Icy Strait (Hoonah), Alaska-port

Discover the frontier town of Icy Strait surrounded by nature in its unspoiled glory. Pine trees as tall as skyscrapers, humpback whales, eagles, wild salmon, black bears and more, form the harmonious tapestry of life in this Alaskan hinterland. Visit the Native Theater and Heritage Center to see Tlinglit tribal members enacting their history through song and dance. Also worthy of attention are the elaborately carved totem poles. Stroll over to the Cannery Museum and find out how this staple of the Alaskan diet is processed. Shop for locally made preserves, jewelry, wooden carvings, clothing, and bath products. Take a walk along the well-marked nature trail to Hoonah. Enjoy delicious and abundant seafood, Dungeness crab, salmon, shrimp and cod in this remarkable natural environment.

    Ride through a spectacular second growth forest, later emerging at the unspoiled shores of Icy Strait.

    Departing from the ship, you will make your way to the covered-wheel tram that will carry you through the lush greenery that is part of the Tongass National Forest. The majestic Tongass sprawls over 17 million acres, making it three times the size of America's next largest national forest. Riding through its virgin stands of spruce and hemlock is a hauntingly silent, immensely peaceful, and almost spiritual experience. No wonder these forests are often referred to as cathedral forests.

    As you pass beneath the towering trees, your guide will describe the diversity of the forest, geology, flora and fauna. Sitka Blacktail Deer and brown bears are but a few of the larger creatures that make their home here. Emerging from the forest, you will find yourself at Icy Strait, an area known for attracting porpoises, sea lions and seals. The waters are also teeming with halibut and all five species of Pacific salmon. At Icy Point, you may even gaze upon an active bald eagle nest in one of the ancient spruce trees.

    After some time to beach comb on the shore, your tram will return you to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes limited walking, mainly at the guests' discretion during time at the beach. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair and a companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Flat, comfortable walking shoes; warm layered clothing and waterproof outerwear is suggested as you may be exposed to the elements.
