"On the whale watching tour we were able to get MUCH closer than the cruise ship whale  watching boat tour, much to the envy of some of our fellow passengers as we learned later while conversing with them!!! We captured some phenomenal video of 3 whales breaching at once...and at a 'natural' close-up view, not zoomed in."

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.
