About Ketchikan Outdoors
Board a 14-foot inflatable boat to explore one of the most beautiful places in the Southeast Alaska Inside Passage. Feel, smell, and get up close and personal with the rugged Southeast Alaska coastlines that you marvel at from a distance on your cruise ship. As an added bonus, you may see seals, whales, sea lions, and maybe even a bald eagle on your voyage. Parties of four have their own boat (one passenger must be 25 or over to drive). Parties of two or three share with other guests. Our Zodiac Adventure is located in Saxman Native Village, which gets us out in the wild fast and allows more time on the water. We provide all necessary gear to keep you warm and dry; just make sure you wear comfortable, appropriate outdoor wear. Gear provided includes rain gear, boots, face masks, gloves, PFDs, dry bags, and safety glasses. This expedition takes place in Alaskan coastal waters, not calm lakes, ponds, or rivers. Expect the water to be rough! Anyone over 350 pounds, pregnant, elderly,

This was a fun and fantastic experience. We got to see eagles, whales, seals and great scenery. Everyone in our group was stoked and had fun. Probably the highlight for me on the Alaska holiday out of the tours.
