Kayaking tour with Sitka sound Ocean Adventures. They were amazing. We also took a tour of native village and saw native totem carvers and totem poles. Very inspiring.

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.

We took the tender into Sitka; it would be nicer if they had a pier for the cruise ships. It was a beautiful day and the scenery was very nice. We shopped and had lunch in town, and got more souvenirs.

We docked at the Old Sitka Dock and boarded our tour bus there. Our guide was a native of Sitka and was well-informed and shared lots of interesting information. We visited the Fortress of the Bear, saw lots of bald eagles, went to a cool rain forest (Sitka National Historical Park). Great trip!
