Ketchikan Silverking Lodge Adventure & Seafeast | Same Day

Excursion Overview

A thrilling water adventure exploring Southeast Alaska

Guests will begin the tour immediately at the cruise ship dock as you board your motorcoach and enjoy a narrated tour of Ketchikan en route to Clover Pass Resort, one of the oldest operating fishing resorts in the State of Alaska. At Clover Pass, guests will meet their captain and first mate before stepping aboard the boat leg of their journey. Prepare for a thrilling water adventure as the captain navigates through bays and inlets, while the narrator gives you insights on the land, the air, and the sea.

Aboard the boat, guests will have the opportunity to see the abundant wildlife of southeast Alaska, such as eagles, porpoises, and seals. From May through September, whales are often sighted along the tour route. The tour will make its way by the Back Island Naval Facility and into the heart of Grant Island State Marine Park and Silverking Lodge. Guests will find plenty to do at Silverking Lodge, including viewing the underwater dock camera, and checking out the catches of anglers as they come and go from the lodge. Silverking's exclusive elevated boardwalk trail allows you to walk into the normally difficult-to-access rainforest. Discover its secrets like Old Man's Beard and nursery trees. At the end of the trail, guests will want to be sure to have their cameras ready for the largest known red cedar in the Tongass National Forest.

Then, venture back to the lodge for a seafood boil including Dungeness crab, shrimp, mussels, clams, sausage, corn, garlic, pearl onions, and French bread. Last but not least, a visit to the gift shop where guests can purchase memorabilia and look for their homes to place a pin on the world map.
