Does Ketchikan not have any noise ordinances?

Sunday morning 8/21 at 6:55 am, it sounded like we were being invaded by float planes. Normally I hear them start they routine at 8am or so, but on a Sunday when we get one ship in? What's the deal?

And do these planes have mufflers or anything that kills some of the sound or is it just cool for the passengers to hear a plane that is as loud as humanly possible? I know there is something out there to quiet the planes a bit because not all the planes are loud.
