Dog Sledding Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

A bus ride through Skagway then to base camp. A ride up 800' in a Unimog and the dogs were waiting for us to go for a ride. Plenty of time for pictures and to pat the dogs. Back down to base camp for a demonstration and the highlight of the tour, the puppies

Wildlife Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

A boat ride to Haines and Davidson Glacier. Whales & Eagles along the way. A stop for a picnic lunch then a bus ride to the canoes. After a short paddle the motor went in the water for the rest of the ride to the Glacier. The we walked out to see the Glacier. A really nice day

Bicycle Tour Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

The bike ride was 9 miles on a flat road. Only one hill to go up, not too bad. We rode out to see Mendenhall Glacier. It was a nice ride and good views. Then back to town for the beer. It is in an old airplane hanger. They let you sample a few different Alaskan Beers.

Snorkeling Rating: Not Rated

The day in Ketchikan was warm 75 degrees. We took a bus ride to the shop to get outfitted in our 7mm wetsuit with boots, gloves and a hood. We could not wait to get in the 50 degree water to cool off. We saw lots of different sea life, stars, cucumbers, kelp and lots of interesting jellies. When we stopped to rest you look up in the sky to see Bald Eagles. It was a great trip and a fun day. The staff at the Snorkel Shop was very helpful.
