Tour Details

See Historical Saxman Native Village

This Ketchikan guided tour includes sights in the Ketchikan area, photo stops, and time at Saxman Native Village.

Enjoy the city tour of Ketchikan aboard a San Francisco-style trolley or motor coach. The views are outstanding as you travel past the rustic waterfront, boat harbors and the picturesque city park. You will stop near one of Ketchikan's private salmon canneries, where eagles are almost always in attendance. See a salmon ladder and watch salmon spring from the rushing water en route to the spawning grounds (late July through September). A stop will also be made for a brief introduction to a rainforest.

At Saxman Native Village, you'll gaze and be amazed at the world's largest standing collection of totem poles. On this Ketchikan tour you will hear the legends and stories of these ancient and majestic totem poles, and learn how and why they were made. You will also make an exterior-only visit to the Clan House, where your guide will explain some of the many carved figures. You will then have a short amount of free time to visit the Village Store and Artists Co-op, where authentic arts and crafts are made by Saxman Natives. This Alaska excursion does not include carving or native performances.

Once back in town, a stop will be made at Historic Creek Street. This was Ketchikan's former busy red light district, and is now home to the world-famous Dolly's House Museum. Guests can choose to either end the tour here (an approximately 10 minute walk from the cruise pier), or be returned to the pier. Your Ketchikan cruise tour includes a ticket to Dolly's House Museum.

Reviewer: Lloyd Qualls
Our tour guide, david, a native Alaskan (for many generation) was outstanding and made our cruise memorable!!! My His discussion of the history of Ketchican and his tribe and the totems of Saxman villlage were the highlight of our cruise. I would happily repeat this excursion if David was our tour guide. Don't miss this excursion

Reviewer: Judith Weisman
Our tour guide was amazing and took us to a lot of spots so we could view eagles which was near the Saxman Native Village. We even got to see Salmon hatchlings, seals and a bear (from a distance). She was very knowledgable about the history of the area so the tour was very enjoyable.
