Ketchikan Rainforest Hike Excursion Reviews

A rainforest hike in Ketchikan is a great way to get active outdoors—and admire the flora and fauna that makes Alaska so memorable.
Lots of wildlife.
Lots of wildlife. If you aren't steady on your feet don't go. You need to be able to get into a Zodiak. Tour guide on hike was very energetic and clearly loves nature

Decent trip a bit underwhelming for the price.
Decent trip a bit underwhelming for the price. You can catch a free shuttle to totem pole park yourself, but the guide gave us some very good information we would not likely get. He was a local so I liked to get that perspective

A fun, but cold boat ride to the island. Really enjoyed the rainforest hike. Our guide did a wonderful job of telling us about the forest. I love walking around in a forest, so for me, one of my favorite things. For us, a sad part was the excursion was mislabeled. We thought we were getting an Orca Beach Cruise and Rainforest Hike. But, even with out the whale watching part, we still really enjoyed it. We did provide feedback to the tour company to change the name of the trip on their end. Read Less

Billed as Family Rainforest Adventure. Nothing of an adventure. WAY overpriced at $250.00 for about a 2 mile drive in an electric cart and a couple pancakes and marshmallows. AVOID at all costs.

We took a small boat over the the Tongass forest and went on a nature "hike" through the rain forest. The highlight of the excursion though was the boat ride. While it wasn't a whale watching excursion, when the boat driver heard there was a humpback in the area, he searched for it and then, when he found it, waited for us to be able to see the whale dive.
