Have been to Icy Straight Point several times. Take a walk around the gravel walkway you will discover a entrance to a piece of Boreal Forest and when you step into it you will know there is something special about it. On one trip they gave us two little pieces of cedar an a coin. While walking around there is a native guarding a fire if you make a wish an burn your cedar it might come true. The old cannery was neat an you can get a can fill it with whatever trinkets toys that on this big table an pay 16.00 they seal the can and you mail it from there to your kids.grandkids or yourself. You will need a can opener to get in. There is a restaurant with a 6 ft log or two burning an good food. Fishing is great from the shore where u will find me. There is a village about one an a half mile walk through the forest if you care. The cannery has artisans in it also. An killer whales come by all the time. Hope this helps

Small port many did the 90 seconds of pure adrenaline zip line or the overhaul crab charter/feast tour. Which were all well recommended and boasted about. This out of all the spots was best to see whales (humpback, orcas and sea lions) hands down. Many went in Juneau which does have sighting but not quite the same experience since its usually raining in Juneau. Whale watching a must do for sure in Icy Strait Point.

Not much to do/see here, but they did have free WiFi near the zip line viewing area/restaurant. Saw some whales from the ship.

Whale watching here was great! We took a small boat (16 guests) and found a pod of 5 Humpbacks to follow. Captain had sonar that allowed us to hear the whales as well. Definitely should do an excursion here as not much else to do in port.

Where the ship anchored (tender service here) there were several whales swimming near the ship. Whale watching tours actually came back out by the ship to watch the same whales.
