We just got off the ship and walked all over. We went through the rainforest and saw all the totem poles and went to the bird sanctuary. It was all fun

The weather and sites here were absolutely beautiful! We went into town and wanted something quick to eat before our kayak tour on the ocean, so we had some local Mexican food, it was not bad at all. It was actually tasty coming from an Alaskan standpoint LOL. The kayaking tour we did was about two hours, it was absolutely worth it. Me and my dad were able to see tons of wildlife i.e. Dear, jellyfish, soaring Eagles and tons of salmon.

Our favorite. No excursions but walked on our own. Walked along the pathway around the harbor to the Sitka Sound Science Center (Salmon galore in the harbor and research tanks). Then walked trails through Sitka National Historic Park seeing hundreds of salmon as well as eagles.
