Getting Here and Getting Around
If you are traveling with your own vehicle you may choose to drive to Prince Rupert in Canada and take the ferry to Ketchikan or Juneau. ACA does not provide transportation. Employees must have their own transportation.
Each of our locations have access to a wealth of hiking trails and there are cabins for overnight rentals. There are some great places for beach fires, star gazing and sometimes you can catch the Northern lights. Ketchikan has a nice Rec Center and Juneau has a small aquatic park and a climbing gym. We also partner with some of the other local tour companies to offer inexpensive trades so that summer staff can experience some of the other tours; whale watching, flight seeing, adventure karts, rafting, dog sledding, etc...
