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
It is still a tax being charged to the cruiser. If I read the net correctly Ketchikan just increased their fees last yeat by two dollars, and now a dollar more.
