We strive to share with our guests an authentic Alaskan experience showcasing Ketchikan’s history, culture, environment, and wildlife, while also providing them with the warm hospitality for which Alaskans are best known.
What we'll do
Our company van will pick you up on the cruise ship pier to travel through Ketchikan and enjoy a fully narrated city tour on the way to our private dock in Ward Cove. Meet your Alaskan captain and two deckhands, and board your vessel for a scenic, narrated excursion through the protected waters of our nearshore route of the Inside Passage. You’ll encounter plentiful American bald eagles and their nests, view the beautiful Alaska Native totem poles and clan house at Totem Bight State Park in panorama, and learn about the unique architecture of the first lighthouse to be built in Alaska. During the tour, your captain will provide a customized narrative consisting of history, culture, geology, and wildlife. Wildlife sightings also often include seals, sea lions, blue heron and other seabirds, and sometimes even humpback and orca whales. Photo opportunities are plentiful on this seafaring excursion.
