Wanted something different to do, so after the Duck tours, we took the Silver line to Rotary Beach stop and enjoyed searching for starfish and other creatures. Ask your bus driver where the pick up is before getting off! It will cost $2 per person...More

This beach is not far from town, 3 miles or so, and has amazing views. Great beach area for sun bathing, picnicking, and beachcombing. Kids love the pool for swimming and wading! Seems like I've seen Killer Whales passing closer to this beach than anywhere...More

Rotary Beach is a quiet, little beach where it is perfect to relax and get away from it all. We enjoyed walking and looking for shells and interesting pieces of drift wood while in Ketchikan. We actually missed it and drove by the first time....More

What a great way to spend time with family and friends. Start a little fire on one of the driftwood pieces or have a picnic. It's a great place to unwind and relax! The views, spectacular!
