Thomas Basin Harbor is the entrance to Ketchikan Creek. The boardwalk along the edges is called Creek Street; inventive, don’t you think?
The City of Ketchikan was originally built around this harbor because Thomas Basin was extremely large and Creek Street was very busy. Because the cruise ships pull in during fishing season, most of the boats find moorage at other harbors. Having the current smash your boat into large stationary objects does not do a lot for the fisherman.
