TOUR KETCHIKAN, ALASKA


Explore the great outdoors on our Ketchikan boat excursion! Known for its rustic beauty, unique wildlife, rich culture, and stunning views, Ketchikan is truly a must-see area for those who love nature. Lighthouse Excursions invites you to experience a little bit of it all on our Lighthouse, Totems and Eagles Excursion.

While on board one of our two vessels, the Lighthouse Endeavor or the Totem Princess, you’ll have an opportunity to view in panorama the beauty of our world’s largest temperate rainforest, the Tongass National Forest; admire the stunning artwork and cultural history captured in the Alaska Native totem poles and clan house at Totem Bight State Park; uncover the unique past and present of Guard Island Lighthouse; and delight in a plethora of wildlife opportunities, including guaranteed sightings of American bald eagles.

Alaska is home to 15,000 mated pairs of bald eagles, and the open-air observation deck on each of our vessels is the perfect spot to view this majestic bird. Binoculars are provided so that you can get a great look at them as they soar through the sky, catch a fish, feed their young, or perch nearby. The crisp Alaskan air can be chilly, so when you’re ready to get warm, visit our heated main cabin, where you can enjoy a taste of local cuisine as your captain and guides share their own stories of Alaskan living.

So Many Eagles So Little Time

It was a cool and rainy day for this tour which turned out to be perfect for finding eagles! We saw 38. The crew of the boat was very attentive to the needs of the passengers... If you take this trip, make sure to enjoy the hot chocolate and salmon spread with crackers.

Above and Beyond

Could not have asked for a better experience! Our deckhand, Andrew, was instrumental in making it so as my daughter was on crutches at the time. He went out of his way to ensure she had a wonderful experience despite her lack of mobility.

Excellent Tour

The wildlife wasn't in captivity. They showed up on time ....... The area was stunning, the crew was knowledgeable, and we got a sea shanty that wasn't advertised. Excellent tour.

Funny and Informative

As a local, I love this tour. I have gone on it and learned something new. When family or friends come to town this is the tour I recommend. The Captains are great at their job and the crew they hire are funny and informative.

Great Tour!

This is a world winning excursion... The captain and crew truly do have so much passion in their service... We received hot chocolate upon arrival, home made delicious salmon dip and crackers as a snack. We saw at least a dozen bald eagles and overall had an outstanding time. Thank you to Anthony, Marcus & Captain Kyle!
