We are a party of 18 (7 adults and 11 kids aged 16 to 8) and are looking for fun excursions that will give us a little adventure and experience the surroundings. We were looking at the adventure carts and wondered how many people the carts fit - it looks like 2? Any recommendations. Lori
When we go to Ketchikan we always rent a car (perhaps in your case a mini van or two or). We drive to the points of interest including Totem Bight. http://www.dnr.state.ak.us/parks/units/totembgh.htm
and Saxman Village which is the other way down the road and is very authentic. Be sure and visit the native store by the main road. We got some rare and unusual things there. We usually drive up to Cape Fox Lodge for a great view of town and the ship.
The thing is you're not tied to a schedule and can stop wherever for however long. Especially important with kids.
Have fun. What ship are you on?
