This unforgettable cruise through Alaska's visual paradise starts at Crescent Harbor. A small group (maximum six guests) sets out aboard a heated, covered cabin-cruiser boat. Your skipper will narrate as he navigates the boat through the islands surrounding Sitka and out into Sitka Sound.
Learn about Sitka's rich local, natural and marine histories and the Native populations before, during and after the Russian era. You will see World War II bunkers. Watch for marine wildlife all along the way, and learn about the region's ecology. Wildlife encounters may include whales, sea lions, seals, sea otters, eagles and a variety of marine birds.
You're headed to beautiful and scenic Camp Coogan Bay and the Boar's Nest Floathouse. This is a privately-owned floating home built in the 1920s during the heyday of the logging industry. Your guide tells you about Camp Coogan Bay's logging history and living off the grid in this remote bay. A slice of the real Alaska!
Enjoy a light snack and beverage at the floathouse before you reboard the boat for the short ride back to Crescent Harbor.
Minimum age is 5 years. Maximum weight is 250 lbs. Ride will be bumpy; guests who are pregnant or have a back or neck condition are not allowed to participate. The ramp to access the boat may be steep, depending on tidal conditions. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed.
