Join your Alaskan captain and their crew to explore Southeast Alaska’s coastal history, native culture, and natural beauty as you journey into Ketchikan’s wild seascape on a wildlife-viewing cruise, with guaranteed sightings of American bald eagles. We’re proud of our home, and we can’t wait to share it with you! Discover the beauty of the Tongass National Forest, the world’s largest temperate rainforest, and learn about Alaska's interconnected ecosystems and the animals that call this region home. Enjoy the stunning water views of Totem Bight State Park, home to an Alaska Native clan house and a collection of 14 towering Tlingit and Haida hand-carved, cedar totem poles. Marvel with us at the panoramic, mountainous seascape surrounding Guard Island, while you photograph the first lighthouse to be built in Alaska, completed in 1904 and still in operation today. Sip a hot chocolate and keep on the lookout for harbor seals, moon jellyfish, pigeon guillemots, deer, blue heron, whales, and other wildlife. A complimentary snack of local Alaskan hor d'oeuvres, including our signature smoked salmon dip, will be served while underway.
