Capt Rob and his crew were great.

Capt Rob and his crew were great. First of all, why would anyone want to book a cruise excursion while on a cruise. I found out why. They can bring you up close to what the large ships can't. We went to the Totem pole, saw Harper ... Read More
Capt Rob and his crew were great. First of all, why would anyone want to book a cruise excursion while on a cruise. I found out why. They can bring you up close to what the large ships can't. We went to the Totem pole, saw Harper Seals and the little light house. The experience was not to see the light house but to get the colorful history behind the area of Ketchikan and they delivered. We got the stories you can't find in books. The bowling ball house was a good one. He will send you videos of the whales if you ask. We didn't see any our trip but a week before they were bubble feeding. Very friendly. Read Less

Very interesting tour of the town before you get to the boat. Boat mid sized so not overly crowded. Lots of eagles and nest, not to many totem poles and only 1 small lighthouse. I'm from South Jersey so I was expecting some real ... Read More
Very interesting tour of the town before you get to the boat. Boat mid sized so not overly crowded. Lots of eagles and nest, not to many totem poles and only 1 small lighthouse. I'm from South Jersey so I was expecting some real lighthouses. Nice quiet tour, met some nice people and really enjoyed the fresh salmon dip they served. Read Less

If you love low key tours with a friendly staff, this is the excursion for you. We left our ship, the Ruby Princess, and drove to a small bay. Capt Rob welcomed us aboard, inviting us to either go below board to a warm cabin with big windows, or to the top, open deck. We went up! It was a chilly morning and just as we were wishing for a warm drink, the crew brought around complementary drinks! A pair of high quality binoculars paired with fun, perfect descriptions of where to spot Eagles made it easy to be amazed by this magnificent bird. A house decorated with bowling balls, the totems poles all came with informative descriptions. Just as a thought would be forming...wouldn't it be great to get everyone in a photo....a crew member would be there to take photos with our cameras. The crew seemed to have a 6th sense and anticipate our needs before they were fully formed. We cruised by the lighthouse, saw lots of seals and sea life, imagined what it must have been like to live in such a remote area. Capt Rob and crew were fun, informative, and attentive. Capt Rob let us sit in the Captain's seat for a photo op. And just as we were thinking about being a little hungry, salmon spread--complete with recipe-- was passed around. Yum! As we cruised back to Ketchikan, the clouds lifted and the sun came out. It was so wonderfully peaceful and enjoyable. A real commune with nature with gracious and fun crew members. Read Less

DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY! We booked this tour on the cruise. I would rather went to do anything else then this lame tour. The Captian of this boat who thought his lame jokes were funny and kept telling them , which was worst. If I wanted a talk about the homes on the shore line , it would of been great. He got short and sarcastic when we didn't see the eagles and their nest right of the bat. totems were ok and the one light was a light house. Read Less

This was a GREAT tour!We are driven a short distance from the ship to a double deck boat to tour the habour. Wow!! We saw a LOT of bald eagles and the captain/guide was very knowledgeable. The 2 guys who assisted could not have been nicer or more helpful. We saw a black bear cub (going after trash, of course!) and seals. This was just a bay/harbour tour, but was very nice and complete.EVERYONE on the boat enjoyed Totem, the captain's puppy. "Please don't feed my dog" (as though that was going to happen!). There were two dogs: Totem and another pup and they went from person to person to get a pet. The dogs added a LOT to the at home, friendliness feeling that we all got.I highly recommend this tour.
