Description

14 beautifully colored totem poles will await you just 15 minutes from downtown at what was originally the site of a traditional fishing camp at the edge of the Tongass Narrows. A short walk through the woods will take you to the famous totem poles recovered from an overgrown forest and repaired or duplicated by skilled carvers using handmade tools. A community house onsite (also called a clan house) was added to the National Register of Historic Places back in 1970. Every step of the way your guide will familiarize you with the historical significance of the totem poles and the botanical examples of North Pacific coast greens that flourish here.

After your exploration of the Totem Bight State Historical Park you will head over to the secluded Harriet Hunt Lake in the Tongass National Forest where you'll board a 37- foot, 15-passenger canoe which is fast, stable, and easy to maneuver. You will paddle under the direction of an experienced guide, scan the shore for wildlife, and learn about the history of the Ketchikan area. The lake, part of a lush rain forest, is ideal for canoeing and is surrounded by the Tongass, the largest national forest in the United States.

Once you've built up an appetite, we'll stop ashore for a native-style snack, including smoked salmon, clam chowder, rolls with wild berry jam, and beverages. A knowledgeable guide will highlight the flora and fauna of the rainforest before we paddle back to the canoe dock and you reboard your transportation for the return to the cruise ship pier.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
