Enjoyed the knowledge and wit from Capt Joe. Saw lots of eagles and he pointed out points of interest such as totem poles and their history.

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.

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.

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.

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.
