For our Ketchikan Silent Off-Road Buggy Rainforest Family Adventure Excursion you will be met right in the center of downtown Ketchikan by your electric ATV buggy guide who will then take you on a 20-minute informative ride to the thriving community of Ward Cove, just outside of Ketchikan, where your Electric Bad Boy Buggy is waiting. The shore excursion staff will give you an introduction to your top modern all-terrain vehicle and a safety briefing before assigning you to your automatic drive, 4-passenger rainforest buggy. One of the unique features of these fun vehicles is that they are silent so guests travel through the rainforest without interrupting nature!

Then set off on a scenic 45-minute all-terrain buggy journey (each buggy is equipped with interconnected radio) to experience the beauty of the Alaskan Rainforest, away from the crowded cruise ship shore excursions. You will savor the opportunity to smell, touch, and truly feel the beauty of the old-growth forest from your family-friendly open-air ATV buggy instead of closed up in a bus. Your electric Bad Boy Buggy family adventure excursion guide will educate you via two-way radios about the local history, culture of the area, and some of the trees, including Sitka spruce, western hemlock, and western red cedar that you are driving under. Closer to the ground are blueberry, salmonberry, and huckleberry bushes that provide fresh treats to the many birds and occasionally black bears that dine on them. Soon you will arrive at a wilderness campsite.

Here, you will have the opportunity to sit around a campfire, roast a marshmallow, (of course chocolate and graham crackers will be nearby) eat some pancakes with local blueberries in them or drink some hot chocolate while you learn about the nearby Lake Connell Dam and its amazing construction feat. Lake Connell dam was built in the 1950s and the lake it formed is now a popular destination for nature study and trout fishing. The total time at the campsite is approximately 30 minutes.

The 30-minute return to base camp is via the historic Connell Lake wooden pipeline trail. This is a great Ketchikan adventure cruise excursion for the whole family, from great-grandma to grandkids. It is also ideal for folks with limited mobility who want to experience the rainforest but have a difficult time walking.

Arriving back at the buggy shore excursion base camp, you will board your transportation for the 20-minute ride back to downtown Ketchikan and the cruise ship docks.

Please note that this excursion is restricted for Disney Cruise Line on Saturdays only; on other days Disney guests can book.

Alaska's best

This is definitely, the best way to see Alaska. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area, my family loved him. The excursion was fun, interesting, bumpy, exciting and we learned a lot about the wildlife, we respect it now even more :) The vehicles are just too cool.

Perfect choice for my family. Our vehicle was like an Atv but better and alot more safe. The crew was waiting for us and they made sure that along the way we saw different creatures, plants, bugs and we felt in real Alaskan forest. We also had campfire and children loved it. I totally recommend this excursion.

Interactive excursion that allows you to admire the rain forest from the comfort of the buggies. It was incredible! You smell, feel and sense nature surrounding you. There's no need to rush and go full speed but to simply admire. Since they are electric we had no issues hearing our guide Sarah (who by the way was the best!) I would love to come out here and camp out the whole day!

So much fun

My husband and I took our children (8 and 11 years old) for this excursion because Shore Excursioneer recommended it for families, so glad we followed their advice, this excursion is WONDERFUL!!! The four of us got to ride our own buggy, my husband and I took turns since our children are not old enough to drive. Alaska rainforest is something totally worth visiting, I thought that everything was ice and glaciers up there, haha... The big highlight of this tour was the campfire, we ate some delicious s'mores while learning about the lake nearby. We are all looking forward to returning to Alaska for more amazing adventures! Thank you all!
