Add To Plan

This brief tour gives you a great opportunity to experience Wrangell both from the water, and on foot. As you leave the ship, your guide will meet and escort you to your canoe, which will either be at the cruise ship dock or at Shakes House.

After receiving a short instructional safety briefing and signing a waiver, you will board your 17 ft. two-man canoe that is specially designed for the waters of Southeast Alaska. Your route will take you into Wrangell harbor where your guide will point out various fishing boats and their methods of fishing. After paddling by the only remaining covered boatyard in Alaska, you will stop at Shakes Tribal house where elaborately carved totem poles surround this traditionally built historical home of the Wrangell Tlingit Indians.

Disembarking your canoe, you will enjoy a tour of the home's interior while a local Tlingit describes some of the history of the tribe. Upon completion of this interesting tour of the home, you will take a guided walk through town on your way back to the ship.

Please note: The tour is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair or those guests with mobility concerns. While experience is not necessary, participants should be in good physical condition. It is recommended to dress warmly in layers and wear flat, closed-toe shoes. Rain gear, paddling equipment and life jackets are provided. There are no single canoes.
