An authentic Alaskan experience

Located on Chichagof Island, Icy Strait Point is built on the site of the former Hoonah Packing Company salmon cannery. The facilities restored outbuildings now house a variety of restaurants, a museum, and local arts and crafts shops. More than just a tourist destination, the port is a cultural hub for the original inhabitants of the area—the Huna people. In addition to modern amenities, you can enjoy a variety of activities indigenous to the area including native dance performances, brown bear viewings, and whale watching.

At Icy Strait Point, there’s no need to fight between your inner adventurer and laid-back vacationer. You can experience the heart-pumping heights of the world’s largest zipline or sit-back with an Alaska Crabby Bloody Mary, garnished with a fresh-caught snow crab leg. Take a chartered boat ride to see the region’s magnificent marine life, including orcas, Steller’s sea lions, seals, and porpoises. There are also plenty of opportunities to participate in the region’s favorite pastime—fishing. Try your hand at catching the five species of salmon that frequent these rivers and streams, as well halibut and the other saltwater varieties.

Just beyond Icy Strait Point, the rest of Chichagof Island offers an abundance of things to see and do. From birding to kayaking, four-wheeling down old logging trails to hiking amongst tall Sitka spruce, you’ll be sure to have more than a few bucket-list worthy moments on your trip to Icy Strait Point.
