Add To Plan

Discover the diverse flora, fauna and history of the world's largest temperate rainforest during this memorable hike in the Tongass National Forest.

This tour has been recommended by Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society based on its philosophy that guided experiences in nature should inspire people, young and old, to act responsibly for the protection of our planet's vital ecosystems.

Depart the pier for the transfer to the Starrigavan Trailhead. The trail climbs to and crosses a muskeg area, then descends to the Starrigavan Estuary. From here, you will take a guided walking tour to Starrigavan Creek, a seasonal spawning ground for salmon.

Next, you will reach a boardwalk, then proceed to a viewing area overlooking the estuary. The second half of your tour will commence along the trailhead and into the headlands before descending to Mosquito Cove, a small cove on the ocean.

Following your visit at Mosquito Cove, you will continue on the loop, return to the Starrigavan Trailhead pick-up spot and reboard your bus for the return drive to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes a potential 4-mile hike. Each group sets their pace and may hike 2-4 miles. The hike inlcudes some steep climbing over uneven surfaces. Additionally, the hike gains some elevation, approximately 300 feet at the highest point, but is mostly along a level maintained boardwalk and gravel path. This tour is recommended for guests in good physical condition. This non-smoking tour operates in all weather conditions. A rain poncho will be provided (if needed). The minimum age to participate on this tour is ten years old; children must be accompanied by a parent. Guests are advised to wear comfortable clothing with hiking shoes or boots.
