We walked to the National Historical Park and then took a $10 shuttle to the Fortress of the Bear and to the Raptor Center. Beautiful town. A lot of walking.

Spectacularly beautiful city. Our favorite of all Southeast Alaska ports. Similar to Seward in beauty and views. Many bald eagles, and great drive up the mountain.

Possible to walk most places after shuttle downtown from ship. We walked through the National Forest and then to the Raptor Center. Great information and beautiful birds up close. Some folks took advantage of the low tides and walked out and played with the shoreline. Bear repair facility also accessible without doing a ship excursion. I prefer birds to bears, so didn't take the five mile trek. Read Less

Sitka is beautiful! We made a short stop at the Russian Bishop's House but did not take the guided half hour tour. We visited the Sitka Sound Center and had a blast exploring the touch tanks. We spent time on the beach and walked through the Sitka National Historical Park. We had fabulous weather! If you are in Sitka on a sunny day, spend as much time as you can outdoors. We grabbed Subway sandwiches for lunch because we wanted to maximize our time outside in the natural beauty. Read Less

The Raptor Center in Sitka should be a must see while you are visiting. The work that the center does to restore the injured raptors to health and ultimately release back into the wild is awesome.

I went into town and visited the Russian graveyard, museum, and old church. I also did a little bit of shopping and took tons of pictures! Very enjoyable!

We walked around the town and shopped. Very nice, clean town. We ate lunch on the balcony of a little corner hotel/restaraunt. It was delicious. Nice quaint town.

Our travel agent supplied free tickets to the Raptor Center. We took a taxi over and walked back with stops at the Historical Park and along the walking path near the water's edge. We also visited the downtown area before returning to the ship. Sitka is one of our favorite places in Alaska. The beauty of the bay and surrounding mountains as you sail in or out is very beautiful. The only drawback is that they now have a new dock that is several miles from the downtown area. In the past we anchored just off the downtown area and were tendered in. The view from the anchored ship was much more interesting than that from the new dock. Read Less
