With 3 other ships in it was very crowded. We tendered, but that was not a problem. If you did not go out of town all you saw were souvenir stores, all with the same junk. We took the duck tour to get out of town, which was ok.
We booked the whale watching, salmon bake for 2:30pm. arrived at meeting spot by 1:45, only to be told at 2:25 that it was cancelled. Found a kiosk that took us whale watching at 2:30, but boat was very small and crowded, so they transferred us to a larger private group. Stressful day, but whales and eagles were worth it.
