Many people travel to Alaska because of our reputation for adventure. This underwater adventure will not dissuade you of that notion! Dive in and snorkel with killer whales in this incredible experience in Ketchikan, Alaska. The cold water, bright fish and starfish, and amazing whales will satisfy your desire for excitement!
The first thing you'll do when starting out on this adventure is get suited up!
Because the waters are so cold, everyone is equipped with a nice, toasty, 7mm thick wetsuit. The suit comes with boots, gloves, and hood so you can brave these waters comfortably! You'll also be equipped with snorkel and fins.
You won't have to worry too much however, because in Ketchikan's beautiful location, the waters don't get too cold. In fact, many reviewers say they never felt cold at all!
Due to the lack of any glaciers nearby, they stay at a lovely 65 degrees in the summer time. This means entering into the water isn't too bad!
You'll walk into the water from a lovely rocky beach on Mountain Point.
The area is filled with amazing creatures like sea cucumbers, sea stars, jelly fish and sea urchins! There is so much to see, and the water is very clear in this area.
This area also frequently has some larger visitors, including killer whales!
Many people don't realize this, but the diving and snorkeling in southeast Alaska is considered world class! The variety of marine life and the clear waters provide an incredible experience.
Killer whales aren't the only whale you'll see- keep your eyes peeled for the humpbacks, too!
These lovely whales love breeching and showing off in the waters nearby. The guides with your group will also educate you on all of the other species of marine life you'll see while swimming around.
After about an hour and a half, you'll come out of the water to head back to the shop.
You'll finish with a nice, hot, outdoor shower after your swim. Then it's back to the storefront so you can enjoy some delicious hot chocolate!
