Ketchikan is known for its sport fishing (five species of salmon and halibut), native culture, nature trails, and wildlife. We encourage you to visit the Ketchikan Visitors Bureau for activities and calendar of events in Ketchikan and the Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce for more information about our area. You can also visit the Prince of Wales Chamber of Commerce to learn more about our neighbors on Prince of Wales Island.
Ketchikan is the “First City” in the Inside Passage. It is a two-hour flight on Alaska Airlines north of Seattle, Washington, or 30 hours north of Bellingham, Washington and six hours north of Prince Rupert, British Columbia by the Alaska Marine Highway ferry system. You can use Ketchikan as your hub to many outlying areas and communities including Misty Fjords National Monument, Prince of Wales Island, Wrangell and Petersburg, Alaska.
