From the downtown area, one can drive north 18 miles to the end of the road to view the bay and other nature places. Driving south from the downtown, one can drive 13 miles until the end of the road where you can view secluded coves and other nature place. The drive was enjoyable and relaxing with the scenery breath... More

The Island has multiple options for activities. Ketchikan, Saxman,and several pocket communities are located on the Island. Many activities have cultural interest and the Totem Art work is present in multiple locations.

The Island is massive compared to the inhabited area along the coast. I love the fact there is such a variety of wildlife sharing the Island with the Ketchikan peoples. Bear, mountain goats, deer, salmon, whales, seal, porpoises, eagles, birds galore, flowers of every color. What a great place to live.

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.

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.
