What a great experience! Captain Rob played his part superbly. We stood at the front of the boat for the most part, and were able to see all kinds of wildlife. While the tour is a little cheesy at times, we knew that going in, and had a marvelous time!

The tour company does a commendable job right from the cruise boat maintenance (look and feel, facilities and comfort on board), crew (Anthony and Marcus) and captain (Capt. Jeff), hospitality and the tour itself. Because I was too soaked in taking photos as I approached the floating pier, the boat actually sailed off a few feet when they saw me... More

The skipper and mate of the boat were locals and very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. Very nice and accompanying. We saw eagles everywhere, the totems were awesome but would like to have gotten a closer look. The lighthouses in Alaska are so very different than what we are used to seeing. They were beautiful, especially when there is... More

This excursion delivered everything it promised: a lighthouse, totems, and eagles! On top of that, Captain Rob was hilarious and made the trip all the better. If you don't get the humor, it's not Rob, it's you.

We enjoyed our time with Captain Rob (who reminds me of Capt. Obvious in the hotels.com commercials) and his crew. We spotted many eagles and sea lions, saw the lighthouse, and viewed the totems. As a true native (many of the bus drivers working the cruise ships are imports from the continental US), Capt. Rob shared a lot of history... More

This excursion was really nice, even though it was a very rainy day. We saw lots of eagles. The only bad thing is that because the water was choppy, we didn't get close to the lighthouse, but it was out of the captain's hands. The captain (I forgot the young man's name) and the rest of the staff were very... More

We booked this excursion from the Norwegian Sun Alaskan cruise at the end of September 2016. At the port, we boarded a bus and had a brief tour of the town of Ketchigan, then headed for the port and boarded the boat for our excursion. Captain Jeff made us very welcome and off we went. He and the crew knew... More

This tour was a cruise line excursion. We took a brief, educational motor coach ride to the dock. Within a few minutes of shoving off we were seeing eagles. Sightings were continual, continuing the entire time. The tour guide's wealth of knowledge was impressive. He added a great deal of humor, and intelligent comentary on all things Alaskan. During sightings,... More

Unbelievable trip! Captain Rob was a blast and his crew were first rate. Their knowledge of the area and the wildlife was second to none. Saw way more than advertised. Well worth the time and money. Transfer staff was top rate as well. One of the best shore excursions I have ever taken and everyone going to Ketchikan should take... More
