Overview Of The Port Of Icy Strait

About Icy Strait
The Icy Strait is a strait in the Alexander Archipelago in south-eastern Alaska. The strait separates Chichagof Island to the south and the Alaska mainland to the north.

Ship organised excursions are the main way of seeing attractions.

Clearly marked walking trails will take you along the seashore, into deep rain forests and around the edges of the lakes. A covered tram takes visitors further afield on a two-hour Forest and Nature Tour.

Two hour bike tours are available, but expensive. There is also a bus tour the village of Hoonah, however as it's within walking distance, the tour is unnecessary.

Icy Strait provides a pleasant experience to explore, browse a few shops and have a light lunch. For fans of folklore, visit the Native Heritage Centre Theatre and take a look at the elaborately carved totem poles.

The Cannery Museum is packed with various historic bits of fish-processing paraphernalia.

The 2½ hour Remote Bush Exploration and Wildlife Search, led by a native guide, gives you an insight into the forest lore of the Tlingits.

Take a flightseeing tour over Glacier Bay to see the spectacular ice fields, forests, lakes and waterfalls of Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.

Saltwater Salmon Fishing trips are also available (minimum age 10 years).

Take a 2 hour whale and marine mammals cruise and try and spot humpback and orca whales.

There are limited places to eat in town. Fresh wild Dungeness crab, Alaskan salmon, halibut and shrimp are all on offer as well as sandwiches, burgers, chilli and chowders.
