Ketchikan, Alaska Cruise Port

Ketchikan is the most southeastern city located on the Inside Passage in Alaska and is known as the ‘Salmon Capital of the World’. Most of the city’s revenue is based on tourism and fishing – not a bad combination for cruise stop. Ketchikan, which is named after the Ketchikan Creek that flows directly through town, features an oceanic climate moderated by its maritime location, offering mild summers with temperatures averaging in the mid 60s. This beautiful city located on the edge of the Inside Passage is full of color and culture from the Indian villages. Discover their influence in everything from the beautifully carved totem poles to the quaint wooden buildings on Creek Street that are sitting on pilings over the water. Contact our Alaska cruise experts for help planning your cruise to Ketchikan.

  • Be sure to visit the world’s largest collection of standing totem poles in Saxman Village, Totem Bright and Totem Heritage Center.
     
  • Explore the Misty Fjords National Monument and some of its thousands of ocean inlets.
     
  • Indulge in some fresh salmon. After all, Ketchikan is the “Salmon Capital of the World.” Better yet, jump on a boat and experience the local life as you fish for your own salmon.
     
  • It doesn’t get more American than seeing bald eagles up close during a visit to The Eagle Center.
     
  • If you prefer off-the-beaten-path adventures, take a hike up Deer Mountain Trail and enjoy the spectacular views of the city and surrounding islands.
