About
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. Fun, entertainment, drinks, history and a few tall tales make this a “must do” tour while visiting Ketchikan! As a bonus, your guide will also be your photographer along the scenic walking tour so you can share and enjoy the memories for years to come!

Coho Queen for the day!
Jul. 2019
Terry and Judy are excellent guides. I learned to fish for salmon, filet, drop crab pots etc. etc. I also became quite acquainted with the fun and quirky fishing town. i have had lots of world trips etc and this Alaska trip was amongst the top of the list. They are so fun and become companions as well as instructors. Hope to do it again. cheers

Fun Tour- New Friends
Aug. 2019 • Solo
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! I really felt I had gained a lot of unique knowledge and perspective about the Alaskan fishing community, town history, and special photo opportunities during the tour. Most of all I had made some new friends of the tour guides and owners, the McFaddens- who truly make this tour a unique and special opportunity get in to the real personality of this special community.
