Be the captain of your own Zodiac boat on this Alaskan wilderness adventure from Ketchikan! Follow your guide along gorgeous bays, past lush islands, and deep into inlets, keeping an eye out for wildlife such as whales, eagles and bears along the way. Stop by a beach for a warm snack and take home an Alaskan boatman certificate to commemorate your amazing experience.
This small-group tour is limited to four people, ensuring you’ll received personalized attention from your guide.
You'll be picked up from your Ketchikan hotel at your selected departure time and taken to the launch site for a safety orientation session from your experienced guide. When you’re ready, hop in your 14-foot (4-meter) Zodiac boat with your group of up to four people, and follow your guide on an Alaskan wilderness adventure.
You’ll spend 1.5 hours cruising along secluded bays, past lush rainforest islands, and deep into inlets. During your exhilarating ride, keep an eye out for wildlife including whales, seals, eagles, sea lions and bears along the shore. Your boat is fully equipped with console steering and seating for up to four people, and can reach speeds of up to 29 mph (47 kph)!
Make your way to a beach for a rest break and some delicious hot cocoa, tea and cookies. Take time here to soak in views of the beautiful landscape.
On your return trip, hand the helm over to your fellow boatman for your turn to sit back, relax and enjoy the views. Pass rocky islands where humpback whales and orca frequently surface, and venture deep into bays and inlets where salmon-filled streams attract black bears.
You’ll receive an Alaskan boatman certificate at the end of your tour to commemorate this amazing wilderness experience!
