WHAT YOU VISIT

Ketchikan Photo Safari
Photographers and outdoor enthusiasts will thrill to an excursion designed for the novice, as well as the professional. Led by one of three local photographers, your guide will share area history, facts and stories as you travel from six to eight different sites in a Ford transit passenger van through town and into the wild. Enjoy a unique perspective as you visit off-the-beaten path locations with your local guide. One is a jazz musician, one an elected Assemblyman and one a retired freelancer for the United Kingdom press; each is passionate for sharing the best photo opportunites with you.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
From cell phones to point and shoots to sophisticated SLR cameras, get ready to capture that magical moment that's worth a thousand words. Some of the sites you'll shoot include the rainforest, totem poles, beach, mountains, creeks, waterfalls, and the chance of wildlife encounters.

SNACK
Enjoy hot coffee and a gourmet cookie while photographing the boats at historic Bar Harbor.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
When you venture off the beaten path, you'll have unparalleled views of Ketchikan's dramatic waterfalls, lush forests and glassine bays.

Special Notes:
