    What to Expect
    Guests will load into a Blackbird Hovercraft and take a flight from Ketchikan to a remote beach on another island. Throughout the flight, the pilot and Tour Guide will explain how a hovercraft operates and what makes the vessel so unique. 
    Once the guests have pulled up onto the shore, they will get to enjoy the beach looking for wildlife, beach combing, and taking pictures of surrounding area. Opportunity for taking pictures with the hovercraft in a remote setting. 
    On the way back to the pier, the guests take a scenic coastal cruise around Pennock Island. The Tour Guide will give a narrated tour of the surrounding points of interest, wildlife, totem poles and much more.

    We did this trip in July, The crew of 2 were really great and really nice. The boat is clean and it was very comfortable. We had a really good time. I was hoping it would be a bit more exciting but it was fun.

    There really wasn't much noise at all. Very enjoyable. Our guide threw a fish in the water and an eagle swooped down and got it .. only about 15 feet from the boat!

    I don’t think so it’s like 8 wide. 6’ 6” height and 20-25 long and only 11-12 passenger All windows so you can see out. But there is no why to go outside while boat is moving.
