Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
We decided at this port just to walk town and shop. Went to Creek Street and had some beer at Fish Pirates. Ketichan has lots of Totem poles and so we actually took the bus($2.00 round trip for adults, kids under 12 are free) up to the Totem State Park. It was beautiful there. We got a park brochure which explained about the different poles and it felt like we were the only ones there so it was nice. Definitely worth it. Beautiful views of the water.

Ziplining Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Ziplining was one of the greatest experiences I have had. It was so exhilarating. This is something you must do even if you are a little nervous about it. When you get on the bus to go over, they scare you a little with the rules and stuff, but it quickly goes away. Our guides made us feel so comfortable and were fun to be with. We cracked jokes the whole time. Definitely recommend this excursion. Tell Ted and I said hi.

White Pass Scenic Railway Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Beautiful scenery for pictures enthusiasts. Some people were saying the walk form port to town was far, but I enjoyed it. After the train ride we walked into through town to get some food and drinks. We headed over the Red Onion, but unfortunately so did everyone else. It was packed and did not feel like waiting. So we headed down the street to Skagway Brewing. Definitely a good choice. Since we had such a large group(23) they set us up outside on the back area and it was great. The kids could run around and release all that energy from being on the train ride. If you are in for trying their beers, go for the Spruce Tip Blonde, if I could get it shipped to me I would. after that we did a little more walking around town and some shopping before heading back to the boat.

We were suppose to take the kids on their excursion here, the Pirate ship, but something happened to the boat and it ended up being cancelled. Big bummer as the kids were so excited for it. We ported here on a Sunday night so there was little to do. We took a taxi into town and the driver told us the Victoria is Canada's Miami. Definitely looked like it with all the nice card driving around. Took a walk through town and by the harbor the headed back to the boat.
