If you make a stop in this port, save room for a meal at a local pub called Bay View Pub and probably the best fish and chips I've ever had. I asked the waitress if I'd like 'rock fish' and she said yes. She didn't lie. Right in town, second floor.

Absolutely loved Sitka. Was able to walk around town a bit before it was time to go on my excursion. Loved that this port wasn’t just the same shops as at every other port. The people in all the shops were really friendly and helpful when I was trying to find the shop where I was supposed to meet my friends. Went on an amazing hike in the Tongass National Forest with very informative guides. If I could move to any town we visited in Alaska, it would be Sitka. Actually checked to see if there were any job postings there when I got home from my cruise 😜
