TOTEM BIGHT AND CITY TOUR INFORMATION  
  Totem Bight provides the prettiest setting for totem poles that we have seen. This trip will take you to the outskirts of Ketchikan, as Totem Bight is a lovely 15 minutes from downtown. It was originally the site of a traditional fishing camp and has proven to be a peaceful spot on the edge of Tongass Narrows. The short walk through the woods to the location of the totems provides both an aesthetic and educational experience. Your guides will familiarize you with the botanical examples of North Pacific coast greens which flourish here.

The totems themselves are not as old as those found at Saxman Native Village Totem Pole Park but the totems are beautiful, with excellent interpretive signs, printed guides, and a small clan house on site. Tastes of hot chocolate and smoked salmon will be offered before you head back to town.

Your tour of Ketchikan itself will provide much of the background. You will find interesting the current status of Ketchikan and its future. You will drive past the Fish Hatchery and the Totem Heritage Center and from June-September, will stop at the fish ladder. You may choose to be dropped off on Creek Street, where you can explore the shops on your own later and take the funicular up Cape Fox Hill. Now that is something you can't do just anywhere. You will also receive a ticket to Dolly's House Museum (a $4.00 value), once the most famous brothel in town. Or if you prefer to skip Creek Street, you will be returned to the cruise pier.

  A real adventure to a far-a-way island....by land and sea! This tour proves to be a combination of sorts, as you begin at the harbor with a tour by inflatable boat of the shoreline and its inhabitants. While cruising along, you will have the opportunity to see whales, sea lions, porpoises, seals, and a host of birds including our famous bald eagle - that is, if they are cooperating. Regardless, your guides will educate you on life along the shore, which is part of the food chain in Alaska.

You will leave your inflatable raft on the beach and begin a wonderful hike into the temperate coastal rainforest. Your guide has been here so frequently that even the slightest change in the scenery will catch his eye. He will be able to point out vegetation and flowers that are unique to this area, and the purpose they have served.

This is informative in a fun way and all ages can enjoy each facet of this tour.

You will be navigating the old logging roads in the rain forest of the Tongass. The Tongass National Forest is a forest of lots of islands, trees, and animals. It's a place where eagles are commonplace and deers think they own the road.

You'll drive through dense forest and wooden trails. It is a glimmering rain forest full of glaciers, spectacular scenery, mountains, waterways, and thousands of islands separated by straits and channels. But, it is the size of New Jersey, so don't expect to see it all!

Your tour will lead you to an alpine lake, where a huge canoe will be waiting to take you further. Exploring the surface of the water and the shoreline will add another dimension to this, especially as the canoe itself is an experience. these canoes hold up to 20 people, allowing 16 to handle the rowing around the lake.

Along with a short, easy hike, this tour is an exceptional way to get to know Alaska.

KETCHIKAN DOUBLE-DECKER CITY AND SAXMAN TOTEM VILLAGE TOUR  
  You need to take the time to explore this charming city, but this will help you get your bearings.  These double-decker buses are perfect for a city known as one of the rainiest places in Alaska. Weather will determine if you wish to be on top or comfortably dry below. Either way, you will have a great view and clear narration of Ketchikan's colorful history as you pass through its charming streets.

Much of Ketchikan is built on fill, on pilings over the water, or on hillsides with steep winding ramps for streets. We felt it the most charming of all the towns we saw in Alaska as it's success hasn't overshadowed it's reality, a great fishing and logging town.

You’ll explore the famous Ketchikan waterfront including Creek Street, the former historic Red Light district. Watch as salmon head up the fish ladder and struggle through the current to spawn.

You will also visit the famed Saxman Village, which is crowded with about two-dozen totem poles. They were moved here from there original sites in the 30's and have been restored by native carvers. Your guide will be able to give you great insight into the background of the tribes and the ritual of carving. No trip to Ketchikan can be complete without visiting the Saxman Totem Village. This is Alaska’s only totem park with 29 authentic totems carved by Tlingit and Haida natives.

This trip is fully escorted from the cruise ship pier.

30 MINUTE SEAPLANE SPECTACULAR INFORMATION  
  You'll tickle the treetops on this 30 minute flight.  Alaska's Inside Passage of Southeast Alaska is home to some of the most breathtaking scenery on earth. One of its jewels is the majestic Misty Fjords National Monument. Carved by glaciers long ago, snow capped, sheer granite cliffs rise dramatically 3,500 out of the sea, ribbonned with waterfalls plummeting sensationally thousands of feet. Completely roadless and consisting of 2.2 million acres, an area larger than Yellowstone makes a seaplane tour the only way to comfortably experience the many different levels within the deep, narrow fjords.
You will note, whether you arrive by land or cruise ship, that the downtown of Ketchikan is drawfed in summer by the white wall of the ships in port. This is not what you came to see in Alaska. Rather, the wilderness is your goal. Your trip to the Misty Fjords will take you away from crowds and will amaze you with its extreme beauty as well as its close proximity to the urban life of Ketchikan.

Upon arrival at our seaplane base, you will be greeted by your pilot who will personally assist you aboard your aircraft. After takeoff the flight will pass through Ketchikan airspace enroute to the Misty Fjords.

The flight path will take you over the vast expanse of Revillagegedo
Island and the Tongass National Forest. We cross the East Behm canal into the Misty Fjords Monument on the mainland panhandle of Alaska.

During the flight you'll have the opportunity to spot a variety of
wildlife in their natural environment. The highlight of this excursion will be landing on a remote wilderness lake in the heart of the monument. Although you land on the water, your pilot will assist everyone to shore where you’ll have some time to breathe the fresh air and take in the awe inspiring scenery.

The incredible 17 million acre Tongass National Forest and the spectacular 2.2 million acre Misty Fjord National Monument - a wilderness of untouched landscape will take your breath away. You'll see massive rock formations and cliffs over 3,000 feet high adorned with ribbons of cascading waterfalls pouring into many beautiful lakes and saltwater fjords.

You will enjoy these luxury seaplanes, specially modified for flightseeing, with picture window seating for every passenger. An onboard audio entertainment system includes headsets that have noise-cancelling to block out engine sounds and also feature voice activated microphones for verbal communications with the pilot and fellow passengers. Your pilot, rather than a recorded message, will provide full narration on your trip.
I promise you won't know which direction to look at first. Our heads were darting back and forth as if we were watching a tennis match.

Beautiful fun trip! Great way to start a vacation and see the area. Great pilot who was knowledgable about the area. Excellent landing! Fantastic!
8/4/2004 Ketchikan G. Tucker
The misty fjords executive sightseeing tour was by far the highlight of our trip to Ketchikan, Alaska. I highly recommend shoretrips they were very accommadating. Thanks again!
ALASKA E. Speed
The Misty Fjord's ShoreTrip was outstanding!! The price was worth it, the pilot was great, and the plane was super. We had no problems finding the guide. This was a triple AAA experience!! We would all do it again.
Thanks for your help. In the future we will use ShoreTrips for all the excursions instead of just this one. Our salmon bake from the ship was terrible!!
ALASKA T. Bass
The ShoreTrip was great; it was definately the highlight of our Alaska trip. There were two things that made our ShoreTrip special: We did not have to see nature with 500+ of our closest shipmates and the guides who lead the excursions were terrific. David and his son with Misty Fjords Float Planes were outstanding!! I have given your name to a few people who are planning the same trip either this year or next summer. Thanks again for great recommendations. I plan on recommending your service as much as possible.
7/24/2003 ALASKA C. Stern
This was far and away the best trip I took!! The pilot was great and the scenery was awesome! This was an outstanding trip well worth the price.

SEAPLANE TOUR ... MISTY FJORDS INFORMATION  
  The best way to see this 2.3-million acre piece of pristine wilderness is by floatplane.  This tour is longer than the cruise ship tours.
The Misty Fjords National Monument has been carved to impressive perfection by millions of years of glacial activity - on this popular air tour, it will take you only the blink of an eye to appreciate nature's handiwork.
The Misty Fjords National Monument offers everything that "means" Alaska. The only way to take in the true majesty of this pristine wilderness is by floatplane. It's soaring cliffs, saw-tooth ridges blanketed in trademarks mists, sky-blue lakes, endless waterfalls, icy saltwater fjords and miles of glacier-carved gorges cannot be appreciated any other way.

And, while you take in the enormity of the Misty Fjords National Monument from above, your pilot will be busy checking for wildlife below, a closer look at creatures big and small, from burly brown bears to agile mountain goats and from harbor seals to humpback whales.

You also arranged a Ketchikan tour of Misty Fiords. This was exceptional value. The 'wow' factor was high and the safety factor was carefully addressed by a very well experienced pilot. We rate this tour 10/10 and recommend it to anyone taking an Alaskan cruise.

FLY FISHING...FLY IN WITH GUIDE INFORMATION  
  The fly fishing is spectacular in the cold, fresh water lakes that only a float plane can find. The best way to fish these lakes is by using individual pontoon boats. They are 7 feet in length and very easy to manuver.

We'll fly you up from Ketchikan to where the fish are biting. Our float plane will get you into the wilderness within 20 minutes or so... and we'll have you suited up in waders and on the water within minutes. All necessary equipment will be provided but you are welcome to bring any of your own rods or flies.

We'll also provide water and food.

KETCHIKAN MOUNTAIN LAKE CANOE TOUR INFORMATION  
  Can you imagine a canoe that seats 20 people? You won't have to if you book this tour! Even the ride to Harriet Hunt Lake will be fun, as you see this charmingly rustic town and its outskirts as you travel. Of course, your guides will make certain you hear the true tales and legends of colorful Ketchikan as you move along into the huge national park to enjoy your canoe trip.

The canoe itself is an Indian-style canoe and holds up to 20 people, with 16 of them paddling. As you paddle around the lake, you will hear a different tune from your guide, one of native history and nature. These two forces have combined in Alaska to forge the true Alaskan legacy.

After your canoe ride, you will really get a sense of a camping experience as you gather round and in the geodesic dome set up for your comfort. Enjoy a snack of smoked salmon and clam chowder while you listen to information about some of the carnivorous vegetation growing around you.

Back to town to explore, on your own, the ins and outs of Creek Street.

SNORKELING IN KETCHIKAN?? INFORMATION  
  Don't worry, your wetsuit will keep you warm.  You never thought about snorkeling in Alaska? Neither did I, but people do it all the time. There's a whole other world waiting to be seen in the waters of Ketchikan.

Of course, with summer water temperatures from the 55 - 62 degrees, you'll need a little extra protection from the cold, so after being picked up at the pier, you will drive to the dive shop to be fitted for your wetsuit. Then it's off to the snorkel area, a secluded spot, where you'll enter the water from the shore. A mix of sand and rock at the water's edge, it's a gradual slope into the water that will be easy for you to navigate. The deepest you'll go is about 12' deep.

With your mask in the water, you will be treated to the sight of many types of invertebrates, including fish, starfish and hermit crabs. You'll also see kelp grass and orange algae. If you're lucky, you might even spot a dungeness crab.
    Departures (Local Island Time):  08:00 AM (3.5 hrs)  10:00 AM (3.5 hrs)  12:00 PM (3.5 hrs)  
    Pricing:  Per Person: $94.00 USD (Inlcudes all taxes)  
 
SCUBA...1T - 2T DIVE (DEPENDING ON TIME IN PORT) FOR CERTIFIED DIVERS  
  You've dived the Caribbean, now do the North Pacific.  This is a dive for those hardy souls who like to experience the unusual. Your shore dive site will be chosen depending on tide and and water conditions. One popular site is Sunset Beach. If you are an advanced diver, you might dive Mountain Point with it's 80 foot wall.

You will be outfitted with 6.5 mm two-piece wetsuits, 6.5 mm hood, boots and gloves. Your dive will be from a gentle sandy slope to more rocky terrain the equivalent of two flights of stairs. You must have the physical ability to navigate the shore wearing from 60-90 pounds of gear. In addition to your suit, B.C.D. and tanks, be prepared to carry from 18-40 pounds of lead.
    Departures (Local Island Time):  08:00 AM (4.5 hrs)  10:00 AM (4.5 hrs)  12:00 PM (4.5 hrs)

KETCHIKAN KAYAK PADDLE TO PENNOCK ISLAND INFORMATION  
  The coastline here lends itself superbly to kayaking, even if you have never done it before.  Pennock Paddling Adventure explores the wilderness, wildlife and historic waterfront of Ketchikan by kayak. Watch for leaping salmon, seals and whales as we paddle through islands in the Tongass National Forest. We visit an active bald eagle's nest and a salmon spawning stream.

Your departure on this tour will be immediately after receiving your basic instructions for these user-friendly kayaks. Your object is to island-hop, traveling in the protected waters around Pennock, Snow, and Gravina Islands. There is a comfort level to this route as you paddle along the shoreline, sometimes gliding under huge branches stretching out over the water's edge.

You should keep your camera handy, as the salmon will leap out of the water around the kayaks, tempting a hungry eagle. Salmon, you soon learn, are the treasure of the summer, attracting the wildlife and, therefore, your attention.

You will need no experience for this trip. The company has both double and triple kayaks available so your children can enjoy this tour as well. Center pods separate the paddlers on these fiberglass kayaks so the travelers do not have to paddle in sync. Dry bags are supplied to protect your valuables and raingear from any inclement weather. Children will enjoy both the use of binoculars and hydrophones to capture wildlife with both eyes and ears.

This is a very interactive trip. Surprisingly, jellyfish and starfish populate the waters. The end of the tour will take you along the historic waterfront of Ketchikan and, if the traffic will bear, also up Creek Street. The guides will make that decision.
 
    Departures (Local Island Time):  07:30 AM (2.5 hrs)  08:30 AM (2.5 hrs)  10:30 AM (2.5 hrs)  01:30 PM (2.5 hrs)  02:30 PM (2.5 hrs)  
    Pricing:  Per Person: $84.00 USD Child: $62.00 USD (Ages 6-12 years)  
 
ORCA'S COVE KAYAK IN KETCHIKAN INFORMATION  
  This popular tour was designed for people looking for the wilderness, but not too far away. The first leg of your journey will be by boat, about a 20-minute ride. You will then transfer to land and receive a friendly greeting from your guides, who will give some basic instructions. Once comfortable, you will set out in your kayaks. The kayaks you are using have a center pod, which makes it unnecessary for the two travelers to paddle in sync. You will find it easy and, if you do this without a partner, the guides will find you one - perhaps even one of the guides!

Before long, you will feel comfortable looking around you at the wildlife, forgetting you are even in a kayak. Now you can observe the wonders of Alaska, with looming mountains and rainforest growth that comes right up to the shoreline.

The guides will know the action here, and will show you the Bald Eagle nesting sites that are active. River otters, Black Tail Deer, and even bear can often be observed during your kayak trip, most likely mid to late summer. Sea lions, Orcas, and Humpback whales often play a role in your stay on the water. The key to wildlife in Alaska is to find the fish, the source of life for these creatures. The upwelling of food in the water brings all sorts of critters.

The water is amazingly clear and you will be able to observe much of the marine life at low tide. We saw starfish, even in the winter months. The scenery is exceptional as well and dry bags are provided to protect your camera or video recorder but please bring plenty of film. The guides will be happy to record you as you are paddling along the shoreline.

In addition, guides will be carrying binoculars to share with the group as well as hydrophones so you can listen to marine life under the water's surface.


Just before your return to Ketchikan, you will be treated to a snack of smoked salmon and soft drinks.
    Departures (Local Island Time):  07:45 AM (4 hrs)  08:45 AM (4 hrs)  09:45 AM (4 hrs)  12:45 PM (4 hrs)  02:45 PM (4 hrs)
