What To Expect

While in Ketchikan, fill your craving for excitement with this 4-hour off-road vehicle and canoe adventure. After port pickup, your shore excursion begins with a safety briefing on operating a 4WD Jeep Wrangler® at the activities center. You’ll be placed in groups of four, and during the drive, you’ll switch drivers so that everyone has a chance to get behind the steering wheel.
Time to set off! Rev your way on a route deep inside Tongass National Forest, on back roads and through rain forests. Using two-way radios, your group leader-guide shares commentary on the local geology. Blaze past old-growth and new-growth woods, and stop to take pictures at stunning vantage points.
When you arrive at Lake Harriet Hunt, prepare for your next mode of transport — a Native American–style canoe stretching 37 feet (11 meters) long with a capacity to carry 20 passengers. Make your way across the mountain lake, and then follow your guide on a nature hike through an old-growth forest.
Settle down for a snack break at a forest camp, and recharge with clam chowder, smoked salmon and bread rolls buttered with local wild-berry jam, and wash it all down with coffee or hot chocolate.
With plenty of photos and great memories, board your transport that takes you back to Ketchikan port.

Overall the excursion was fun. The canoe ride wasn't too far, but there was no walk in the woods. It would of been nice if we could have done that. That's the only reason I dock it by one star. The off roading was a lot of fun. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Overall I would recommend it.

This a great excursion. We loved the canoe ride and the jeep ride was fun too. Oliver,our tour guide did a great job. The clam chowder and not chocolate was great. Could have used a little more time to enjoy it though.

The jeep ride was truly off-road. Only wish we could have viewed more wildlife. The canoe trip was excellent, the food tasty, and the nature walk very interesting.

Wow, this was an amazing excursion we booked separately from the Disney Cruise. So worth it...small group, safe vehicles and knowledgeable, fun, guides. The canoe safari, lake and salmon bake were ideal. One blip... we were the last excursion of the day and the bus that was suppose to take us back to base, forgot us. The guide had to paddle back out to the middle of the lake to get cell reception, to remind them we were there. delay was less than an hour. Because we were a small group, there were no real complaints. However, had this been an excursion booked from the ship, it would have probably gotten ugly. Take bug repellant as the bugs around the lake were plentiful.

Jeep was absolutely a ton of fun! Canoe in the rain a little less so, but still fun, not long, and they had hot clam chowder and hot chocolate for us, plus a short walk in the woods. Canoeing back was beautiful, rain had stopped and the view was awesome. Overall great excursion, we could not stop laughing on the jeep ride!

A good tour, access to experiences, views, and information probably not available other ways, tour guides were safe, very informative and many first hand experiences which added a great deal to the tour and information, the cookout was great, enjoyed the up close and personal access to the flora and fauna.

Live the bantering between guides Kevin and Jansen, they make the trip fun! Canoe portion was OK nothing exciting. Self drive jeep drive up a rocky bumpy Tongas mountain was awesome!
