Ketchikan Tours

Ketchikan is well known as the salmon capital of the world and a paradise for sport fishermen and naturalists alike. During the summer months, the town bustles with visitors from all over the world. While the rustic boardwalk on Creek Street preserves a distinct historic feel, the town hums with new construction to keep up with the ever-expanding wave of tourism.

Ketchikan has a population of 14,500 and is built along a steep hillside, with sections of the town built right over the water on pilings. An outstanding collection of totem poles make a visit to Ketchikan essential for anyone interested in Native art. Ketchikan’s name supposedly comes from the native term “uot;uot;Katch Kanna”, which roughly translates: “spread wings of a thundering eagle” and rightly named, for you only need to look along the water line and you’re likely to see many bald eagles on waterside perches.
