Ketchikan Shore Excursion: Zodiac Boat Wilderness Adventure

About this activity
When your cruise ship docks at the Ketchikan port, you'll be picked up and taken to the launch site for a safety orientation session from your experienced guide. When you and your group of up to four are ready, hop in your 14-foot (4-meter) Zodiac boat and follow your guide on an Alaskan wilderness adventure.

You’ll spend 1.5 hours cruising along secluded bays, past lush 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 can reach speeds of up to 29 mph (47 kph)!

Make your way to a beach for a rest break. Soak in views of the beautiful landscape as you enjoy hot cocoa, tea and cookies.

On your return ride, hand the helm over to your fellow boatman and sit back, relax and enjoy the views. Passing rocky islands, watch for humpback whales and orca, who frequently surface here, and venture deep into bays and inlets where salmon-filled streams attract black bears on shore.

You’ll receive an Alaskan boatman certificate to commemorate this amazing wilderness experience. At the end of your tour, you'll be taken back to the port.

Greg, the guide, was very friendly and communicative. Driving the boats was fun. The only thing I would suggest is to add bluetooth headsets of some sort. When you are blasting along in the water, it is impossible for the guide to provide information on what you are seeing around you.
