Icy Strait Point


Description of Destination : icy_strait_point

Whale watching tours

Icy Strait Point is located fifty miles west of Juneau and at the mouth of Glacier Bay. When visiting Icy Strait Point travellers have the unique opportunity to experience Tlingit culture, superior wildlife viewing opportunities and years of Alaskan history!

Tender ashore from your cruise ship and you'll be met by local Alaskans from the Hoonah tribe. At the top of the dock is an old salmon cannery which has been upgraded for visitors to walk through and enjoy.

Watch the canning process, shop for souvenirs or enjoy some local cuisine. At the end of the dock is the Crab Station, a local restaurant serving up fresh Alaskan crab!

In the waters around Icy Strait Point there is an abundant amount of wildlife. Enjoy whale watching or bird watching. Did you know there are over 250 species of birds in the area? Additionally, you could spot a bear, deer or seals.

Icy Strait Point also offers a 5,495 foot high ziprider! Available within walking distance of where your tender boat will dock, it's the second longest zip line in the world! The verticle drop is 1,320 feet and you can reach speeds of up to 65 miles per hour!

Short walk from Icy Strait Point is the tribal village of Hoonah. About 1.5 miles away, you can walk or take a shuttle (approximately $8 US per person roundtrip).

In Hoonah you'll find two restaurants and a coffee shop. One highlight is to try the fresh crab offered at the local restaurants at lower 'local' prices.
