The scenery, wildlife but, most of all, the personnel who conducted our excursion, were knowledgeable, friendly and everything we hoped for! Highly recommend!

Cool! Excursion guide was a local which gave us an insight of daily life in the city of Ketchikan. He stopped to show us the salmon spawning in the local river. Ed Bean was an excellent tour guide! Loved the Rain forest tour. So green & Alive! Tour guides were amazing. Happy to see young folks pursuing their dreams and living to preserve the environment. We also toured the town a little and visited the cultural center with movies, artifacts and totem poles.

The winderness adventure and rainforest adventure was fun! it was pouring rain alot of the time ut they provided rain gear. The tour guide on the island was great, very informative. My only complaint would be that the bus was late to pick us up and take us back to the ship and we had to rush right back on the ship and had no time to look at shops for souvenirs. According to the time allotted, we should have had some extra time. It was nerve wracking as well as we were not sure if we would make it when we were sitting in traffic. other than that a great excursion!

My family of 5 enjoyed this excursion immensely. They all took time to explain things and to point out things that we normally wouldn't have paid attention to. Rainforest was easily to walk through.

this was fantastic. Cpt Bruce, Spice, Carley, and Joe were magnificent. Thank you so much for taking the time to let us see the 6 humpbacks whales and then get to watch them eat! The rainforest is beautiful. To be surrounded by so many trees - I still talk about this portion of my trip.

Loved this excursion! Although we were in the middle of a "drought" (8 days with no rain) it was beautiful and serene. Knowledgeable guide, great snack, and wonderful boat captain who stopped at just the right spot for us to enjoy a moment in the life of 2 bald eagles -- singing to each other, flying overhead, and just doing their thing looking majestic.

seeing all the little islands in a small boat gave us a much better appreciation of the area. Walking through the rainforest in it's pure state was like stepping back in time, the fresh air, soaring of the eagles and wonderful quiet, what a great experience, we also enjoyed the informative guide

My husband and I went on this excursion and we had the best time. It was so beautiful to see the forest and to see the eagles. If you are wondering on which excursion to go on, this one is far the best one...

Rainforest Excursion a Delight

Food and Drinks could be better, although the smoked salmon was nice

Boat ride fun. Captain pointed out interesting geologic facts and many bald eagles. Rainforest guide interesting but needs to be more knowledgeable of the environment. Was not able to answer pertinent questions. Overall, a fun day.

This was a great excursion for our first stop on shore. They were really friendly and helpful. The gal that met us was really nice. Leah? Sorry I don't remember exactly. John drove the boat and was great about stopping to see eagles and porpoises in the water. The hike was great with Kristen and she pointed out so many great things about this beautiful island. The hike was not too strenuous but super enjoyable.

Great despite the rain and cold.

It was a rainy and cold day. We thought the trip would be canceled but we were able to go anyway. Our group got to hold starfish and crabs. The island is a wonder to behold. The boat ride back was one wave after another but our crew was wonderful. We loved it so much! Almost a year later and we still talk about it.

This excursion lived up to it's promises. Our guide was excellent, she was very knowledgable about the rainforest, creatures (star fish and banana slugs in particular) and very pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk through the forest. The boat captain was also very skilled in finding eagles and made us feel comfortable and safe while in his boat.
An excursion we enjoyed

We had a great time. Our guide was well prepared. The walk through the rainforest was just right, the information offered very interesting. The food and beverages was perfect, salmon and excellent coffee. The float ride was really cool. We enjoyed it all. It's a tour we would definitely reccommend.
A great excursion on a beautiful island.
