Icy Strait Culinary Tour Excursion Reviews

Indulge in the local cuisine of the Icy Strait; taste smoked salmon and crab as you learn about the traditional methods of preparing and preserving the ocean's finest catches.
In Alaska's Wilderness Kitchen was a great.
In Alaska's Wilderness Kitchen was a great. We learned about the five kinds of salmon and how to prep and cook the fish. The most unique thing was halibut sausage. It takes like real sausage.

With the Joy in port at the same time, Icy Strait Point was very crowded, and everything seemed even more overpriced than the rest of Alaska. We attended the In Alaska's Wildest Kitchen excursion through NCL, and it was interesting, but not nearly worth what it cost in my opinion. We then walked the Memorial Trail into Hoonah, where we had been told we could catch the shuttle back one-way. First of all, there's basically nothing of interest in Hoonah, or if there was, it certainly wasn't obvious. Secondly, the shuttle system was a big cluster. TWICE, we had a shuttle appear only to be informed moments later that she couldn't take us after all, as she had to pick up customers at the airport. We waited a good 20+ minutes for a shuttle, in a long line, and then two more showed up immediately after. We heard of others waiting 45 minutes or more. In addition, the shuttle pickup was not marked. At all. We just saw a bunch of people heading that way (I assume from where they'd been dropped off), and followed. Read Less

Highly recommend the excursion “Alaska’s Wildest Kitchen”. We took it at the end of the day and it was great. The woman who taught this has lived in Alaska on the water for 20+ years. Worked on fishing boats, etc.. Gave us 3 recipes of her favorites – Salmon Dip, Salmon Burgers and Fish Soup. Showed us how to make it and we had samples. Then we each got a piece of halibut and salmon and were able to season it ourselves and cook it outside on the fire. It was very interesting too. Read Less

Instructor was a kick. She had several stories while fixing salmon dip, salmon patties and boiled fish soup. We had samples of everything, then she cut up a halibut and we were given a piece of halibut and salmon, and we went outside to cook them ourselves. I'd never eaten halibut before and it was really good. I've cooked salmon, but this was really fresh and both were delicious. This was the best meal we had on the cruise. Read Less
