Ketchikan was originally founded as a Native American fishery before growing during the 1898 Gold Rush to the Klondike. Much of the town's colorful past is still evident, both in the city center and especially in the nearby Native American villages, where visitors will be enchanted by colorfully carved totem poles and the fascinating legends that surround them.
Attractions and Activities:
- Experience the sheer granite cliffs, plunging 1,000-foot waterfalls, crystalline lakes and low-hanging mists of Misty Fjords from the air on a seaplane.
- Visit the Totem Heritage Center and explore the history of these cultural icons which can also be found throughout the city.
- Troll through the town and shop for local crafts and jewelry before having a fresh seafood lunch at one of Ketchikan’s classic cafes.
This is a Hosted Adventure with the following optional group excursions. Enjoy these activities with your travel companions.

Salmon, halibut, snapper, cod, shark, and many other species abound in the waters of S.E. Alaska--and photo opportunities for wildlife are endless. Ketchikan is the "Salmon Capital of the World" and it lives up to its title every year!
Your half-day adventure begins when you're greeted up at the cruise ship pier, and transferred to your charted vessel. Your skipper will take you out in his 6-passenger boat to where both the fishing and sightseeing are excellent.
Your guide is well-acquainted with the whereabouts of the local fish population and his boat-- which features a heated, enclosed cabin and restroom facilities--and is of course outfitted with the perfect equipment for serious fishing. Of course, we'll supply all of the tackle for this awesome expedition.
The captain says "Fish in May and June for king salmon, July and August for pinks, August and September for coho and June and July for chums!"
Your day of discovery ends with a relaxing drive back to the pier.
