The Anchor Inn by the Sea offers private vacation rentals suites in a convenient location only 4 miles from downtown in one of the best shoreline fishing and whale watching areas in Ketchikan. The properties are two beautiful homes along the shore with guest suites as close as you can get to the ocean. Every suite has the same beautiful, unobstructed, view of the ocean.
The wildlife is simply amazing here. We guarantee that while you are here you will see some type of wildlife everyday of your stay. The view from your window is an active wildlife show and photo opportunities are endless, with otter, seals, and porpoises frequently seen playing near the shoreline. Eagles nest close by and are often seen perched on a pole near the water or pulling a salmon from the ocean. Visit our photo gallery to view photos of wildlife in our backyard.
The Inn is within close walking distance of Mountain Point and only a short drive to Herring Cove where shoreline fishing is the best in the Ketchikan area. Other popular attractions close by are; Rotary Beach, Rainforest Sanctuary, Alaska Canopy Zip Line, Saxman Village & Tribal House, and various hiking trails.
