Lighthouse, Totems & Eagles Excursion

    hrs Estimate Duration
  • Family Recommended


Cruise past the naturally beautiful islands around Ketchikan while observing iconic Alaskan wildlife and unique points of interest. Once onboard, relax inside the heated main cabin, out on the observation deck, or move from place to place as you see fit. No matter where you sit or stand, the views will be spectacular. You will see the historic lighthouse on Guard Island, the totem poles at Totem Bight State Park and the now-shuttered Ward Cove pulp mill. You will also witness a diversity of ecosystems as you cruise past coastal residential areas on Revillagigedo Island and along the undeveloped shoreline of Gravina Island, much of which is blanketed by the Tongass National Forest, our world’s largest temperate rainforest. Wildlife is abundant, so keep an eye out for bald eagles, harbor seals and seabirds. A sampler plate of Alaskan specialties, including a traditional alder-smoked salmon, will enhance the experience.

• Admire Alaska’s natural beauty while cruising to and from Guard Island.
• Relax in the boat’s heated main cabin or out on the observation deck.
• See the colorful, carved totem poles at Totem Bight State Park.
• Look for wildlife such as bald eagles, harbor seals and humpback or orca whales.

• Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
• Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.
