Port of Call: Ketchikan, Alaska

By

Our third port of call, Ketchikan, is one of the most popular cruise ship destinations in Alaska's Inside Passage. We arrived in Ketchikan early Wednesday morning, and although it was overcast, no rain was expected. Since the town is situated in a rain forest and known as the rainiest city in the United States, averaging about 160 inches a year, we felt very blessed with the day's weather forecast.

Located on Revillagigedo Island and rich in commercial fishing resources, Ketchikan is proud to be called the "Salmon Capital of the World." It also bears the nickname "First City" because it is the southernmost city in southeast Alaska and often the first Alaskan port for northbound ships.
