The ride was scenic but unremarkable.
Sail Date: June 2018
The ride was scenic but unremarkable. Mostly, you got to see the shoreline with all the homes (and a couple of eagles). Water tended to be choppy and one of us almost got a bit seasick. Narrator was humorous and informative.

In Ketchikan, we took the Lighthouse, Totems and Eagles Tour (by boat). The tour guides were really very good, helpful and friendly. Hot beverages, sodas and light snacks were included. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and we did not see the lighthouse because of high swells. Certainly a disappointment, but the Captain was right in considering the safety of his passengers first. Read Less

May have just been poor timing, but didn't see a whole lot of eagles on this 3 hour boat ride. The excursion was advertised as a heated interior and open deck, thankfully we had great weather, because there was no heat on this boat.
