CREEK STREET CANOE JOURNEY- MAP
1 Hour Tour
PADDLE UP HISTORIC CREEK STREET Join us for a historical canoe journey up Ketchikan Creek in our 36-foot Native Canoe with our resident Native Guide.You will paddle from Thomas Basin up Ketchikan Creek and view Ketchikan’s most popular tourist destination from the water as the Tlingit residents and bootleggers did around the turn of the century. You may catch a glance of an Eagle, a kingfisher or a salmon (July- August) or our resident harbor seals. The creek is Ketchikan’s main spawning stream for four species of salmon.
The history of Creek Street is long and colorful. The Tlingit’s used Ketchikan Creek as a summer fish camp that later became their residence when frontiersmen began occupying Ketchikan.It was known as Ketchikan’s Red Light District in the 1920’s. During the pioneering gold rush heyday, there were up to 20 bordellos to cater to the fisherman, bootleggers and gold miners to name a few. The most famous of these bordellos is Dolly’s House, which is now a museum. Your guide will point out all these historic features.
After your paddle you will disembark on a dock at the estuary and then you can stroll along the boardwalk to visit shops, art galleries and the historic Dolly’s House. End your tour at the Alaska Eagle Arts Gallery (#5 Creek Street) to pick up your Canoe Tee shirt designed by Marvin Oliver.
The Ketchikan Creek Street Canoe Journey is a must-see for anyone visiting the scenic town of Ketchikan. Also be sure to check out the infamous Married Man’s Trail and the famous Salmon Ladder while visiting Creek Street!
