While your ship is docked in Ketchikan, kayak around Eagle Island, part of Tongass National Forest, on this 3.5-hour guided shore excursion. Enter the protected waters of Clover Pass and as you paddle around the island, spot wildlife including bald eagles, seals, salmon, and perhaps even humpbacks and orcas. The tranquil waters provide a perfect opportunity for beginning kayakers and the more experienced alike to enjoy the Alaskan wilderness.
What to Expect
Don’t miss this chance to explore Ketchikan’s natural beauty while your ship is docked. After port pickup by van, your guide takes you to the launch site in Clover Pass, where you’ll receive a safety briefing for your kayaking adventure. The gentle currents give first-time paddlers and those with more experience a great opportunity to enjoy the Alaskan scenery.

Hop into your tandem kayak and set off after your guide toward Eagle Island, part of Tongass National Forest. As you make your way around the island, see seals swimming nearby, salmon leaping into the air and eagles swooping high above. You may even spot humpbacks and orcas in the area.

At the end of your kayaking, return to the launch site, where your minivan awaits to transport you back to Ketchikan port.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:

We will ensure your timely return back to the ship in Ketchikan for this activity. If your ship is delayed and you are unable attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Great experience if you like to kayak, animals don't have schedule appearances

It is what it sounds like. A relaxing kayak experience in Alaska. We had amazing sunny weather and I'm not sure if that's normal. If you're into wildlife it's kind of hit or miss. At the very least, you'll pass an island with a huge...More
