This was our second visit to Icy Strait Point, and we wanted to be sure on this visit to see the Tribal Dance show. On shore, you are able to purchase tickets to the show 'only' - whereas onboard your ship, if you want to see only the show, then it is tied to other things to do on the... More

The tram ride went out along the bay, was nice but nothing special. We saw at a distance an otter and an eagle - not sure it you would spot other things at other times of the year. The tribal dance was the first that we had experienced. It was very simply done, and seem to represent the tribe and... More

neat oral history stories and costumes/drumming. Enjoyed this. It was combined with a tram ride which was ok. Saw Sitka fawns and eagle. But for price.....not great value. Wish I would have went with the wildlife tour as they saw brown bear...

Overall it was informative and learned about "Raven". Overall if I was booking today I would have skipped this stop. Did the tram ride with the show, nothing special. Might be the location to enjoy the ship.

On a recent cruise to Icy Strait, AK, we opted to take the Hoonah Tour followed by the Tribal Dance and Cultural Legends (back in Icy Strait). The story-telling dance is held in a modern structure that was built for this purpose. The seating was on wooden tiered benches that faced the stage. There were four dancers and a story-teller...

Our visit to Hoonah (Ice Strait Point) began with a tram ride though the forest and along the coastline to observe wildlife and plant life. We had great views of two eagles sitting majestically in a tree watching us. The tram ride lasted 1-1/2 hours. Then we spend another hour seeing tribal dances and hearing legends of these people who... More

Our small cruise ship docked at the Icy Strait Point pier. This is a 100 yr. old restored Salmon Cannery and Tlingit Tribal site. The 45 -60 min. performance is in their own native theater. The theatrical performance explains their history and culture through storytelling, dance, songs and music. It was very professional and it kept everyone's attention, kids to... More

Never having been to Alaska before, this excursion from our cruise ship sounded interesting. The building was new looking and comfortable for what it was used for. After we were all in the room, one of the tribal dancers came out, set some ground rules (no pictures during the dances) and explained what we were going to see. The dancers... More
