OMG! This was amazing. Not only was it fun to see the area and go into the water but our two travel guides were awesome! Not only did we learn about the area we were laughing pretty much nonstop! Check them out
This was so much FUN! Our tour guide Patricia was a hoot so it was alot of laughs and a great way to learn about this darling town. this was my favorite town and IF I ever go back to Alaska will enjoy the town even more. We weren't there for long however so you had to pick your tour carefully. The town is darling. We got to see the Biggest Catch ship in the harbor and saw salmon running in the streams, this is the salmon capital of Alaska. The shopping is very good here. Especially the store on the left of the dock when you first get in. Lots of good sales, including smoked salmon for $4.99. Again at the end of the season the shopping is very good and lots of deals especially on outer wear, etc. I loved this tour. I would do this again. Very comfortable, not too long, educational and fun. Patricia should be a stand up comic she made the tour.
A little too much duck in the beginning, but the duck left and things really improved. The tour was just right for us--not too long and not too short. Saw what we wanted and enjoyed ourselves very much.
Hubby reports this too was a disappointment. They served the way the description was listed, however it was a slow tour, and duck "quackers" given to the children, so Headache was quickly installed after they started quacking.
This would be fine for small children and older adults.
It was overcast in Ketchikan but at least not raining. If the duck tour driver and his assistant could stop talking and making relentlessly awful jokes, the tour would've been OK. Don't go without noise canceling headphones. Ketchikan has a scenic location- built into a wooded hill but not a lot to see or do in the town itself.
Again - this tour was excellent. Such a quaint town & the tour director was so very informative & had a great personality! Would have loved to spend more than a few hours in this town. Stay longer than a few hours. Eagles, eagles, eagles. Best of all the excursions!!
We had planned to just spend the day walking around Ketchikan and doing some shopping, but it was the only real wet day we had so at the last minute we jumped aboard the Duck and took a scenic trip through town and then into the water to tour the harbour. It wasn't a long trip and was a little expensive but it got us out of the rain and again we learned a lot about the area. Not a must do, but a great way to get out of the weather if need be!
