What You Can Expect

Ketchikan Rainforest Nature Walk and Sightseeing Cruise

Nature Walk

After meeting your guide in downtown Ketchikan, board the small and nimble rigid-hull inflatable boat for a wildlife tour by water.

Your captain points out animals as your powerful motorized raft glides along the coast of Clover Passage and Betton Island. You might see a bald eagle's nest, whales, Steller sea lions, harbor seals, and migrating seabirds.

Your captain lands at a secluded beach so that you can walk around the ancient Tongass National Forest. Follow your guide into the largest national forest in the United States, which covers almost 17 million acres (7 million hectares). Learn about the many native botanical species of the region, and Alaskan animals including bears, wolves, salmon, sand hill cranes, and trumpeter swans.

You'll also hear about the importance of the Western red cedar and yellow cedar to local Native Americans as you walk along a well-maintained 1-mile (2-km) boardwalk. Along the beach, you might see starfish or sea cucumber, and learn how native peoples used seaweed.

Nibble an Alaska-style snack by the campfire and soak in the gorgeous scenery before your return journey to Ketchikan.
