So we leave our cruise ship in Ketchikan on a rainy day and thankful that we are going to be on an enclosed boat...
We take a bus into a small marina that is a complete dump. Honestly Sanford and Son would nt step foot into this marina.
When we get on the boat it is evident that the owner has a huge need to update the inside and clean both the inside and outside. It smelled horrible and several of the seats were broken.
Once we set out it is evident that the captain loves his own voice. How much you ask? Most of what you hear is a recording of him and he adds in his own additional commentary.
Lets review some of what he talked about:
He talked about how he eats a high fiber diet and he goes to the bathroom everyday. He then asked how long we take to defecate. He then proceeded to go past dozens of homes and talk about each and every resident. He talked about one widow and likes to stand naked in her window. He the. Went by his doctor's house and informs us, again, that due to his high fiber diet and daily defecation he hasn't seen his doctor in years.
If that wasn't enough, he continued to add in constant comments with little sexual innuendos. As we were on the boat with our children, you could say it was innappropriate. Almost everyone in the lower cabin either rolled their eyes or talked about the innappropriateness of his incessant rambling.
Yes, the sights were nice, but it was ruined by an outdated, dirty boat and a captain that I can't explain any other way than he was really weird and totally hung up on his regular colon.
The kid working in the cabin rolled his eyes and said that everyone loves his humor.
Do the math of the number of guests on the boat and the number of trips each day during the season. He is making a ton of money providing a sub standard tour with a box of crackers, some sliced cheese and a can of salmon dip and powdered hot chocolate. His innappropriate rambling and filthy boat just confirms that this tour is overrated.
Yes he has many good reviews but trust me - after you take this tour you will be greatly disappointed!
