You're on it and don't know it until someone informs you. The waterfront center & the 41 paved miles of road, you may visit. But that's only 1-2% of the Island. You need to fly around in a float plane, or better still a Helicopter ride w Randy of Ketchikan Helicopters to really see it. Amazing plea ranging from sea... More

Amazing peaceful retreat for a week! Stayed at a Forest Service cabin with two old friends! Only saw two floatplanes and a partiel old beer bottle in six days!

This is a place that can fire the imagination and cause you to want to stay. Many have come to visit and stayed. The best part of this island is that you can walk into the rain forest on 17+ trails and enjoy the wilderness.

Toured around in our boat. Lots of places to anchor, spend night on boat. There is a trail NE corner. Goes to a couple of small lakes, we didn't go there. Should have

I live on the Island. Everyday, I see something spectacular. I am looking out my window at Rotary Beach right now. The eagles are flying over. A few minutes ago, I walked 20 feet from my door and collected a handful of berries. I have been around much of this great state. Revillagigedo Island ranks pretty high.

This island is totally awesome. It sits on the edge of Tongass National Forest. It is so loverly -- the trees on one side, the bay on the other -- so peaceful, calming, and soothing. I totally recommend that people visit this island [where the cities of Ketchikan and Saxman are located]

Head out to Ward for a lovely trail walk. Hope for a sunny day! South on the road go to Rotary -Buggy Beach. Interesting stones/ rocks. Herring Cove will have salmon and bears.

We rented motorcycles (Panhandle Motorcycle Adventures) and did a trip around the island - actually, back and forth since there is no "around". The lake in the interior is worth a gander. Drop in on Herring Cove to see some salmon making there way up the river. And at the other end, wind along the roads to Totem Bight and... More

Small friendly town, but too many bars and liquor stores for my taste, and too much alcohol being consumed for it's own good, unfortunately! Alaska has the highest per capita consumption of alcohol. I lived there for 14 years, in the late 1960's, till 1975. There are far fewer bars downtown now, and replaced by endless jewelry stores and tourist... More
