Description


  • Round trip transportation from your Ketchikan cruise ship terminal!
  • English speaking certified shore excursion guides!
  • All safety instructions and necessary gear provided!
  • Complimentary snack and beverages!
  • Fun shore excursion for the whole family driving your own Zodiac boat and potential wildlife viewing in Ketchikan!
  • Escape the cruise ship shore excursion crowds and enjoy unique sights of Ketchikan and Alaska!

After being picked up at your Ketchikan cruise ship pier, you will transfer to the Zodiac boat cruise excursion base, approximately 5 minutes away, where you will receive rain gear, boots, face masks, gloves, PFD, dry bags and safety glasses. After a short briefing, you will be ready to head out on the water with those easy to handle, inflatable Zodiac adventure boats!

Your 14-foot inflatable boat holds four excursion guests each. Parties of four will have their own Zodiac boat (one must be 25 years old or over to drive); parties of two or three will share zodiacs with other guests (drivers can alternate several times throughout this Zodiac Shore Excursion from Ketchikan).

Set out for 2 hours to explore one of the most beautiful places in the SE Alaska Inside Passage. Throughout this nearly 25-mile coastal expedition excursion, your Zodiac excursion guide in the lead boat will offer a narrative covering the area's history, geology, culture, and ecology (via boat's radio). You will look for wildlife along the shores, adventure out into large bodies of waters searching for whales, seals, sea lions, or whatever swims by. You may even catch a glimpse of some the commercial crabbing vessels featured on the Discovery Channels Deadliest Catch!

This Ketchikan Back Country Zodiac Wildlife Adventure Excursion takes place in Alaskan coastal waters, not on calm lakes. Chances are it will be bumpy.

Navigating your Zodiac boat through coves and inlets around Blank Island, you will view the tranquil cove of an old gold mine and visit a seal rookery. Before you return to the dock, you will make a brief stop in front of historic Creek Street to learn of its wild history. The tide will dictate how close you can get.

After you dock your Zodiac excursion boat, warm up with a hot beverage. You will then have the option to transfer back to your ship in Ketchikan or enjoy a brief stroll back to your cruise ship through town.

Our guide met us at the location pier on time and the transportation was waiting for us; The travel time was enjoyable and our guide started to explain what to expect from this experience so when we arrived we were super excited! The zodiac boats are super fun and easy to ride. We got to see beautiful wildlife and learn intresting facts about the region.

THE ZODIAC BOATS WERE FUN AND EASY TO DRIVE. THIS WAS A FUN WAY TO EXPLORE THE OUTDOORS. LIKE THE DESCRIPTION MENTIONED, THIS IS NOT AN EASY GOING! THE RIDE WAS FAST AND ROUGH BUT THAT WAS PART OF THE FUN. WE DID STOP IN SEVERAL LOCATIONS TO ADMIRE THE LANDSCAPE AND SOME SEA CREATURES THAT I HAD NOT SEEN ANY WHERE ELSE. WE ALSO GOT REAL CLOSE TO A SEA LION "ISLAND". IT WAS A LARGE ROCK AND HAD 20-3. SEA LIONS!

Driving the zodiac boat was awesome, I didn't have any experience, but the guide taught us how to do it, they were very professional and we felt safe during the whole tour, The equipment is top of the line and the boats look well maintained. This was so much better than sitting on a bus with a bunch of other people. We got out and experienced Alaska. The narration was entertained and you can tell the guides are real experts on the field.
