    Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. Your exclusive tour will start immediately at the cruise ship dock. There you will board a Blackbird Hovercraft and enjoy a narrated tour en route to a local beach. more...

    Experience one of the most unique adventures in Alaska! Your tour guide will describe the operations of this "air cushion vehicle", from the fully-enclosed and climate-controlled cabin as you fly 20-inches over water. The air cushion that the hovercraft rides on greatly reduces friction, allowing the vehicle to transition smoothly over the various surfaces. Since there are no propellers in the water, the vehicle has no impact on marine life, making this mode of transportation one of the most environmentally friendly available. Cruise right alongside the rocky shores and jagged islands, passing through Ketchikan's inlets and channels. Land on exclusive beaches that normal watercrafts cannot access as your hovercraft glides right on to untouched land. Comb the sands of the Tongass National Forest shoreline for unique flora and fauna on your own or with our experienced guides. On your way back to the dock have your camera ready and catch a glimpse of sunbathing seals or soaring eagles.
