Ketchikan is the the fifth largest city in Alaska with a population of about 8,000.  It is a lumber, fishing, shipyard, cruise ship town.  It also is the transportation hub of the lower SE area with an airport and terminal for the Alaska Ferry that heads to Bellingham, WA.

We hope to arrive in Ketchikan around June 12, 2011.  Our plan is to clear customs and then head off into the Misty Fjords National Monument, circumnavigating Revillagigedo Island.  More on that later!
