disappointing it was. We were picked up from the port and transported to the Forrest. We were met by Jess, who provided ponchos as it was raining heavy
Jess was very knowledgable about the trees, fauna and slugs!!
Jess informed us the bears were out due to the swollen streams. We didn't mind the rain or the walk.
During our walk I felt as though we were kept on the perimeter and not in the rainforest as the advert suggested.
We saw another group higher and deeper in the forest, which I expected to go.
All too soon we were taken to the totem pole carving and shop
Friends of ours booked from the ship and were taken into the deep forest with ponds where they saw several bears, in the ponds, up trees, wandering about, mother bears with cubs. Their photos were amazing.
What did we see? 3 slugs!!
I feel, as we paid less than them, they were given an improved route, whereas we were kept on the outskirts.
I strongly feel 120 is not cheap to do an hrs walk, if I had known we were going to be given a lower class of trip I would have paid the extra and bought it from the ship, we were so looking forward to this trip more than anything
Sadly, I feel we were let down by the company
I think this is wrong, as people expect the same trip whether it be booked on shore or on ship, as the advert it the same
I had been planning to do the lumberjack show as that seems the standard thing to do in Ketchikan, but I'm so glad we found this instead, it was a lovely and easy walk through the forest, and we did see three black bears - including a mother and her cub fishing in the stream. Our guide was knowledgable and brought what we were looking at to life. We enjoyed hearing the story of the totem pole we watched being carved, and the birds of prey were magnificent. We were rushed at the end with just 10 mi utes for restrooms and gift shop, which was a shame.
