This is a private owned business, it was as much about the owner's car collection as it was totem poles. Felt more like an elementary school field trip than a place I'd choose on my own. This park was chosen for us as part of...More

Potlatch Totem Park is located directly next door to Totem Bight Totem Park and worth a quick walk through. The park only has a few totem poles that are not as well maintained as Totem Bight. But the park does have a great carving hut...More

We visited the totem pole park and got brief stories of what they were about. It was interesting but didn't take much time at all.

Interesting and informative. Mr Ed was passionate about the native culture. A good tour with a humorous and well informed guide. A good half day trip off a cruise.

We are going to be in Ketchikan from 6am to 1:30 pm. Knowing my crew of not-so-early risers i am somewhat leery of us using public transport safely. i would like to see both Potlatch and Totem Bight. The cruise tour is expensive and doesn't leave much time in either place. is there another tour company that would get me out there (and back in time!) and let me experience both places? There is a longer viatour tour that says it goes to totem bight but doesn't include Potlatch. Aren't they right next to each other? Can i sneak away and see both? Could we just take a taxi?
