Experience the 'Salmon Capital of the World' on a sightseeing cruise featuring wildlife viewing, and a taste of locally caught Alaska seafood delicacies at a historic cannery. Set off on your deluxe motor coach for a narrated trip to Downtown Ketchikan where your vessel awaits. Cruise aboard an Alaskan built vessel exploring the rugged coastline of the Tongass Narrows and glacier-carved George Inlet. An onboard Naturalist will share local knowledge and point out places of interest and wildlife. As wildlife is sighted, your experienced Captain will maneuver the vessel to provide the best possible views.


The expedition includes a visit to Walden Rocks, a favorite seal haul-out and prominent gathering place for bald eagles and marine birds. Whales, sea lions, and porpoises are also frequently sighted in this area.


At the historic Libby Cannery, situated in a remote rainforest setting, you will taste your way through Alaska's robust commercial fishing industry. The experience begins with a hearty bowl of salmon chowder and introduction to this once bustling maritime center. Then, you will have the opportunity to meander through the well-preserved cannery, visiting displays that highlight Southeast Alaska's various fisheries including trolling, purse seining, long-lining, and crabbing. As you explore, enjoy a taste of freshly caught seafood while sipping on local craft beer. Locally caught offerings include salmon - smoked onsite, salmon roe, halibut, oysters, and crab served two ways. While at the Cannery, be sure to check out the historic Tsirku canning line - the only functioning equipment of its kind in the world.


A beautiful rainforest trail will lead to your deluxe motor coach for a narrated trip back to Ward Cove. The scenic drive provides an opportunity to glimpse the world's largest collections of totem poles at Saxman Native Village and view historic Creek Street - a colorful row of charming homes and shops built on pilings over Ketchikan Creek. You will be dropped off in downtown Ketchikan where you can explore and shop before hopping on a free shuttle back to the ship.
