Rain Forest Canoe & Nature Trail

Rain Forest Canoe & Nature Trail

Rain Forest Canoe & Nature Trail

Begin your adventure as you travel to a secluded lake by motorcoach. Upon arrival you will board 37-foot Indian style twenty passenger canoes, which are fast, stable and easy to maneuver. Paddle under the direction of an experienced guide, scan the shore for wildlife and learn the unique natural and Indian history of the Ketchikan area. Experience what it was like for the original explorers.

The lake, a part of the lush rain forest, is surrounded by the National Tongass Forest, one of the largest forests in the United States.

We will stop ashore for a native-style snack including smoked fish, clam chowder, rolls with wild berry jams and beverages. A knowledgeable guide will lead a short nature walk, highlighting the flora and fauna of the rain forest, including such features as carnivorous plants.

Paddle back to the canoe dock where you will board your motorcoach and return to the cruise ship pier.
