Your adventure begins with a narrated scenic coach ride to a secluded mountain lake. Upon arrival, you will receive a briefing and be outfitted with your equipment before boarding your Indian-style, 37-foot canoe. These canoes, which hold up to 20 passengers, are fast, stable, and easy to maneuver. Paddling under the direction of an experienced guide, scan the shore for wildlife and learn the unique natural and Indian history of the Ketchikan area. This beautiful lake which is part of a lush rain forest, is ideal for canoeing and is surrounded by the Tongass, the largest National Forest in the United States.

After approximately 1 hour of paddling, you will stop ashore for a native-style snack including smoked fish, clam chowder, rolls with wild berry jams and beverages. A knowledgeable guide will lead a short nature walk that will highlight the flora and fauna of the rain forest, including a carnivorous plant, the Sundew, which uses tentacles with an adhesive "dew" to ensnare small insects. Following your time ashore, you will reboard your canoe and paddle back to the canoe dock where your motor coach awaits to transfer you back to the cruise ship pier.

Please note: This tour involves approximately 90-minutes of canoeing and is recommended for guests in good physical condition. The tour is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair or those guests with mobility concerns. Weather appropriate clothing suited for the outdoors and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult parent or guardian. Minimum weight to participate is 40 lbs. in order to fit into the required life jacket. Each guest will be assigned a life jacket which must be worn throughout the marine portion of the tour. Only life jackets provided by the tour operator will be permitted for use on the tour. Raingear will be provided if necessary. Participants will be required to sign a liability waiver before being allowed to take part in the tour.
