|Rainforest Island Adventure
Eagles nests, marine life and a secluded beach in the rainforest!
A motorized rigid inflatable Seahawk provides a short, but exciting cruise along the coast of Clover Passage to a remote island in the Tongass National Forest. Whales, Stellar sea lions, harbor seals, porpoise, bald eagles and migrating seabirds may be spotted on this route.
Join an experienced Alaskan trail guide for a walk through natural, unspoiled beauty of this coastal rainforest. The trail takes you through a beautiful old growth forest, by way of a secluded beach. This mostly boardwalk path is about one-mile in length and well maintained.
Follow your knowledgeable guide through this ancient forest and learn about botanic species native to this region, such as the Western red and yellow cedars which Alaska native cultures have depended on for spiritual enrichment, shelter and transportation, and how the Sitka spruce was instrumental in the construction of Howard Hughes' famous "Spruce Goose" and other early vintage fighter planes.
After hiking this gently sloped historic trail, gather by the campfire to enjoy an Alaskan-style snack. Take some time to explore the natural beauty around you before reboarding the Seahawk for the return trip to Knudson Cove.
Bring your camera and binoculars!
