Take a Day Cruise

Day cruises are becoming more and more popular for travelers to explore the Last Frontier and the community they are visiting. Day cruises let passengers glide through Ketchikan’s scenic waters with views of nearby glaciers, 3,000-foot vertical cliffs, crystal blue waters and abundant wildlife as mere highlights of scenery to behold. These quiet, unhurried vessels give you the time to delight in destinations like Rudyerd Bay, a historic cannery, New Eddystone Rock – a volcanic spire that extends above sea level – and even an active bald eagle’s nest. Day cruises are the perfect option for guests hoping to let someone else do the guiding and spend time on the water for the chance to spot whales, seals and other marine wildlife before returning to land.
