Ketchikan, AK

Our first port was Ketchikan. Ketchikan was to be the home of the "Bridge to Nowhere" that would connect Ketchikan to Gravina Island across Tongass Narrows. Ketchikan receives an average of 153 inches of rain per year.

Their web site is here and the wikipedia article is here.

While there we took the the "Lighthouse, Totems and Eagles" cruise from Shore Excursions Group. They met us literally at the end of the ramp from the Solstice. We left at 8:00 and returned at 11:15. It was not clear from the web but after a bus ride the rest or the excursion is on a boat. It's a real authentic tour on an old boat (24 people capacity). They offer free snacks and drinks. They stop several times for photo ops and the crew will take your picture for you.

The bus driver recommended us to Annabelle's just across the street from the pier. We tried it and it was great food and service.
