This was an easy walk thru the rainforest. Our guide Anna was great. She was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. We saw lots of eagles. No bears, but bear tracks. It was a very enjoyable excursion.

A nice tour, but just a small private forest park near Ketchikan. Mostly a botanical tour, nice guides with a tour that ends at an old sawmill, totem area and raptor center.

We did the rainforest sanctuary walk and the crab feast. The walk was beyond expectation as we saw over 20 eagles, some of which landed less than 15 feet from us. We also were lucky enough to see a couple of bears. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable as well. Highly recommended.

The tour through the rainforest was casual... not strenuous, but highly informative. Learned all about salmonberry, devil's club, spruce and cedar trees and the moss that grows on them. Toured the carvers and raptor center too. The raptor caretakers were so passionate about the birds.

Great little hike. Pace was relaxed and pleasant. The guide Becca was absolutely adorable and loved her job. Her enthusiasm was contagious. Her knowledge of the grounds was wonderful. We were able to see deer, bear, and eagles on our hike. We also saw up close rescue birds as an added attraction. Feeding of the reindeer was worth the trip.... More
