This thrilling and scenic ecological adventure is one of the most convenient tours Ketchikan Alaska has to offer; because it begins right at your cruise docks! Just steps away from your cruise ship, you’ll load up your unique hovercraft vessel for a tour to a secluded local beach. As you make your way along on your Hovercraft Eco Adventure and Wildlife Viewing Tour, your naturalist guide will share their knowledge of Ketchikan’s coastal ecosystem & the unique craft you are riding in. Then, they will teach you all about the 20-inch “air-cushion” below your vessel and explain what makes the hovercraft an eco-friendly alternative to other cruising options. It’s perfect for the conscious traveler looking to preserve the environment they are exploring. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife as you cruise along Revillagigedo’s rainforest coast to your scenic beach landing. Seals, porpoises, and eagles are known to make appearances!
When you reach the beach, your hovercraft will fly right onto the shore as a result of it’s “air-cusion”! This exciting transition is a thrill you won’t find on any other crafts or tours Ketchikan Alaska offers. After your hovercraft comes to a stop, get out, stretch your legs, and explore the stunning shoreline. From here, your Hovercraft Eco Adventure and Wildlife Viewing Tour takes you back out onto the water for more wildlife opportunities. Because of this, be sure ave your camera ready as your keen-eyed guide points out any animals along the way. Sightings could range from something as small as a starfish to as large as a humpback whale! To finish our the Hovercraft Eco Adventure and Wildlife Viewing Tour, you will again skirt the beautiful coastlines of Revillagigedo as you hover your way back to the cruise docks. Make sure to charge your cameras before this one, the up-close views, truly unique travel experience & abundant wildlife opportunities make this one of the tours Ketchikan Alaska offers that you won’t want to forget!
