Just walked around on our own. Went to the beach for petroglyphs, saw some totem poles, climbed Mt. Dewey. Nice place, pleasant day.

This was the only town we visited on the cruise since it's mostly through wilderness areas. Quiet little town with just a few shops, nice hike up many well-built stairs to the top of the hillside overlooking the town and bay. Local Tinglit tribal members put on a dance and cultural show for us and we got to see some beautiful examples of totems and canoes they were building. Read Less

Stikine River Tour - a bit of a letdown after days of spectacular glaciers. It's a long way to get 6 miles away from a glacier. River was clogged with ice so no passage past the ice floats.

Lots of hardware stores. A small simple town. Friendly and safe. Easy walk in to town straight off the ship.

Nice, homey town that has few tourist areas yet but we really liked walking around to see a bit more realistic area. No jewelry stores in sight. Very informative local museum and gift shop.

The town is very small but nice to get off the boat and wander around. The museum is worth it to learn the local history. Had fresh fish and chips lunch at Zak's which was good.

WRANGELL On Sunday we were in Wrangell, a town of around 2,000 that only smaller cruise ships can stop at. The assistant manager at Practical Rent a Car, the only rent-a-car company on the island, picked us up at the dock. The city's one grocery store was closed, but two auto part stores and two hardware stores were open. While Sitka has three gas stations, Wrangell only has two and one of them is owned by the owners of Practical Rent-a-Car. Frankly you can see most everything in Wrangell and drive every road in four hours. This was one of the several locations where ship tours were on school buses. We felt fortunate to have a rental car. Wrangell has a six officer police department. Normally one officer is on duty at a time. The officers also have to be at the airport twice a day when the two Alaska Air flights between Anchorage and Juneau then on to Vancouver with stops in Wrangell, Petersburg and Sitka stop for 15 minutes. The cops do passenger screening. If the one on-duty officer is tied up with an arrest or a bad auto accident, the dispatcher starts calling the five off-duty cops until she finds one to go to the airport. It makes you want to whistle the theme to the Andy Griffith Show. Read Less
