Wildlife, City & Saxman Native Village Tour
Saxman Native Village
One of the most popular sites in Ketchikan is the Saxman Totem Village. This is Ketchikan’s largest totem park with 29 authentic totems carved by Tlingit and Haida natives. The poles were moved here from the original site in the 1930's and have been restored by native carvers. These totem poles are a must see when visiting Ketchikan.
Herring Bay & Wildlife
The next part of your journey will continue on to Herring Bay, a quaint area that takes you far away from the crowds and people. A small inlet cove that will allow sights and sounds of the beautiful wildlife that only Ketchikan can offer. During Salmon season, Black Bears, Eagles, Herons and Seals are often spotted in this area. Be sure to keep your eyes wandering and your cameras close!
See eagles fishing for salmon in front of Ketchikan's salmon canneries (May through June). See a salmon ladder and watch salmon spring from the rushing water enroute to the spawning grounds (July through September).
Your last stop of the day will be at Creek street, where your guide will talk about the ladies of the night of years ago. You’ll then have the option to be dropped off here or we will return you to your ship.
