Port & Harbors

Ketchikan’s “First City” is the gateway to the inside passage. Come visit Ketchikan’s harbors, watch the wildlife, go fishing, enjoy the Native culture, and spend time shopping.

The Port & Harbors Department operates and maintains six boat harbors: Bar Harbor South, Bar Harbor North, 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 our new harbormaster office to register. Harbormasters are on duty seven days a week, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., May through September. The harbormaster office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is located in the parking lot above Bar Harbor North. The new building has public restrooms and showers for your convenience. There is a public telephone, and Internet access is available upon request.

Ketchikan has three fuel docks. Two are located south of town, near the Coast Guard Base, and one to the north end of town, across from the airport. There are tidal grids at Thomas Basin and Bar Harbor. Reservations are required for the use of grids. The gear float is located in Bar Harbor South and is available at no charge. There are two cranes and a hoist available. The harbors are in close proximity to 72-hour parking lots, restrooms, showers, laundry facilities and grocery stores. Public transportation includes a local bus route, taxis, airport shuttles, and a water taxi.
