KVB moves offices

The Ketchikan Visitors Bureau marketing and administration office has moved to a new location.

The new address is 50 Front Street, Suite 203, the former location of the State Legislative Information Office. This is the new mailing and physical address for Ketchikan Visitors Bureau. Email addresses, phone and fax numbers remain the same.

Services at the Berth 2 visitor center on the downtown dock will continue through the summer season. That building will close permanently on September 28th for the City of Ketchikan’s phase two of the Berths 1 and 2 reconstruction project.

The visitors bureau expects to keep the Berth 3 visitor center open through winter.
