Definitely the best of the three ports. We took a float plane ride with Sea Wind Navigation, and they were fabulous all the way through questions, booking, paying, flying, landing in the Misty Fjords, and getting back to the dock. FABULOUS!! They had a van that picked us up and dropped us back at the dock. Then we took a self guided tour of Ketchikan, taking in the fish ladders, eagle center, salmon hatchery, totem center, Creek Street (don't get all excited about the prospect of going there!). We had lunch as a little place called the Haddock Hole, right on the creek of Creek Street. More salmon, but I had halibut. yummy. oh, and all those pesky jewelry stores on the main drag and elsewhere. Try Ketchi-candies on the street where the overhead KETCHIKAN sign is. hmmmm hmmm good.
