Your adventure starts with a motor coach ride way out of town. Enjoy a speedy and exhilarating 15 minute inflatable boat ride to the Tatoosh Islands.
Upon arrival at the beach your guides will prepare you for your Ketchikan wilderness paddling experience with an informative kayak class and safety talk before assisting you into your double sea kayak. You will gain confidence in your kayak as you paddle up the shoreline toward the Tatoosh Islands. Following your guides away from the beach you'll explore passages in and around this unique and serene island environment. Feel free to stop and take pictures, tune into the guide narrative of the natural and cultural history of the Tongass National Forest, or sit quietly and appreciate the tranquil rainforest setting. Keep an eye out for sea birds, bald eagles, seals, and other marine life. Whales and bears are sometimes spotted in this area too. Don't miss this opportunity to join a small group on this award winning tour!

"My experience with SE was part of a Royal Caribbean shore excursion. We were picked up on a bus outside of the ship and driven to their place of business about 10-15 minutes away. Next we jumped on an inflatable boat with a hard bottom and taken to a kayak beach.
For the next couple hours we paddled the Tatoosh Islands for about 3 miles or so - the view was outrageous - and we were even able to see some wildlife. Great trip with a super friendly and knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend the Tatoosh Islands Sea Kayak excursion to anyone visiting Ketchikan."
