Enjoy a guided historical walking tour of Creek Street and the Fishing Fleet, book ended by drinks at the Fishermen's favorite watering holes. Learn about the colorful events that have shaped Ketchikan, The Salmon Capitol of the World and Alaska's First City. After a round at the "Shipwreck Bar", we'll stroll through town to Creek Street then down to the docks to learn about the world famous fishing fleet and see the boats and crews up close preparing for their next catch. We'll finish at the infamous Potlatch Bar for more drinks and stories. You will be guided by a Fisherman who lives on the Fishing Fleet’s Dock in Ketchikan. Your guide has first hand knowledge of the Fishing Fleet and their favorite watering holes.

Met the McFaddens at an over the water, indoor/outdoor (only one in Ketchikan) grill and bar. They twisted my arm in to going on their walking tour of the fishing fleet and pubs in town. It turned out to be the most fun, and informative tour I took during my 2 weeks in Alaska!
