    Live the thrill of gliding through the top of a rich rain forest canopy along a series of seven zip-lines with three aerial bridges suspended between tall spruce, hemlock and cedar trees, bordering the magnificent Tongass National Forest. This major rain forest reserve embraces one of Alaska's richest salmon spawning streams and a pristine intertidal estuary. Abundant wildlife habitat here includes a high concentration of bald eagles, black bear and a variety of other species.


    At Herring Cove, an all-terrain custom 4x4 Unimog will transport you up a steep rain forest hillside to the canopy chalet. Professionally trained guides will outfit you with state-of-the-art safety equipment and provide a detailed orientation before you mount the first platform.


    Your rain forest canopy challenge features a 'flight' over seven zip-lines. Your guide will progressively ease you into the forest canopy along cables ranging from a short 100 feet to the 750-foot, pulse-pounding Ben's Revenge. Eagles and bears are often seen from the platforms. Cross three hanging bridges offering breathtaking views of the virgin forest below.


    Time permitting, explore the totem park and a historic sawmill, see an eagle up close at the Alaska Raptor Center and watch a blacksmith at work. Stop by the General Store to see photos taken during your zip-line experience and to shop for mementos of your Alaska adventure.


    Your excursion concludes with a scenic drive back to the ship.

There you will board a Blackbird Hovercraft and enjoy a narrated tour en route to a local beach. As you fly 20 inches over water, your tour guide will describe the operations of this “air cushion” vehicle and what makes a hovercraft eco-friendly.

    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.

While at the Cannery, be sure to check out the historic Tsirku canning line - the only functioning equipment of its kind in the world.

    Cruise into the sheltered waters of the Inside Passage looking for whales, porpoise and other Alaskan wildlife, and then pull up to a forested island to feast around a bonfire. There is no telling what you may see as the captain navigates the boat into remote coves and around forested islands. Humpback whales are often spotted, even close to shore, and the sight is mesmerizing. Two other types of cetaceans – orcas and Dall’s porpoise – are also commonly seen. Orcas tend to travel in large groups. Dall’s porpoise can easily be identified by their distinct rooster-tail splash when traveling quickly just below the water’s surface. This wildlife safari includes a stop on secluded Annette Island for a classic Alaskan meal of reindeer-sausage hot dogs, kettle chips and salmonberry jam. Leave room for a dessert of s’mores around a roaring bonfire. Chances are, there will be time for an enlightening trail walk through the island’s old-growth forest. You will be dropped off in downtown Ketchikan where you can explore and shop before hopping on a free shuttle back to the ship.
