Our guide Zach was great! Very knowledgeable and friendly. Just disappointed we didn’t see any wildlife. And some people sat in the boat and didn’t row 🤬😬 Nice snack and drinks toward the end. I would rather be in this environment in the peace and quiet because we were surrounded by beauty.

Absolutely amazing! Our bus driver Bruce was very knowledgeable and hilarious. He kept us entertained the whole way! Colt was our guide and he was amazing. His respect for the forest and knowledge was incredible. The snack Star Dust prepared for us was delicious. I would highly recommend!!

Our guide Colt was great. He was very energetic and very informative. He made the entire trip fun! The lake was beautiful and we saw a bald eagle and a doe. The rainforest walk was nice and we learned a lot about the flora. The food was good and I even enjoyed the seafood chowder and I don’t like seafood. I would tell people doing this excursion that the walk is not hard and canoeing and paddling in the canoe is not strenuous either, very relaxing.

The main problem with this excursion was the bus driver Mr. Ed. He needs to speak slowly and clearly into his microphone and only talk about the interesting things on the drive to the excursion. Most of the time he mumbled and rambled into the microphone about his own personal life. It was really uncomfortable to be trapped in the bus like this. The excursion was pretty basic paddling around an inland lake with a very short nature walk. Guide Miles was knowledgeable. I wouldn’t do this again and wouldn’t recommend it.

If I was just rating on the quality of our guide and the delicious snack, this would be a 5/5. However, we were disappointed with this excursion and would not recommend.

The description is a little misleading. We thought we’d have some opportunity to see wildlife, though as soon as we got on the bus we were informed this would not be the case as not much wildlife is at this location. The carnivorous plant is probably cooler to see later on in the season, but when we went (late May), it was smaller than the size of a thumb nail.

The nature walk is good-hearted, and our guide, Colt, was incredibly knowledgeable about the forest and the different quirks. Probably great for kids. Not much that you can’t see walking into a local forest though.

The huge upside was Colt’s enthusiasm and passion for the area. It was contagious and we’re very appreciative to him.

Every person in your group is in the same canoe, so paddling can be difficult, especially when there are people who have never canoed before.

Overall, this experience can be had pretty much anywhere that has a small lake. Pass if you want something a little more true to Alaska/Ketchikan.

Bumpy road ride, almost no intro to the history of Alaska. Lake is serene, but local nature guide lacks nature knowledge and the forest walk was less then 5 min. Pretty disappointed at thr nature interpretation. Canoe ride was present and snak was good . But would not recommend .

A beautiful day in Ketchikan. From the first moment with Colt, he stimulated enthusiasm for the excursion. He is infectious and knowledgeable. Thank you, Colt, for a lovely day on the lake!
Ed, the bus driver was a hoot. Kept us entertained the whole trip. Loved the echo!

After a couple of days at sea, this was a good way to stretch out. It was a beautiful day out on Lake Harriet Hunt and the guides were very well versed, very informative. The paddling was a breeze and the hike was a little too short but, all in all, a great time was had by all. The salmon snack near the end was delicious!

This excursion far exceeded the description and we were pleasantly surprised. We first of all got a nice ride on a coach bus to the private lake deep in the Tongass National Forest. The lady who drove the bus was a wealth of knowledge and we learned a lot on the ride, along with some laughs as she had a fun sense of humor. When we got to the lake we were taken away by the beauty of being so remote and seeing the mountains and trees that surrounded this beautiful, private lake. We were fortunate enough to have Cole as our guide! He was so patient, and seemed so happy to be doing what the was doing. The wealth of knowledge he had was impressive. Guides like him are what make these that much more memorable. Such a fun and relaxing experience!!

After being on a cruise ship with 2000 people it was lovely to get out into the wilderness. About a 45 minute drive outside Ketchikan took us through wooded scenery to Harriet Hunt lake where we met Jesus and Doran our guides. After donning life jackets and picking up our paddles we climbed aboard. The paddling was very gentle, I'm not even sure that everyone took part. Doran was full of information about the lake and it's flora and amusing as well. We stopped on an island where Chuck had prepared a spread of,smoked salmon pate,bread,berry jam,clam chowder, coffee and hot chocolate,all very tasty. Before getting back in the canoe Doran took us on a nature walk pointing out more plants and trees. This was an ideal tour as we still had plenty of time back in Ketchikan to explore on our own.Highly recommended.
