Stephen P.

Ketchikan, AK, United States

I am a retired Contracting Officer (that means I've probably spent YOUR MONEY) with the US Forest Service with 20+ years working in Southeast Alaska's Tongass National Forest.

I've lived in Ketchikan, AK since 1991 and in Sitka, AK for six years before that. I'm an active on-air jazz disc jockey at the local public radio station, a patron of the local arts scene, and just generally an affable person with knowledge of the local area, its history and what life is like in Ketchikan and Southeast Alaska. My style of tour guiding is relaxed yet informative.

A Recent Review of this guide

Stephen seemed to know everything about Ketchikan- from the historical perspective to the cultural. He drove us all through the city and into its outskirts, pointing out all the relevant sites. He has a very personable and pleasant demeanor and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

I am not permitted to drive my vehicle onto the cruise ship dock. If you arrive by cruise ship, I will meet you as you exit your vessel and we will walk (a few hundred feet) to where my vehicle is parked.
