Ward Cove in a Sea Cycle

Sea cycling is a comfortable, hands free, fun adventure for all ages.

On this tour, you will be picked up from downtown Ketchikan, where the cruise ships arrive, to the float house facility in Ward Cove. It is about a 15-minute drive to Ward Cove. Upon arrival to the float house, you will gear up, in a group of no more than 12 guests, and you will be given a tutorial on how the sea cycles work. Life jackets and bottled water will be provided on the tour. There will be two adults per sea cycle on this Ketchikan cruise excursion. Children big enough to pedal may also pedal, or they can ride on a backseat.

This is a guided tour. Once everyone is on their sea cycles you will begin pedaling to a serene wildlife estuary. On this excursion, it is common to see seals, ducks and their ducklings, eagles, starfish, and during salmon runs, you may occasionally see bears.

Setting out with your local, expert guide, you will be in the middle of nature in no time. As you pedal along, your guide will share their love and knowledge of Alaska, including the tremendous history of Alaska's vital industries, culture, lifestyles, and abundant wildlife along its rich coastline.

You will then return to the float house where we will satisfy your appetite with a wonderful Alaskan-style snack which may include smoked salmon dip, cheese, crackers, fruit, cookies, coffee, hot chocolate, or tea. The total time on the Sea Cycle is approximately 1 hour 45 minutes. Guests will then be brought back downtown to the cruise ship docks.

Best day of our trip. Moon jelly fish at our feet, salmon and seals swimming by our side, bears in the wild and much more. Great exercise but we senior citizens did fine. Wonderful staff.

We had a beautiful sunny day to take our excursion. Vicki, the owner, met us on the pier not far from the ship. We drove a few miles to their dock which was located in a lovely cove. My husband and I were the only two for our tour, so instead of it being just 1 1/2 hours, it was 2 1/2 hours. Vicki gave us a lot of information about the local history and wildlife. We saw lots of eagles. We really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to anyone who is able to sit and do easy peddling.

My husband and I loved this excursion! From the minute our guide Vicki picked us up I new we picked the right excursion! Sea cycling took us to the most beautiful parts of Ketchikan! As we peddled through the waters we saw Seals, Bald Eagles, a black bear, we held large star fish and jellyfish. Through Vicki we learned so much about the wildlife in this area and so much more. We loved that she took pictures and she was able to pass those on to us. We just had the most amazing experience! Thank you Vicki !!

We were the lone participants on our excursion due to cancellations. The guide was personable and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed out time on the water. The seacycles were fun and easy to use. The provided photos were much better than we could have taken ourselves.

We had an absolute blast doing this excursion. We had a beautiful day in Ketchikan, the scenery was absolutely gorgeous and our guide was very informative. She pointed out all the wildlife that we saw and knew a lot of history about the area. I love that she took pictures of our family at a couple different locations. The eagle display at the end was incredible too. This is a family run tour and it was well run and organized. I would highly recommend this excursion!
