Get behind the wheel of a motorized Zodiac boat and take off on an exhilarating adventure through the George Inlet Fjord.
Enjoy a scenic drive through historic downtown Ketchikan, past the totem poles of Saxman Native Village, and along the beautiful coastline of the Tongass Narrows. At the Beaver Falls Salmon Cannery. Walk a rain forest trail to cannery, where you’ll don rain gear, rubber boots and a life jacket and review the safety components of the zodiac motor-crafts. Board the four- and six-seater vessels and follow the lead guide caravan style as you steer yourself on a route tailored to the day’s conditions. This region is filled with mountainous terrain, lush forest, and pristine scenery. Your guide will share the rich stories of the loggers from the timber years, and from the nearby fishing camps. From the natural sounds of the flowing waterfalls to the hidden coves, keep your eyes open for active wildlife including bald eagles, harbor seals, Sitka black-tail deer, black bears, and salmon streams. Routes may vary upon the tide levels but can include a zip up to the mouth of Mahoney Glacial Cirque, Mahoney Asche Mine, Coon Cove, and White River Cove. After cruising for 90 minutes, return to the cannery for a flight of locally crafted beers, warm drinks and a snack of cheese and reindeer sausage before return to the ship.
