Our Town

Less than a 2-hour flight from Seattle, WA, Ketchikan is the southernmost city in Alaska and has a population of less than 8500. It is located on the west side of Revillagigedo Island and in spite of the fact that it rains here a lot, over a million visitors will pass through Ketchikan in 2019 as it is one of the stops for the massive cruise ship industry.


Misty Fiords National Monument and Wilderness Area

Formed by retreating glaciers over 17,000 years ago, this area was designated a National Monument in 1978. If you are looking to see a remote area of Alaska, this is it! Just one question: When was the last time you saw a sheer rock wall, as high as two Empire State buildings stacked one on top of another, jutting near vertical out of the water?
