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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if it rains? Do the trips get canceled?
Ketchikan is in the heart of a temperate rainforest, and we would never do anything if we stopped for the rain. Please do not let the possibility of rain deter you from booking. Southeast Alaska is at its most beautiful on misty rainy days.
What if our cruise ship's schedule is canceled or delayed?
We will try our best to work with you to reschedule the tour to a later time. If that is not a possibility or your ship doesn't make it into port, then you will receive a refund, less any non-refundable fees.
How long is this excursion, and is transportation included?
The total duration of this activity is about 1.25 hours from start to finish. The meeting location will be just next to the Berth 3, which is conveniently situated very close to where the cruise ships dock. Of course, you'll receive detailed meeting instructions and planning information in a confirmation email upon booking.
What should I wear and how should I prepare for this tour?
No special equipment is necessary for you to bring. Dress warmly and in layers as the temperature can fluctuate throughout the day. We recommend bringing gloves and an extra pair of socks for your comfort. Please come prepared with proper footwear for walking on the beach.
