Lighthouse, Totems & Eagles Excursions Day Tours

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Lighthouse, Totems, and Eagles Excursion is a 3-hour expedition (dock-to-dock). Our dock representative or van driver greets the passengers as they get off of their ship and guides them to their transportation. After a short, narrated bus or van ride out to our rustic Ward Cove location, guests board one of our 45 passenger vessels (either the M/V Totem Princess or the M/V Lighthouse Endeavor) to embark on an interactive, educational, and entertaining voyage to Guard Island Lighthouse and back. Notable locations along the tour route include the historic site of the Ward Cove Pulp Mill, Ward Cove Packing Company, Refuge Cove and its outlying islands, Totem Bight State Park, Guard Island Lighthouse, and Vallenar Rocks Wildlife Viewing area. Our primary wildlife viewing is eagles and their nests, but sightings also include seals, sea lions, blue heron and other seabirds, and even humpback and orca whales. We follow a circuitous route, which ensures there is no redundancy in scenery.

Had a great time with the crew, the tour was a lot of fun with plenty of photo ops of Eagles and other wild life not to mention the wonder snack and coffee provided. Would go back to Alaska just for this tour again.

The views were nice and seeing Eagles were great but the captain is too colorful for a family outing. Adults ONLY unless you want to explain some very "colorful" statements to young ones.

A very nice boat ride with humorous captain, who gives a great tour from beginning to end. Lots of eagles, seals, salmon, and guided tour of waterfront homes along the way. Even seen an abandoned housing project and factory. Very informative and relaxing. Don't miss the railroad tracks on lighthouse island!!!

This is very scenic. If you can't find the eagles nest they will help you. The tour guide was knowledgeable and inserted humor every now and then. There are two options you can either stay on the inside where it is temperature controlled or you can go to the top deck. The top deck is the best for photo opportunities but it is cold. I had several layers and it was still chilly.
