Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

This delightful three-hour tour gives you the rare opportunity to commune with nature in a breathtaking setting of the Ketchikan rainforest. A scenic coastal drive takes you to rustic Herring Cove, where a naturalist will guide you along a forest trail past Alaskan cedars before stopping at an elevated boardwalk overlooking Eagle Creek. During spawning season (mid-July through September,) the salmon runs attract eagles, bears, seals and shorebirds. Then photograph bald eagles up close at the Alaska Raptor Center's exhibit, visit the fascinating Herring Bay Lumber Company sawmill and explore the on-site totem park. Browse the General Store before the ride back to town.

Special Notes:
