Hovercraft Eco Adventure and Wildlife Viewing Tour
Easily among the most unique tours Ketchikan Alaska (or the Inside Passage for that matter) has to offer, the Hovercraft Eco Adventure & Wildlife Viewing tour lets you float above water & land as you explore the waters & coastlines of Revillagigedo island. With a 20-inch air cushion below your vessel, you’ll cruise along Ketchikan’s scenic shorelines & even hover over to a remote scenic beach with the opportunity to disembark for up-close exploration. Have your cameras out and your eyes ready to capture the stunning Tongass National Rainforest, Inside Passage waters, and their many curious animals on this one-of-a-kind wildlife adventure!
Your Hovercraft Eco Adventure & Wildlife Viewing Tour begins directly from the dock with convenient loading onto the hovercraft just steps from your cruise ship. From here, you’ll travel in this open air vessel along the stunning shoreline of Ketchikan, taking in the city & the remote forested coast as you go. Your knowledgeable guide will take the time to point out interesting ecological facts, as well as go over the mechanics of your craft to explain why this unique way of exploring the waters ranks among the more environmentally-friendly tours Ketchikan Alaska offers.
Your Hovercraft Eco Adventure & Wildlife Viewing Tour will continue along until you reach a remote scenic beach, where your vessel will maneuver itself right up onto shore. Not something the average boat could do! Here, you’ll have the opportunity to stretch your legs & explore the beach before boarding back on the hovercraft for your return to town. Both on the beach, and throughout your journey in the hovercraft, keep an eye out for wildlife! Eagles, seals, and even whales can be spotted on this wildlife adventure. As one of the best tours Ketchikan Alaska offers for eco-friendly island exploration, you’ll be sure to leave the Hovercraft Eco Adventure and Wildlife Viewing Tour with memories (and hopefully photos) to last a lifetime.
