Silverking Lodge Tour & Seafood Boil
Your tour starts immediately at the cruise ship dock as you board your motorcoach and enjoy a narrated tour of Ketchikan en route to Clover Pass Resort, one of the oldest operating fishing resorts in the State of Alaska. At Clover Pass, you meet your captain and first mate before stepping aboard our enclosed jet boat. Prepare for a thrilling water adventure as your captain navigates through bays and inlets while your narrator gives you insights on the land, the air, and the sea.
Aboard the boat, you have the opportunity to see the abundant wildlife of southeast Alaska, such as eagles, porpoises, and seals. From May through September, whales are often sighted along the tour route. Your tour makes its way by the Back Island Naval Facility and into the heart of Grant Island State Marine Park and Silverking Lodge. You can find plenty to do at Silverking Lodge, including viewing the underwater dock camera and checking out the catches of anglers as they come and go from the lodge.
Silverking’s exclusive elevated boardwalk trail allows you to walk into the normally difficult to access rainforest. Discover its secrets, like Old Man’s Beard and nursery trees. At the end of the trail, be sure to have your camera ready for the largest known red cedar in the Tongass National Forest. Then, venture back to the lodge for a seafood boil including Dungeness crab, shrimp, mussels, clams, sausage, corn, garlic, pearl onions, and french bread. Last but not least, visit the gift shop, where you can purchase memorabilia and look for your home to place a pin on the world map.
