See Historical Saxman Native Village, City and Wildlife

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.

5 StarsLoved the City Tour and our Guide October 05, 2019

Reviewer: Crosby Gest
The stop in Ketchikan only lasted 4 hours, I wish it would have lasted longer. The tour was great and our guide was very informative and concerned about his city. By the time our city tour was finished we barely had time to souvenir shop. Felt rushed and this cruise for us was all about relaxing and enjoying the trip.

4 Starsprint your confirmation?October 02, 2019

Reviewer: Marilyn Turner
We had an excellent tour and really enjoyed our guide. Unfortunately, the requirement of having a printed confirmation was very costly because we did not receive it until after we were away from home. We had to purchase internet on the ship in order to print it.

Reviewer: Jennifer
We saw everything advertised but the trip was pretty cramped - 11 of us in a 12 person van with 4 long bench seats - difficult to get in and out as we made a lot of stops. We've been to Ketchikan many times but it was interesting to get out of town and see more of the countryside.

3 StarsAn ok tourSeptember 22, 2019

Reviewer: Karen Anderson
Ken was our guide and he was friendly and funny. The totems at Saxman village we’re interesting but I thought there would be more of a village than a few totem poles and a long house. It was fine, just not what I expected. We also saw a salmon ladder and a carver at work. He told us about the city but left us on our own to explore.

Reviewer: Chris
Excellent tour guide, who showed us bald eagles and spawning salmon. The totem pole village was very well done. Could have skipped the first stop, seemed like a tourist trap.
