Situated minutes from downtown Ketchikan along the Tongass Narrows...The Ketch is a great option for anyone looking to visit Southeast Alaska. The Ketch offers everything from guided (and self-guided) fishing expeditions, a family getaways, sightseeing trips, business meetings and almost everything in between. Customize your vacation to meet exactly what you are looking for with a mix of fishing, sightseeing, wildlife & relaxation. The Ketch gives visitors direct access to some of the most beautiful wilderness in Alaska along with updated accommodations and excellent service.

The Fishing

Ketchikan is know as the "Salmon Capital of the World" and for good reason...the King Salmon and Silver Salmon runs here are epic. And while the Salmon fishing is legandary you can also experience the thrill of bringing in Halibut, Lingcod or Rockfish!

Whether you’re an expert angler or a beginner The Ketch will get you out and catching fish. They offer both self-guided options for the more experienced & adventurous angler as well as fully-guided fishing for those visitors looking to take advantage of the knowledge & skill of a local fishing guide. If you choose the fully-guided fishing option, your fishing guide will help you find the best location, bait hooks, help reeling in your catch if you need it, and anything else you may need while aboard! And once you are back to the dock The Ketch can help arrange to have your catch processed and prepped for your return flight or to be shipped.

The Experience

The Ketch offers affordable lodging specials, excellent waterfront dining, spectacular views & sunsets & warm hospitality in the heart of beautiful southeast Alaska. The Ketch offers newly refreshed accommodations overlooking the harbor and Tongass Narrows. You don't have to stray too far to enjoy a great meal here either as The Ketch offers fresh local seafood & breathtaking views at their waterfront restaurant. Even Ketchikan locals enjoy escaping the city’s bustling cruise pier to savor the solitude and scenery of the incomparably beautiful setting that The Ketch offers. The Ketch looks forward to sharing their warm spirit of hospitality with you on your Alaska vacation.
