Welcome to Ketchikan

The southernmost major city in Alaska, Ketchikan is situated on the shoreline of the Tongass Narrows near the beginning of the Inside Passage, the scenic marine highway that connects the Puget Sound to the Gulf of Alaska. A waterfront city backed by steep, forested wilderness terrain, Ketchikan captures the grand beauty of Alaska for visitors who come by air and on hundreds of cruise ship port calls yearly. Tourists enjoy a historical downtown area, the world’s largest collection of standing totem poles, great fishing, and many opportunities to explore the surrounding rainforests and misty fiords in search of the abundant birds and wildlife that make the Ketchikan area their home.
