Tour Details

Come be a part of this phenomenal Wilderness Adventure Cruise and Rainforest Exploration. It's a part you'll be thrilled to play!

Before boarding your motorized ocean raft, called a Seahawk, you will be given safety information and put on life jackets. You will then travel along the coast of Clover Passage. During the ride, you may be lucky enough to see wildlife such as bald eagles, whales, sea lions, and seals.

Upon arrival on a remote island in the Tongass National Forest, you will join an experienced Alaskan trail guide for a walk through natural, unspoiled beauty in the coastal rainforest. The trail takes you through a beautiful old-growth forest, by way of a secluded beach, and is mostly boardwalk, about one-mile in length and well maintained. Home to a diverse cross-section of animals including bears, eagles, salmon, sand hill cranes, wolves and trumpeter swans, you will learn about the many amazing botanical species native to this region.

Follow your knowledgeable guide through this ancient forest and learn about botanic species native to this region, such as western red cedar and yellow cedar that early natives were so dependent upon for spiritual enrichment, shelter and transportation. Learn how Sitka spruce was instrumental in the construction of Howard Hughes' famous Spruce Goose and early vintage fighter planes.

After your approximately 45-minute hike, you will have some free time to wander on your own or enjoy a light snack. Then it's back in the 24-passenger inflatable for the trip back to the landing pier. Keep your eyes open as whales, Steller sea lions, harbor seals, porpoises, bald eagles and migrating seabirds may be spotted on this route. Bring your camera and binoculars! Once back on land, drive back to Ketchikan.
