After transferring from your Ketchikan cruise ship pier to the Jeep excursion base camp approximately 20 minutes away, you will be paired with traveling companions in small groups of four, and begin the adventure into the mountainous roads of the Tongass National Forest. All jeeps are automatic drive too!
The route takes you through Alaska lush rain forest, and up mountain roads to view beautiful scenery. Using a two-way radio, your group leader and jeep excursion guide will provide you with interesting and informative commentary along the way. You will also be able to interact with the guide and other jeeps with your CB radio. Learn about the timber industry's reforestation methods while driving through old as well as new growth forests. Excursion stops are made for some fantastic views, photo opportunities and an opportunity to change drivers if you wish. Total time with the jeeps is approximately 90 minutes.
The Jeep portion of your Ketchikan Jeep and Canoe Cruise Excursion ends at Lake Harriet Hunt. Here, you will board your large, easy to paddle, guided canoe, and experience a unique Alaska and Ketchikan ecosystem from the water. After your approximately 40 minutes of paddling, you will meet your expert safari shore excursion guide on the other side of the lake for a 20 minute nature walk through an old-growth forest to a remote camp where you will stop for an Alaskan snack for 15 minutes. Then, return to the safari excursion base camp where your transportation will be waiting to take you on the 30 minute drive back to Ketchikan and your cruise ship terminal. Bring your camera and a driver's license on this unique Ketchikan Cruise Shore Excursion by Jeep and Canoe!
Incredible scenery! As the tour Guide told us, we were lucky to get a bright sunny day after a long rainy week in Ketchikan. This is a remarkable experience, starting by the fantastic customer service booking online, great tour guides, transportation was on a terrific condition. The jeep driving was fun and the scenery was spectacular. It is not a rough off road experience, though. Bumpy yes, but extreme no.
Our favorite part was the canoe, get the chance to gather all the family in just one. Thank you!!!
