lifetime shot taken on one of our 2015 sightseeing trips!

 (Orcinus orca)  

You may have the chance to see and photograph one yourself. Depending on the time of year you are in Ketchikan.

The Orcinus orca is the largest member of the dolphin family. It lives in small groups called "pods," which are usually made up of relatives & family members ranging from juveniles (called calves) to adult males (called bulls). 

Killer whales in Alaska are either residents or transients. We have a Pod that is residents to southeast Ketchikan Alaska and know by the name Crinkle fin.

Killer whales are 25 to 30 feet in length. They often navigate at the surface, spewing every so often as they breathe and swim. They are sometimes seen jumping out of the water, as in the photo above. Ask about our group rates. Discount prices apply to 10 or more guests. 

Bald Eagle

(Haliaeetus leucocephalus) 

The bald eagle is the largest resident bird of prey in Alaska with a wingspan of up to 8 feet and weighing in at between 8 to 14 pounds.

Found only in North America, bald eagles are more abundant in Alaska than anywhere else in the US. The Alaska population is estimated to be around 30,000 birds 

Humpback Whale's

These whales live in the seas around the world. They travel unbelievable distances every year and have one of the longest migrations of any creature on the planet. Some populations swim 5,000 miles from tropic breeding regions to colder, plentiful feeding grounds. Humpback whales feed on small fish and shrimp-like krill, filtering vast volumes of ocean water through their baleen plates that act as a sieve.

The humpback whale earns its common name from the distinctive hump on its back. Its long pectoral fins inspired its scientific name, Megaptera, which means “big-winged.” Humpback whales are a favorite of whale watchers―they are often 

surface actively, jumping out of the water and slapping the surface, creating a gigantic splash.

Who knows what wildlife may be out there on a fishing charter! Witch, ever you choose a fishing charter or a sightseeing adventure!

See in person how a good portion of the town and streets are built right above the water on pilings. See the commercial fishing fleet. 

If you go fishing and choose to send your catch home, please remember this:

Wild Alaskan salmon is the healthiest salmon possible. Think of this when you are eating your prize catch you had filleted, vacuum packed and flash frozen shipped home there is no comparing the quality, or price to anything you can get in a store!
