Looking for an authentic Alaskan experience? There’s no better way to learn about a place than by drinking with the locals at Ketchikan’s most historic bars! The Ketchikan Pub Crawl takes you on a 90-minute walking tour of the town to the local watering holes. You’ll learn why this fisherman’s town is famous for “doing business at the bar” as you sample signature drinks at each stop along the way. At the Ketchikan bars you visit, you’ll be able to chat with locals or listen to your guides as they tell tales of the prohibition era in the Salmon Capital of the world. As you near the end of your 3/4 mile walking tour, you’ll explore the famous Creek Street. In addition, the Ketchikan Pub Crawl even features some live local music! So come thirsty, and experience Ketchikan the local’s way.
The Ketchikan Pub Crawl begins with convenient pick up at your cruise ship, then you’ll follow the colorful local guide to the first of the Ketchikan bars you’ll visit. Choose between a few selected drinks and enjoy your tasty beverages as you hear about the history of alcohol in Alaska’s first city, all the way back to the lumber days. You’ll then continue on to two more pubs for a total of 90 minutes spent exploring Ketchikan’s bars. Learn about the first and second prohibitions and the days when the red light district was in full swing as your enthusiastic guides share their knowledge. And perhaps even lean over to your neighbor at the bar to hear what the locals have to say about their favorite pubs! Your Ketchikan Pub Crawl ends just off of Creek Street for live music & more cocktails. At just 90 minutes long, this is the perfect tour to wet your whistle and still have time to explore more of Ketchikan on your own!
