Explore the Alaskan rain forest aboard an electric 4x4 buggy on this 3-hour tour in Ketchikan. Steer the wheel yourself, or sit in the passenger seat and relax, learning about the area’s history and plant life along the way from an informative guide. Reach a wilderness camp, where you’ll enjoy a pancake buffet, followed by campfire-roasted marshmallows. Round-trip transport from Ketchikan hotels and the cruise terminal included.
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.

Over priced

Wish I would of read reviews first. Fun for children under 10. Over priced for what you get. Done in 3 hrs, that includes ride to and from golf carts.
