Ketchikan, Alaska's “First City”, is the gateway to The Inside Passage.

The Port & Harbors Department operates and maintains five boat harbors: Bar Harbor, Thomas Basin, Casey Moran, Knudson Cove, and Hole-In-The-Wall; the Port of Ketchikan; and three launch ramps.

Upon arrival, contact the Harbormasters on VHF channels 16 or 73 (preferred), and stop by the Harbormaster office to register.

The Harbormaster office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
