Tour Details

Experience the fascinating city of Ketchikan in the most unique way by land and by water thanks to an amphibian, state-of-the-art vehicle that will take you through the rustic streets and salty waters of Ketchikan.

This Coast Guard inspected and certified vehicle doubles as both a bus and a boat and is Alaska's only duck tour. Hop onboard the "Duck" with your licensed Captain to see the salmon ladder on Ketchikan Creek and the flower-filled sanctuary of Whale Park with its antique clock. You will also learn about Historic Ketchikan's colorful past as you visit Creek Street.

After touring the cultural and historical sites, leave the land behind and make a splash as you literally ride into the harbor at Tongass Narrows! Cut through the water on the modern state of the art Hydra-Terra vessel, with revolutionary positive buoyancy foam-filled compartments, designed and patented to stay afloat even with the drain plugs removed and the full engine room flooded.

Survey the local fishing fleet, fishing canneries, seaplane docks and much more along Ketchikan's waterfront community. Throughout the tour your guide will entertain you with fascinating facts and fun stories about the history and people of this southernmost city in Alaska.

This amphibious tour is the most fun and convenient way to see the best Ketchikan has to offer, sign up for this popular tour today not to miss out.

Riding an amphibian for the first time was the thrill. The tour guide knows his craft as he explained historical background of the place. The tour Captain was funny. Highly recommended!

Reviewer: Barbara Robinson
For the price, this excursion was a lot of fun. We enjoyed the fact that the mode of transportation also went into the water and we got to see several eagles. The little gal who narrated the tour was knowledgeable and cute and did a good job of informing us about the area of Ketchikan.

Great way to tour Ketchikan and view the town from the harbor. We were fortunate enough to see many bald eagles as we left the port. Our narrator, a high school junior, was a great communicator and made the tour fun and informative.
