Tour Overview

You'll depart your ship and begin your guided tour with a scenic motorcoach ride in and around Ketchikan. You'll see Alaska's busiest waterfront, bustling with floatplanes and boats, and drive by infamous Creek Street, Ketchikan's former red-light district during the Gold Rush. Then, you'll travel along beautiful North Tongass Highway, passing salmon canneries and a pulp mill that was once the largest of its kind in the world.

After your city tour, your guide will introduce you to Totem Bight State Park, where an awesome sight awaits. Established in 1938, this unique park offers you a glimpse into the native Tlingit and Haida Indian cultures. Start by walking along a winding trail through a forest of mighty hemlock. You'll come to an old Indian campsite filled with colorful totem poles, each one telling its own fascinating tale. Totem carving is a time-honored craft, passed down over generations. Native carvers, using traditional hand-made tools, recreated the totems, restoring those that were badly damaged by time and weather.

Explore further to see a replica of a 19th century Clan House, or community house. These structures served as homes to several families at once, with each headed by a house chief of the same lineage. Once you step inside, you'll learn more about the rich Native Alaskan culture.

After your hour-long visit, it's time to enjoy some hot chocolate, coffee, a cookie and some shopping at the Alaska Totem Trading Company before re-boarding your motorcoach for your return ride to town and your next stop in your adventure - the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show.

You're in for a rip-roaring good time with this celebration of a bygone era. Southeast Alaska's rich logging history comes to life during this 90-minute show, with its thrilling display of skill. You'll get to see world champion athletes compete in springboard chopping, buck sawing, axe throwing, log rolling and the thrilling 50-foot tree climb, while your colorful host delights the crowd with stories of lumberjack lore.

After a day of fun and culture, your tour concludes as you take the short walk back to your ship at your leisure.
