Everything's better when wet! Rain made the ride soooo much dirtier (aka: better). The ride to the waterfall was fantastic, but the ride back down was fast and bumpy and splashy and we're so glad we picked this excursion. The rest of the cruise has a lot to live up to!

We had just recently gone up in a flight plane on the island with Tacquan and were quite eager to get back on the ground and check out the area. We had heard that this company was owned by the same guy who owns Tacquan air and were optimistic of a fantastic experience to match our time in the sky... More

Great for all ages my group 8-49. Beautiful views of the water and islands. We had two younger boys as our guides who made our ride enjoyable for everyone they even picked berries for us to eat. My parent's (69 & 72) couldn't fit on our tour so they went later in the day.

We did our adventure kart tour at a time when there hadn't been much rain, so it was very dusty, but still just as fun (if not more so!) The guides were awesome, and explained how to operate the karts so that even someone like myself who had never driven one could operate it. We had a great time, and... More

On an unusually dry, sunny day in Ketchikan, we drove the Adventure Karts with our guides Kyle and Mark. They were both very friendly and knowledgeable. We're sure this is a different experience in the mud & rain, but we enjoyed our day thoroughly. A little dust and dirt never hurt anyone. If it's dry, bring a bandana (or they... More

I'm not even sure where to begin...this is one of the best excursions we have ever taken. After a short instruction by your guide, getting the tour-supplied rain gear and helmets (very clean and smelled nice) your go to your karts. Our 11 year old son and I were in one kart and dad was in another. It had rained... More

I had an amazing time in Alaska doing the kart expedition. It's fast and fun and very rocky. The sights are nice and the tour guides Kyle and Keelan were funny and awsome. Will recommend and do again

We chose this adventure from our cruise ship. We had a great time! The guides, Kyle and Keylin were a couple of fun guys. I think they could have 'entertained' us better--but hey we were there to drive ATVs. The karts were easy to drive and lots of FUN! It hadn't rained in a couple of day so the trail... More

This was great fun for my boys age 17 and 14. They drove the kart ahead of my husband and I and did everything they could to get me muddy! It was great fun! We were supplied chest high waders and jackets and helmets which were all very clean. The roads were bumpy and full of potholes like a nice... More
