Ketchikan, AK – Bar Harbor North/South

Bar Harbor North/South are the two biggest marinas in Ketchikan. They are located about a mile north of the downtown area, but convenient to grocery shopping, laundromat, marine supply stores, restaurants, and other services. Both marinas are “working” marinas that hot-berth transients into spots vacated by long-term tenants (such as fishing boats).

There’s a Safeway one block south, as well as a liquor store in the same mall. Adjacent to the marina you’ll find a laundromat. Fuel docks are north and south of town, and there’s maintenance nearby. For ground transportation there are taxis, Uber/Lyft, and the city bus. Cell coverage–AT&T, Verizon, GCI, T-Mobile.
