Harbor Overview Cruise
Discover Beautiful Ketchican Harbor
Set off in a group of no more than 6 guests on a quick, but site filled overview of Ketchikan from the water on this Ketchikan shore trip.
During your 60 minutes on the water, you will be able to view Saxman Native Village known for its large collection of totems, You will see Creek Street from below and see how it got its name. You will pass canneries, an important part of the local fishing industry, and your captain will even point out nowhere, and explain how it got its name.
This is a great Ketchikan tour for photographers as it is not only scenic, but your boat will explore hidden coves where there is always the possibility of wildlife or eagle spotting,
On this Ketchikan shore excursion, your licensed captain will give commentary on what you are seeing. Your boat has both inside cabin and outside deck for viewing. There is no restroom on the boat. Once back in town, you'll dock your boat and warm up with a hot beverage. You will then have the option to be dropped off at your ship, or you can enjoy a brief stroll back to your cruise ship.
Seeing so many eagles up close and feeding on fish was one of the many highlights of a view from a small boat as the captain provided information about the town and history. Recommended for sure.
What a great experience. We received a very personalized tour of the harbor. Saw the Totem Poles, an eagle and a ship from the show "The Deadliest Catch" Whole heartedly recommend this tour.

Wonderful experience! Great tour of the harbor area with history.
The boat was small but had a protected cabin and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. This was one of the most enjoyable excursions we have had.
