    What to Expect
    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.

    This trip is way overpriced for what you get. There is very little time doing the actual ATV driving and although the scenery you do drive through is beautiful, it's just in a large circle near the company's property. We also spent too much time waiting around at the camp

    Thank you for your input. We understand your concerns and are working on moving this tour to a location that will allow more time on the ATV's. Unfortunately it won't have the totem park aspect included. I will also retrain my local guides and ask them to focus more on the environment than their personal experience growing up here.

    This was our favorite excursion. From the moment we were greeted by our driver, a native Alaskan, to the water, we were treated with 5 star service and genuine hospitality. Our zodiac guide even brought frozen fish so we could see a bald eagle dive and retrieve it. Highly

    Maybe it was because we had scheduled this adventure on a day that ended up being rainy and gloomy that we were the only two in our buggy. At any rate, Nedalyn, who is Ketchikan born and raised...and perhaps (as I choose to believe) a descendant of the town's Alaskeros...was a

    Thank you so much for your kind review and taking the time to write it. We are so glad you picked our tour to launch your bucket list adventure.

    Our Alaskan Family Rainforest Adventure was way more than we expected. Nedalyn Gonzales, a young native of Ketchikan exceeded our expectations as she took us on an ATV ride through the rainforest. Her history of the city and the people included a heart felt love for a cub bear
