Visitor Statistics

Each year thousands of people from around the world visit Ketchikan aboard the magnificent ships that cruise the Inside Passage from April through September. Each day we see from one to five ships tied up at the docks or anchored in the Tongass Narrows heading north or south.

For your convenience and interest, we have provided the 2017 KVB Cruise Ship Calendar (PDF) as well as a listing of ship statistics for the individual cruise ships that sail through Alaskan waters.*
