  Rain Forest Island Adventure
An island adventure by land and sea!

Join an experienced Alaskan trail guide for a walk through natural, unspoiled beauty in the coastal rain forest on a remote island in the Tongass National Forest. The trail takes you through a beautiful old growth forest, by way of a secluded beach, and is mostly boardwalk, about one-mile in length and well maintained.

Follow your knowledgeable guide through this ancient forest and learn about botanic species native to this region, like Western red cedar and yellow cedar that early Natives were so dependent upon for spiritual enrichment, shelter and transportation, and how Sitka spruce was instrumental in the construction of Howard Hughes' famous "Spruce Goose" and other early vintage fighter planes.

After hiking this gently sloped historic trail, enjoy an Alaskan snack of smoked salmon, cheese and crackers, hot chocolate, coffee, juice and water. Then take some time to explore the natural beauty around you.

A motorized rigid inflatable Seahawk provides a short, but exciting cruise along the coast of Clover Passage. Whales, Stellar sea lions, harbor seals, porpoise, bald eagles and migrating seabirds may be spotted on this route. Knudson Cove is the launch point for transportation from your hotel or pier. Bring your camera and binoculars!

Tour Includes: Round-trip transportation, motorized Seahawk provides an exciting cruise along the coast of Clover Passage, experienced and knowledgeable Alaskan trail guide and interpretation, quality raingear and life jacket, Alaskan snack and beverages.

Customer Review:
Sweet trip. Well organized at the dock out of Ketchikan. Excellent on the boat and on the ground guides, plenty of local knowledge (from a local guide), beautiful grounds and scenery and as a reward maybe the best smoked salmon we've had over a camp fire.
And an eagle on the boat ride back posing for pictures. What's not to like?
