Overview

This is primarily transportation but to the degree economically possible includes a guided tour twist. The trolley runs a round trip between Icy Strait Point & the Hoonah Airport with stops in-between. The Round trip Service runs approximately every 30 minutes and is available only on ship days. The service is free and runs between the Icy Strait Point and the Hoonah airport. Are goal is to expand your access to opportunities in Hoonah and we do our best to make your visit enjoyable. Donations are much appreciated but entirely optional.

We caught this bus as a quick way of getting to and from Icy Strait Point. Driver pointed out things of interest on the way including the bald eagle and nest.
