Juneau Ketchikan  
  Rain Forest Canoe Adventure & Nature Trail
A canoe adventure on a mountain lake!

The adventure begins with a scenic motorcoach tour to a secluded mountain lake, where you will board Indian-style 37-foot, 20 passenger canoes which are fast, stable, and easy to maneuver. Paddle under the direction of an experienced guide, scan the shore for wildlife and learn the unique natural and Indian history of the Ketchikan area. The lake, part of a lush rain forest, is ideal for canoeing and is surrounded by the Tongass, the largest National Forest in the United States.

Stop ashore for a native-style snack including smoked salmon, clam chowder, rolls with wild berry jams and beverages. A knowledgeable guide will lead a short nature walk highlighting the flora and fauna of the rain forest, including a carnivorous plant, the Sundew, which uses tentacles with an adhesive "dew" to ensnare small insects. Paddle back to the canoe dock and reboard your motorcoach that returns to the cruise ship pier.

This adventure is a rare opportunity to comfortably explore Southeast Alaska in the manner of its original explorers and early culture.

Tour Includes: Round-trip transfer to the mountain lake, two hours canoeing, which includes the guided nature walk, hearty snack consisting of clam chowder, rolls, jam, smoked salmon, crackers and mints,various beverages incuding juice, hot chocolate, coffee and water, a souvenir "I Canoed Ketchikan" pin. All participants are provided with raingear and life jackets. Souvenir T-shirts are available for purchase.

Customer Reviews:
It was fun. They took us to a beautiful lake up in the mountains. You are in a big canoe with about 10 other people and a guide. You paddle around the lake then stop and a short hike through the rain forest...the HUGE trees were amazing. ~ CruiseCritic Review
