Explore The Coast

Take part in kayaking and boat tours around the beautiful waters surrounding the city. Your family will love exploring the Sitkan wildlife through the options of Sitka Sound Ocean Adventures, Alaska Travel Adventures, and Latitude Adventures. All these companies offer reasonable rates, and best of all, most tours can be done year-round. They’re also available for short trips or longer trips, depending on how many adventures you want to get into.

Best Place To Sea Kayak

The western edge of Baranof Island is framed by the waters, the sky, and the dormant volcano in the background. This makes for an excellent backdrop for pictures of you and your family. A boat or kayak ride is just how to take our Sitkan culture in and get to know the tone better. Last but not least, Sitka is located on the outer coast of Alaska and offers a maze of passages and islands you can visit and explore but only by kayak or boat. What are you waiting for? Let’s schedule a tour today.

Wildlife You Can See

Once you have scheduled a guided tour of Sitka, it is time to prepare for what you may see. We recommended taking a camera along so you can grab pictures of all the wildlife you may come in contact with. Some of the tours have attracted many fish species, whales, sea otters, sea lions, puffins, and even a few seals. Up in the treetops around the area, you may be able to spot an eagle, great blue herons, and sandpipers. The lush and tree-filled forest can include brown bears, moose, elk, deer, and various small creatures.

Once your adventure is complete, you might want to wind down and relax at the best place in town: Sitka Hotel. The Sitka Hotel overlooks the Sitka Harbor and Crescent Bay and is newly renovated and the perfect area for the family to get together.
