Ketchikan's dynamic waterfront is perhaps best seen from the deck of a deluxe, Alaska-built expedition vessel. Notice the town's waterfront on pilings and colorful homes that cling to the rain forest mountainside.
In the South Tongass Narrows, you'll see infamous Creek Street -- the former red-light district -- and cruise by Ketchikan's oldest working cannery and the US Coast Guard station.
Pause for photos of Saxman Native Village and the world's most extensive collection of totems.
You will explore the boundary of the Metlakatla Indian Reserve -- an area teeming with wildlife.
Plying the waters of Nichol's Passage, the captain will maneuver the boat to give the best possible views of any whales, seals, porpoise or bald eagles sighted here.
Learn about Ketchikan's notorious rum runners and fish pirates as you pass Whiskey Cove, Alaska's busiest port, and several seaplane bases. Your cruise ship provides the best photo backdrop.
Tour operates rain or shine but may be canceled by the operator in the event of extremely bad weather or unsuitable conditions. Dress warmly in layers with a wind- and waterproof outer layer; bring gloves, a scarf and a warm hat. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed.
