Add To Plan

Join an experienced Alaskan trail guide for a walk through the natural, unspoiled beauty of a coastal rain forest found on a remote island in the Tongass National Forest.

Boarding your coach at the pier, it's a 30-minute transfer to the dock at Knudson Cove where you will board your Seahawk boat and set-off on a sightseeing journey while en route to your secluded island. Upon arrival, your knowledgeable guide will lead you through the ancient forest where you will learn about the botanic species native to this region, like Western red cedar and yellow cedar that early Natives were so dependent upon for spiritual enrichment, shelter and transportation. You will also hear how Sitka spruce was instrumental in the construction of Howard Hughes' famous "Spruce Goose" and other early vintage fighter planes. The well-maintained trail takes you through a beautiful old growth forest, by way of a secluded beach and is mostly boardwalk.

After an enjoyable hike over this gently sloped historic trail, you will stop for a break to enjoy and be treated to an Alaskan-style snack. Before heading back to your Seahawk, you'll have some free time to explore the natural beauty around you.

The return cruise back to the Knudson Cove and your waiting motor coach gives you another opportunity to perhaps spot some whales, Stellar sea lions, harbor seals, porpoise, bald eagles and other migrating seabirds. Be sure to bring your camera and binoculars on this excursion!
