      This feisty town has its share of fishing boats, pleasure craft, kayaks, and seaplanes. They all need water to go anywhere. But now Ketchikan has something that can go everywhere – and take you on the city's best adventure. The "Duck" may be an unconventional way to get around, but you'll never forget this ride – or your guide who entertains you with lively and lusty frontier tales.

      Touring by land, you'll see why this town is "The Salmon Capital of the World." View the salmon hatchery and Ketchikan Creek, thronged with salmon making their way upstream. The salmon ladder, a step-like structure, helps them navigate up the rushing waterfall. Watching these jumping salmon, you'll be amazed at their single-minded determination to make it back to their native streambed to spawn.

      Next, get ready to splash into the harbor. Your guide becomes a marine pilot and your vehicle transforms into a boat – how amazing is that? The Duck's plunge puts you front and center for great waterfront views, tales of the town's fishing heritage, and a chance to spot eagles, sea lions, or whales. But we'll understand if your favorite wild thing on this tour is the Duck – and the big splash you made in Ketchikan.
