After being picked up at your Ketchikan cruise ship pier, you will transfer to the Zodiac boat cruise excursion base, approximately 5 minutes away, where you will receive rain gear, boots, face masks, gloves, PFDs, dry bags and safety glasses. After a short briefing you will be ready to head out on the water with those easy to handle, inflatable Zodiac adventure boats!

Your 14-foot inflatable boat holds four excursion guests each. Parties of four will have their own Zodiac boat (one must be 25 years old or over to drive); parties of two or three will share zodiacs with other guests (drivers can alternate several times throughout this Zodiac Shore Excursion from Ketchikan).

Set out for 2 hours to explore one of the most beautiful places in the SE Alaska Inside Passage. Throughout this nearly 25-mile coastal expedition excursion, your Zodiac excursion guide in the lead boat will offer narrative covering the area's history, geology, culture and ecology (via boat's radio). You will look for wildlife along the shores, adventure out into large bodies of waters searching for whales, seals, sea lions, or whatever swims by. You may even catch a glimpse of some the commercial crabbing vessels featured on the Discovery Channels Deadliest Catch!

This Ketchikan Back Country Zodiac Wildlife Adventure Excursion takes place in Alaskan coastal waters, not on calm lakes. Chances are it will be bumpy.

Navigating your Zodiac boat through coves and inlets around Blank Island, you will view the tranquil cove of an old gold mine and visit a seal rookery. Before you return to the dock, you will make a brief stop in front of historic Creek Street to learn of its wild history. The tide will dictate how close you can get.

After you dock your Zodiac excursion boat, warm up with a hot beverage. You will then have the option to transfer back to your ship in Ketchikan, or enjoy a brief stroll back to your cruise ship through town.

Driving the zodiac boat was awesome, I didn't have any experience, but the guide taught us how to do it, they were very professional and we felt safe during the whole tour, The equipment is top of the line and the boats look well maintained. This was so much better than sitting on a bus with a bunch of other people. We got out and experienced Alaska. The narration was entertained and you can tell the guides are real experts on the field.
