This Ketchikan guided tour includes sights in the Ketchikan area, an exclusive stop at eagle point and time at Saxman Native village.
Enjoy the city tour of Ketchikan aboard a deluxe motor coach or private 15 passenger van. 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 at Eagle point. This is an exclusive stop where Eagles and Harbor seals 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 at Historic Creek Street (an approximately 10 minute walk from the cruise pier), or be returned to the pier.

Was a very pleasant tour and covered an extensive area outside of Ketchikan. Driver was very knowledgeable and obviously new area well. The time we spent with the bald eagles was the high light of the day. Only negative was the meeting point was a very long walk from our ship and this was not noted on the ticketing directions, so we were a few minutes late. However, he dropped us off at our ship.
