Overview of your Ketchikan tour:

There is so much to see and do in Ketchikan you might decide to come back again. Then you might decide to stay. I did! Everything I love is here: Snow-covered mountains and vast temperate rain forests full of huge trees, birds, and animals. Deer, wolves, bears, eagles, whales, salmon, and halibut. I mean -- how could I not love this place? I would delight in showing it to you and telling you all about it. Ketchikan also includes a huge ancient native tradition. Totem poles, woodcarvers, weavers, and dancers. My wife weaves and I myself am an amateur carver. I will show you my hand-forged carving tools, and demonstrate their use. And I can show you the work of some of the greatest carvers living today. Ketchikan is a small town, with an active arts community, and a long, and often amusing history. I will show you a wee bit of all of these things that I hold dear to my heart or we can concentrate on the things that interest you! ***Norwegian Cruise Line Passengers Please see note in Itinerary below

I conduct small tours in my personal minibus - a 2015 Toyota Sienna. There is one driver seat and six passenger seats: 1 up front, 2 bucket seats second row, and 3 row seats in the third row (the middle one is for a skinny person). I can fold away a back seat or two if we need to carry a wheelchair or scooter (I am happy to do so).
