Rainforest Canoe & Nature Trail

Your adventure begins with a scenic motorcoach tour to a secluded mountain lake, where you'll board an Indian-style 37 foot, 20 passenger canoes which are fast, stable and easy to maneuver. Paddle under the direction of an experienced guide, scan the shore for wildlife and learn the unique natural and Indian history of the Ketchikan area. The lake, part of a lush rain forest, is ideal for canoeing and is surrounded by the Tongass National Forest, the largest in the United States.


Stop ashore for a Native-style snack including smoked fish, clam chowder, rolls with wild berry jams and beverages. A knowledgeable guide will lead a short nature walk highlighting the flora and fauna of the rainforest, including a carnivorous plant, the Sundew, which uses tentacles with an adhesive "dew" to ensnare small insects. Paddle back to the canoe dock and reboard your motorcoach, for your returns to the cruise ship pier.


Note: Participants must be at least 40 lbs. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Children 13-17 must have a signed parental consent form to participate in the absence of a parent or guardian. Not recommended for pregnant women.
