The adventure begins with a scenic motor coach tour to a secluded mountain lake, where you will board an Indian-style 37-foot, 20 passenger canoe which is fast, stable, and easy to maneuver.


Paddle under the direction of an experienced guide, scan the shore for wildlife and learn the unique natural Indian history of the Ketchikan area.

 The lake, part of a lush rain forest, is ideal for canoeing and is surrounded by the Tongass, the largest national forest in the United States.

Stop ashore for a native-style snack including smoked salmon, clam chowder, buns with wild berry jams and beverages. A knowledgeable guide will lead a short nature walk highlighting 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. Paddle back to the canoe dock and re-board your motor coach that returns to the cruise ship pier.

This adventure is a rare opportunity to comfortably explore Southeast Alaska in the manner of its original explorers and early culture.

Tour Includes:

  • Round trip transfer from dock or hotel
  • Rain gear and life jackets
  • Native-style snack and beverages
  • Souvenir "I Canoed Ketchikan" pin
