Take a slow ride in a silent, easy-to-drive, off-road tour buggy from the shores of Ketchikan’s inside passage on this 3-hour adventure. Head through sacred, native land within the Tongass Rainforest for family fun around a crackling campfire with pancakes and s'mores. Then ascend in a buggy to a popular native overlook that offers spectacular views of Ketchikan’s surrounding islands on a clear day. Afterward, return to Saxman Seaport to visit Saxman Native Village and experience a close-up with many of Ketchikan’s famed totem poles.
A dock representative will meet and greet at the bottom of the cruise ship gangway and provide an escort to the waiting shuttle. After a 15-minute ride, arrive at the facility, then board the electric, bad-boy buggy. Drive the buggy or if preferred, ride with the guide along a beautiful rainforest trail, learning about the flora, fauna, and history of this incredible area along the way.
Upon arrival at the wilderness camp, all-you-can-eat pancakes and fruit, plus coffee, hot chocolate, bottled water, or hot apple cider will be available. Polish off this amazing meal by roasting marshmallows to create s'mores. Stretch out and walk back to the buggy to view the charming Lake Connell and its admirable dam.
Afterwards, return to the facility via the rare, wooden pipeline trail. There will be a few minutes to shop before boarding the shuttle for a return trip to the cruise-ship pier.
