Default Ketchikan Back Country Jet Boat Trip

Does anyone have any information regarding the Princess offered tour on the jet boat? Good, bad, fun, boring?. Also who might I contact do go independently?

It was scenic enough, but after the gorgeous scenery you've already seen by the time you get to Ketchikan, it's kind of boring.

I looked up the info on Princess page, trip leaves Ketchikan to Naha Bay in the Tongess Nat. Forest. Stop at Salmon Falls Resort with a motorcoach back.. My concern is the phrase "see the homes of rural Alaskans". Am I going to tour riverfront homes? Also confusing to me, coach up, short jet boat trip and coach back??. We have done wild rapid jet boat trip on the Rogue River in Oregon, those were fun.
Thanks for the suggestion it might be boring, any more input??

I replied via email but my opinion is, money would probably be better spent elsewhere. There are no "mansions" on the water front in Alaska and Ketchikan has a lot of waterfront industrial areas, no likely wildlife unless you count the salmon runs. Part of the area you are sailing is the same as your cruise ship. No likely rapids.
