Wonderful costumes, dancers, story telling. My cousin went on stage to become a 'wolf' who was being wooed by Raven. So much fun, well worth it.

We needed something to do in Icy Strait besides the shops so we did this attraction. Pretty lame but the kids were trying.

The dancing and story telling was amazing. The lighting added to the atmosphere and it was a show that should not be missed.

I enjoyed this one hour show. This is a small town and learning about their traditions and culture made for a lovely day. I appreciated that it wasn't too expensive so we could feel good about only an hour long show. Good job!

We spent something like 3 hours in our disembarkation process as the ship does not dock here and you need tenders to take you ashore. Once there, there is actually NOTHING to be done here except for the extremely highly priced and... More

Icy Strait Point required a tender ride to shore so we opted to head out a little later after the rush. This excursion was sold out when I tried to book it on board our ship but once ashore, there was a tour sales desk, just up the stairs from the tender dock and to the right, that quickly fit...
