After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a brief but scenic drive up the coast to Totem Bight State Historical Park, where you will become immersed in the culture of the Tlingit and Haida Indians of Southeast Alaska. Starting in the 1940s, they constructed a model village here in the rainforest to accurately present their customs and family life to visitors.


As you wander through the village, you will see colorful, hand-carved totem poles and a large clan house similar to ones built in the early 19th century. These houses were the living quarters for several families of the same lineage. Personal effects were typically stored under removable floorboards, while food was hung from the rafters.


The village offers a fascinating insight into the culture of the indigenous people, as will your experience on nearby Lake Harriet Hunt. Here, you will board a 37-foot canoe patterned after the ones that the Tlingit and Haida built. The lake provides a beautiful setting for your paddling adventure because the dense forest comes to the edge of the water.


In time, you will disembark for a traditional Alaskan snack of smoked salmon. Then, you will have the opportunity to walk through an old-growth forest while your guide points out the most interesting flora and perhaps fauna. Afterwards, you will return to Ketchikan.
