Overview
Explore Southeast Alaska’s Inside Passage while steering your own 14-foot zodiac boat on this shore excursion. After a safety briefing, follow an expert guide into inlets and estuaries and watch for wildlife including whales, seals and sea lions. While out on open water, you might even pass one of the crabbing vessels featured on the Discovery Channel’s 'Deadliest Catch!' Port transport is included on this 2.5-hour outing.
What to Expect
You'll be picked up at the cruise ship terminal and take you on a short 3-mile drive to Saxman Native Village. Watch a short safety video, sign a waiver and get outfitted in top-of-the line gear. Then walk down to your boat, get you another safety briefing, and hop
aboard the 14-foot inflatable boat to explore one of the most beautiful places in the Southeast Alaska Inside Passage.

Driving your own boat, follow your guide through inlets and estuaries and adventure out onto the open water in search of whales, seals, sea lions and more. Keep an eye out for some the commercial crabbing vessels featured on the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch!

The exact route will depend on wind, weather and location of wildlife. You'll be on the water for about 2 hours of exhilarating fun. After returning to the marina, take off your gear and warm up with a hot beverage before your shuttle departs for the cruise ship dock.

I think you would be cutting it close. They drive you to the shop from the boat dock which is about 10 min. Orientation is about 30 min. Then the tour is over an hour. Then back to change, hot cocoa and another 10 min ride... More
