We were here at the end of the tourist season for this quaint Tingil village. The town only had a couple of local shops open, but we came across a local totem pole carving facility so we decided to stop in. The old elders of...More

A small town, mainly viewing the ex-cannery for tourists. A trip into the village is a good walk around. Locals are friendly. Small gift shops with the usual trinkets. Check the "made in" labels - not sure if they were joking, but we were told...More

Whales, seals and birds in abundance when we there. Take time to walk around the lovely well kept path, though the town itself isn’t up to much. But we weren’t there to see buildings, we were there for the whales and eagles. And we certainly...More

It is a beautiful place for retiree or person who busies in their daily life. The scenery is very enjoyable and relax. You can watch the whales "jumping" around on the sea, feel the nature of the forest, enjoying the big snow crabs and lobsters...More

Most of Hoonah will be missed unless you go to town. The nature ride is mildly interesting, but stories get told from a too esoteric point of view. There are a few nuggets here, but you have to look hard.

For a change of pace we chose a cruise with a stop at Icy Strait Point, a charming spot in its own right. This is not one of the larger stops along the cruise route between Vancouver and Whittier, but there are lovely sightseeing opportunities...More

Rode on the world's largest ziprider with my son! So much fun! Only bad thing about it was the fog, so we didn't get to see the beautiful views of Icy Strait on our way down!

It's quite likely you could, if it's offered at the right time. Ask them directly. Google Icy Strait Point and click on Contact Us.

First let me thank every single one of you who helped me built the perfect Alaska itinerary, I could not have done it without you. I cannot remember all your names but Maple_Marshmallows and Coalminer, both of you, will never be forgotten. Even though we do not know each other personally, after all those writing and patiently answering all my questions, it feels I know you all along . We took a little bit of both of you on our road trip through Alaska, I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you...More

Why do the boats only hold 6? (3 Replies)
We are 2 families of 4 who are sailing together on HAL's ms Amsterdam, with port stops in Juneau, Kodiak, Icy Strait Point, and Homer. We are really frustrated for lack of marine wildlife boats that accommodate our group. Our only luck so far is Orca Enterprises whale watching out of Juneau, but we prefer to plan land activities there. Does anyone have insider information about boats that accommodate 8 people in any of the other ports? We prefer not to go on the ship's excursions that...More

I would guess it has to do with captain's licensing. I have a few friends with licenses to take out six packs. That is a six paying passengers on a vessel up to 100 gross tons.
