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

One of our favorite ports! We wandered into the big lodge that houses the Smokehouse. We got a drink and warmed up by the big fireplace. Free wifi. We walked the Nature trail and collected shells and rocks. We took the bus to Hoonah and had a beer at the ISP Brewing company. (The local bar looked sketchy.) we walked back to ISP area. It is so cute! We walked through old cannery... make sure to get some SalvationArmy mini donuts! A great low-budget fab day!

We loved this port. Friendly and clean. A shuttle runs from Icy Strait Point into the little town of Hoonah for $2 one way. Not a lot to see there but it was interesting to watch a totem being carved which will represent the story of how the native people settled in Hoonah. Icy Strait Point has lots of gift shops in the old cannery and a huge zip line which we didn't try.

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.
