Ketchikan All In One
Ketchikan All In One Excursion
The southeasternmost city in stunning Alaska, Ketchikan, is located on an island surrounded by the lush Tongass National Forest.
Your journey into this charming city starts with a short Ketchikan city tour where you will stop at one of the area's many salmon cannaries. Learn about the salmon industry, observe various marine life, and watch the salmon run up the ladder.
From there you will travel to Saxman Village Park where you will be greeted by the largest collection of standing totems in one location. Walk through the 25 replicas of original Native Alaskan totem poles and observe the artistic carvings revealing stories of the people and legends of the past. While here, head to one of the wildlife viewing spots for your chance to see eagles on a nest.
Continue to Rotary Beach and explore the tide pools looking for crab and other marine life. This beach is popular with the locals and it's easy to see why with the the great opportunities to see humpback and orca whales as they migrate through Nicolas Passage. On this Ketchikan tour, savor the taste of local berries, then travel to Herring Cove for an excellent chance to view eagles, seals, heron and bears - not to mention thousands of salmon returning to the place of their birth upstream!
Conclude your tour with a stop at a breathtaking cascading waterfall before your return trip back to port. If you love animals and nature then you do not want to miss out on this cruise excursion while in Ketchikan! Book now.
Please Note: Restrooms available at Rotary Beach.

Very enjoyable excursion.

This tour was great because it was a small family run business. My family being a big group (7) made it so they split the entire group into 2 vans, making our tour basically a private tour. Our guide was great! Very knowledgeable and genuinely excited to share stories of the town. We were lucky enough to see whales off the coast, a bear eating, and multiple eagles.

Our guide Eli is great just showing off his own town-very personal. The beauty and wonder of God's creation is very evident in the environment and animals that we saw. Great family excursion for 11 of us!

My Mom is currently wheelchair bound so it is difficult for her to get in & out of a vehicle easily. Our tour guide Eli was beyond fantastic! He personally helped me to get Mom into the front seat of the van so that she could have the best view possible. At each stop, he assisted with getting her out of the van & into her wheelchair. When that was not possible (i.e. viewing a waterfall), he positioned the van as close as possible so that she could see what was going on. I was worried that she would feel left out of things & not get to see stuff but that was not the case! Eli was thoughtful, courteous, professional & a fantastic tour guide! I would recommend him & his company to anyone!
