So much better than our Duck Tour in Boston. These are brand new Duck Boats, and they glided in and out of the water effortlessly. Our tour guide was great and super enthusiastic about the subject matter. Was over and above what we had experienced in the past, and getting to buy our very own duck whistles was a hoot! Read Less

Because we were on a 14 day cruise and had done excursions on the Northward leg of the Cruise we had not booked anything for the southern leg and so we took a fun tour of Ketchikan in an amphibious vehicle and it also goes into the water down a boat ramp for a view of Ketchikan harbor, it is 90 mins long and the fellow that we had was humorous and knowledgeable about the area Read Less

It was fun. A little expensive for what you get, but, hey...they gotta make a living. Tired humor, but, the information was interesting.

We saw salmon spawning, got a nice, informative tour of the town (including the 1800's red-light district and history of it), and a tour of the harbor area. Worth the money and time.

Two guides were very funny and knowledgeable. This is a good way to see the town and marina. I saw a lot of bald eagles. Cruise line charged too much though for all excursions they offered though, but at least they posted a sign acknowledging that the price of excursion tickets include a 20% or more commision that goes to Princess. Wal-Mart offers a free shuttle to the "world's second smallest Wal-Mart". Read Less

Ketchikan was an interesting stop full of local history and sites. Many opportunities to see Totem poles here. We took the duck tour which was very interesting, and gave us a good look at the city and huge marina. Our tour boat broke down just as it was trying to get out of the water, but the quick thinking staff got us on our way with out too much delay. The guide stayed in good humor throughout the 'crisis' Things not to miss are Creek Street, and some of the beautiful totem pole carvings throughout the tourist district. Read Less
