Lovely, bustling city with lots to do. We were supposed to do a helicopter tour to Mendenhall Glacier and a 2 hour trek, but my husband started his cold on this day and we were unable to go. We had booked privately and the company was very good about our cancellation. Unfortunately, there were 4 other larger ships in port and the city was VERY crowded. I wandered around a bit and did some shopping, but couldn't wait to get back on our tendered ship and get away from the masses.
Pouring rain and cold, but nice city. Lots of shopping. We had to cancel yet another excursion do to illness. Would have been better to get away from the crowds by doing an excursion.
Raining, but lovely picturesque town. We walked around the town as our excursion was cancelled due to lack of interest. The Sitka National Historic Park and Totem Pole exhibit (if you are interested in this) was fantastic. We didn't have enough time there and wished we had gone there first.
Not much to see in this town, it is very small but it's economy is based on cruise tourism. We were due to take an active excursion via Catamaran to Haines, but my husband developed a cold and wasn't feeling up to it. We ended up on the street car tour of the town which gave the history of Skagway and was really entertaining. We didn't want to join the masses wandering through the shops, so this was perfect. It was inexpensive, short (maybe 2 hours) and interesting. If you want something quick, it's perfect.
