This remote town is a must-visit destination for anyone looking to experience an authentic Alaskan adventure. Ketchikan, a popular port on the southeastern coast of Alaska, is more than a place to stop, but a destination unto itself. It boasts an impressive blend of culture and nature, including a snow-capped, glacier-carved national monument, a variety of wildlife, and the largest collection in the world of totem poles. Ketchikan lies in Tongass National Forest and is a small part of a large island surrounded by numerous islands. This means that you are likely to encounter nature.
Abundant wildlife: On the island, you can find moose, Sitka Blacktail Deer, Black Bears and Mountain Goats. Wildlife is abundant during peak salmon season. During peak salmon season, you will see many animals, including bald eagles and sea lions.
Bald Eagle sightings: Ketchikan is home to many American Bald Eagles, which means you will have a good chance of spotting them. Our majestic National Bird is the Bald Eagle. These birds are amazing hunters, and you can often see them swooping in to grab dinner from the sea.
Whale Watching: You can see whales breaching along the channel but the best way to see them is on the water. Whales are a sight to behold in the waters around Ketchikan. It is exciting to see a whale in action. The experience will last a lifetime.
