Ketchikan Fast Boat Adventure | Same Day

Excursion Overview

Military grade, fast boat fun on the water!

Join the fun and pilot your own military-grade inflatable fast boat through the coastal waters of Ketchikan. Seek out an adventure along Southeast Alaska's jagged coastlines, as bald eagles soar overhead and you explore the protected waters of Clover Pass.

Guests are outfitted with waterproof bibs, rain jackets, gloves, and boots to traverse the waters and stay dry amongst the second largest rainforest in the world - the Tongass National Rainforest.

Southeast Alaska is known for abundant wildlife and the calmer waters of Clover Pass allow you ample time to discover and explore. Wrap up your fast boat adventure at the Salmon Falls Resort for smoked salmon, salmon dip, hummus and complimentary Alaskan beers or hot chocolate.

Please note that one guest must be 21+ to drive the boat. Each inflatable fast boat holds up to 4 guests and 3 boats are utilized per tour.
