Only cruise ship there so town not overwhelmed with people. If you like historical type of walks, you can just go by yourself; there is a free shuttle into town. The old cemetery, the Russian cathedral ($5), the national historical park with totems and exhibits and the bishop's house all were visited. Read Less

Loved Sitka, a nice little town with quite a bit of shopping. We enjoyed seeing the Russian church and Russian Bishop's house.

Free shuttle took us to the city center which had the usual shops, but the old Russian church (go inside - photography is allowed) was a highlight.

Sitka is a lovely town. A must for everyone to visit is Totem Park, Alaska Raptor Center and Fortress of the Bears Sanctuary.

Excellent side trips to Bear Fortress and the Raptors. Booked through independent operator (Tribal Tours) which was excellent and less expensive than booking through the cruise line.

Nice Totem Pole museum and walk in the forest at the Park Service complex. Sitka is very walkable but only negative was that prices of everything was stratospheric.

don't skip exploring this little town because you don't want to take the bus to get there. The bus drivers are funny and informative and keep you entertained for the 15 minute ride. Once in town, there are some great shops and an amazing church to go see. We were lucky enough to have the Deacon there and he told us the story about when it burnt down and what it took to rebuild. Simply amazing. Read Less

Everybody's favorite port! Never enough time in this port. Where is the yarn shop? Is it still in business? I couldn't find it this trip.

Beautiful island. We hiked the Mosquito Cove Trail in the Starrigavan Park. We walked from port to park on main road - 45 minutes one-way, flat walk. Hike in park was fairly easy but has lots of steps up and down. Very pretty and lots of locals out hiking on trail too. Not touristy. Cruise offered bus ride to park, but found $85 each a steep price. So we got our exercise for the day, but after being on ship the whole day before, we enjoyed the walking. Read Less

We took the designated shuttle to the Raptor Center and the Fortress of the Bear. Bothe places were wonderful, in spite of the constant rain that day. Shuttle was a nice ride with pleasant staff.

Really enjoyed visiting this port, which was a lot bigger than expected. Walked around town, at a Filipino restaurant (lots of crew there as well), and overall a nice shopping experience with great weather.

Take the bus from port to downtown, and back. National Historic Park is easy walk, maybe 15 minutes, follow signs along harbor. Bishops House must see, take the free tour.
