Just enjoyed the national Park and totem poles. Then we meandered over to the raptor center. Great day.

Nice little town, we had decided to shop there. I wish that we would have visited the hatchery. You had to take a shuttle into town from the ship

It was warm and sunny. We took the free shuttle to the visitor center. Used the wifi and walked along the water to the Totem Pole Park. At the office we got sheets to explain about each pole. We walk back via shops, stopped for coffee ... Read More

Sitka was a pretty cool small town that reminded us of Friday Harbor in the San Juans. Having more time helped but we managed to hit the entire downtown in just a couple hours. I don’t have any particular drive to return to Sitka but it ... Read More

Really beautiful area, and lovely town (former capital of the Russian Territory, then the Alaska Territory), with a terrific nature hike &/or bike trail through a lovely forest, if you choose one of the tours that include it.

Sitka was also a great place to watch whales. We took a small boat excursion called the Sitka Marine Adventure. Our pilot was Sonny. He was extremely competent. We saw a sea otter as well as whales. Sitka is THE place to buy Russian products. I bought three stunning sets of nesting dolls, in Russian, "matroyshkas." If you are a collector, you will be in heaven here. Besides the very high-quality collectible nesting dolls, there are plenty of less-expensive sets to buy as souvenirs. Nowhere else stocked the quality and quantity of nesting dolls we saw here. We saw one 50-doll set priced at over $1000. The stores carried loads of other Russian products as well. Read Less

Loved it. There is a lovely walk close to the ship through a fantastic old growth forest with many totems along the way. There is a totem interpretative centre at the start. Through the forest, you then walk across a bridge and are almost across the street from the Raptor Centre, a small rehab centre for flightless birds of prey. Quite small, but interesting. From there took a cab to the Fortress of the Bear; another rehab centre, with bears in large tanks from a former pulp mill company. They are in the process of building a nicer entrance and viewing area. It too is a small attraction; with bears in captivity. It is against the law to release them back into the wild . Had an excellent, if rapid fire, tour with a guide through the Russian bishop's house, and wandered the town a bit. By the time we got to the Russian Orthodox Church, it was closed.....at 3 pm on a cruise ship day! Read Less

The lack of time in port is disappointing and was expressed by all in our group as well as many other passengers we overheard discussing.
