There is a difference in the $50pp Head Tax and a port fee. The $1 port fee is a charge that Ketchikan is charging the cruise line for specific port related services. The $50 pp Head Tax was imposed by the state of Alaska simply for sailing on an Alaska cruise regardless of what port you visit. Those funds are used by the State of Alaska.
