Listen to the guide, learn all that you can about this exciting culture, marvel at the totems and their picturesque settings, and grab a cup of the free coffee.

“Interesting if you get a good guide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We visited the Saxman Totem Pole village and had a great guide who gave us alot of information about the totem poles, their meaning, age, how they are carved, etc. Basically, you walk around and look at them and take pictures. There are restrooms and a curio shop across the street and a view of the bay.

The cape fox corporation has come a long way! I love taking my guests out here to see, hear, and experience the Alaskan Native Traditions and the Art behind the Dance :)
