This is about the wildlife, not jumping wakes in a zodiac. Our tour guide, caroline was very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and culture and gave the tour depth. Present on our tour were eagles, seal lions, seals, blue jays, ravens, whales and kelp. The tour company provides appropriate gear to keep you warm and dry while on the water. It was all very clean and freshly washed. We would do this tour again!

This adventure was great! The guide Ben, made it perfect. Such a knowledgeable, professional, personable young man. The boats were in great condition, great instructions, clean appropriate clothing provided. We saw Bald Eagles, Seals, Salmon jumping in the water, and got to hold onto some star fish. Great transportation to and from and a nice salmon dip at the end. I would do it again.

We had a great time on the Zodiak wildlife adventure! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the local area and animals and pointed out interesting items in the water that we would have otherwise missed. Our tour guide even had worked previously with the granddaughter of Jacques Cousteau. It was so much fun to drive the Zodiak boat for the entire tour time and the Company gives you all necessary gear i.e. rain gear, head warmers, life vest, etc. We even saw an eagle diving into the water for food! The company gives you a complementary printed photo of your boat as a keepsake. Highly recommend!

My wife and I were excited about the Zodiac boat excursion but it ended up exceeding our expectations. They did an excellent job picking us up right in front of our cruise ship and taking us by van to their place. Getting into the gear was quick and easy. Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. We got to see whales, seals, eagles and many other really cool sights. The once it was over they took us right back to the ship. We had a great time and would highly recommend this excursion while stopped in Ketchikan.

This was amazing! Just loved having Mary as our guide. This beats an air tour by far, to be so up close to the sea life.

The tour was fun. We didn't see any wildlife other than a ton of eagles and a whale too far away to get to safely. Our tour guide did a great job educating us on the area and it was fun to drive our own raft.
