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 Ketchikan tour 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.

Our tour guide was very informative. We were in Ketchikan on an 80 degree day so not much wildlife was out and about. The Native village tour and explanation of the totem poles was very informative.

saxman native village and Ketchikan tour
July 24, 2023
I liked that this was in part a motorcoach tour and a walking tour. The guide was very good and informative and did his best to help us see wildlife including feeding halibut to the bald eagles. We did see a mama bear and 2 cubs. I very much liked the native village and totems.

Interesting Places Visited

The tour of Saxman Native Village was interesting but did not require the amount of time that was allotted for people to walk around. The tour of Ketchikan was interesting. The highlight of the tour was viewing of eagles and a bear.

We really enjoyed this excursion. The tour guide was excellent and gave us a lot of information on the places we visited. We met a Native man who told us a little about his culture and showed us artifacts. We saw the totem poles and a demonstration of men who were making a new one. It was a very enjoyable day!
