The only cruise ship I know of that tenders at Sitka. The downtown area is an easy walk from the tender and full of history. There's an Orthodox Christian cathedral right in the middle of main street; don't miss going inside. We also went to a dance presentation of Russian folk music; all the dancers are volunteers and work in town at a variety of jobs. Another part of the tour includes going to a state-operated history of museum with amazing artifacts of the Tlingit tribe. The one and only drug store in Sitka is worth a stop; there's a '50s soda fountain of all things! Since it's the only drug store on the island, it's stocked as good as, if not better, than any major chain in the Lower 48!
