About Ketchikan, Alaska

Often the first stop for northbound passengers on Inside Passage cruises, Ketchikan is a small and historic fishing town situated along the western edge of lush Revillagigedo Island. Passengers on Ketchikan cruises will find a frontier settlement tucked within the breach of the enormous Tongass National Rainforest, where wildlife including bald eagles and bears thrive among old-growth spruce trees. Even before the first outside settlers arrived, though, the area was home to a diverse group of native peoples whose legacy is prominently visible in the form of the intricate and numerous totems that still inhabit Ketchikan.

Important for guests on Ketchikan cruises, this port town offers some of the most gorgeous backcountry excursions in Southeast Alaska. One of the most iconic being the Misty Fjords Flightseeing, which allows adventurers to experience the isolated and magnificent Misty Fjords Monument via Alaska's go-to mode of transportation: floatplane! Ketchikan is also home to the popular Deadliest Catch boat tour by the daring Bering Sea fishermen that battle the high seas in search of King and Dungeness Crab.

Fans of outdoor adventure, gorgeous scenery, wildlife and native culture will find all of the above in this charming town!
