An island city, Ketchikan is accessible only by air or sea. Ketchikan is the southern most city in Alaska and is roughly two hours north of Seattle by Air. The airport is located offshore on Gravina Island so air travelers connect to Ketchikan via a short ferry ride. Ketchikan is also served by the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry System. Travel time is 37 hours from Bellingham, Washington or 6 hours from Prince Rupert, British Columbia. Traveler's originating elsewhere in Alaska can also disembark at Ketchikan on southbound ferry routes.
Eagleview Hostel is located on the east end of 5th avenue just past Adams street. Guests can reach Eagleview via city bus from the AHMS ferry or the Airport Ferry by taking the Green Line and asking the driver to stop at 5th & Jefferson (not a marked bus stop). Please note that Green Line service is only once an hour and passengers should consult KGBTS for schedule and hours of operation.
If you are travelling by car, taxi, or on foot from either the Airport ferry terminal or the AMHS ferry terminal, please consult Mapquest. Please note that this Mapquest map originates at the airport ferry and the AMHS terminal is en route along Tongass Highway. Eagleview is 1.87 miles from the Airport ferry and .94 miles from the AMHS ferry but walkers beware that this short distance includes very steep uphill stretches.
