Revilla Getaway


May 04, 2004

Ketchikan, AK - The Alaska Marine Highway System offered a One-Day Getaway - a trip around Revillagegedo Island Monday which lasted approximately 12 hours. The M/V Taku departed Ketchikan Monday morning taking its passengers around Revilla Island through some of the most beautiful scenery in the Inside Passage - including the famed Misty Fjord National Monument.

One-Day Getaways are something the Marine Highway tries to offer on a regular basis throughout the year. "When we realized the Taku would be in port from Sunday evening until Monday night, we decided this would be a good opportunity to take another day trip around Revilla," said Sharon Gaiptman, marketing manager for the System. "While a weekend is always preferable, we wanted to take advantage of the time the Taku is in Ketchikan rather than not offering the trip this year," she added.
