Enjoy a scenic drive through historic downtown Ketchikan, past the totems of Saxman Native Village, and along the beautiful coastline of the Tongass Narrows.
Walk a rain forest trail to the Beaver Falls Salmon Cannery. Here, you'll don rain gear, rubber boots and a life jacket and listen to a safety briefing. Get behind the wheel of a motorized Zodiac boat and take off on an exhilarating adventure through George Inlet Fjord. Follow the lead guide caravan style as you steer yourself on a route tailored to the day's conditions. This region has mountainous terrain, lush forest, and pristine scenery.
Your guide will share the rich stories of the loggers from the timber years and the nearby fishing camps. From the natural sounds of the flowing waterfalls to the hidden coves, keep your eyes open for active wildlife, including bald eagles, harbor seals, Sitka black-tail deer, black bears, and salmon streams.
Routes may vary upon the tide levels but can include a zip up to the mouth of Mahoney Glacial Cirque, Mahoney Asche Mine, Coon Cove, and White River Cove.
