My husband and I will be in Ketchikan on Sept 10 and are looking at booking the Alaska Coastal Expedition through Princess Cruise. On this excursion you "skipper" your own AMI inflatable boat. You go to the Saxman Native Village, ride past the Nichols Passage to look for whales, then to Mountain Point for a view of the falls, finally to George Inlet and Gem Cove to stop at beach for drink and snacks. I was wondering if this sounds like we would get to see a lot and if they have heard good things about the excursion. Or if there is anyone that has gone on this excursion and if so how they liked it. Any other ideas for Ketchikan would be appreciated. This is our first trip to Alaska and we are REALLY excited!!
