  • 1. Southeast Sea Kayaks

    Independent company offering small group sea kayak tours - no experience necessary. 4 Hour Orcas Cove Trip is an excellent way to get away from town and see the beautiful surrounds - plus you get smoked salmon! Trips suit cruise ship visitors and independent travellers.

  • 2. Totem Heritage Center
    Totem Heritage Center, Ketchikan, Alaska

    Walking distance from the cruise ship docks and downtown hotels. A walk up Creek Street and Along Married Men's trail is part of the fun. See totem poles being carved and learn about the art of the native people.

  • 3. Creek Street
    Creek Street, Ketchikan, Alaska

    Even though there's always a crowd when the cruise ships are in, Creek Street should not be missed. It is picturesque and a genuine part of Ketchikan's seedy past.

  • 4. Misty Fjords National Monument
    Misty Fjords National Monument, Ketchikan, Alaska

    6o miles by sea from Ketchikan, Misty Fjords National Monument is a spectacular wilderness area. Those with short time in town can add a Misty Fjord Float plane trip to Southeast Sea Kayaks' Orca Cove Trip for the ultimate Ketchikan Day. Visitors staying longer can take a tour boat to the Monument or an extended kayak trip.
