KETCHIKAN MAP

ON YOUR OWN

Ketchikan doesn’t have many major, in-town attractions. The more enticing out-of-town tours are often fully-booked by the cruise lines. If you want to do a particular tour on your own, book far in advance. The Visitor Information Center has many tour sales desks, but choices may be slim. A good walking tour map is readily available and covers anything you can possibly see in town. Fish fans will love the fish and chips stands right at the docks. The Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show is the top in-town attraction, just three blocks from the Berth 1 pier. The 60-minute shows are $37 adults/$18.50 children 3-12, under 3 free. Walk-up tickets may be available, but don’t count on it. Advance tickets are only sold by the cruise lines. Right across the street, Southeast Alaska Discovery Center is a U.S. Forest Service facility with native culture and natural history exhibits ($5 adults, ages 0-15, free). Trace Ketchikan Creek upstream through the Creek St. red light district and onward, to follow the salmon swimming up fish ladders to the Deer Mountain Hatchery (the former Eagle Center here is now closed). Totem Heritage Center, a short distance from the hatchery, hosts a large collection of 19th-century totems ($5). Totem Bight State Park is a beautiful waterfront spot 9 miles to the north, and admission is free. Three miles south of town, Saxman Native Village has totems, craftsmen, and interpretive tours. Walk-up tours may be available, but they ask cruisers to book through the cruise line.
