Lovely small group tour of the wildlife of Sitka. We visited the rehab space for bears. It was incredible to see bears close up and enjoying their environment including frolicing in their pool. We also saw the birds of prey incuding owls, and bald eagles who were being rehabed before being released back into the wild up close. Our last stop was to the totem pole park. We thoroughly enjoyed tou tour to these wonderful sites and our tour guide.

Best of Sitka Shore Excursion

The Best of Sitka Shore Excursion is an excellent shore excursion that was informative and done with a smaller than normal size group which allowed for efficient stays at more locations. I would highly recommend booking this shore excursion in Sitka through Marriott's Cruise with Points website.

Great excursion! Fortress of the Bear & the Alaskan Raptor Center were amazing & informative. All proceeds of visiting these places go to the center to help the animals. Sitka National Historical Park was informative & interesting but more time at the location is needed in order to explore all the amenities, i.e. totem pole carving, hike & museum.

Having a guide who is a long time resident of the area was a big plus. She was very informative and had loads of personality too! We had booked Best of Sitka, but could not get off the ship in time. They were very gracious and accommodating to get us on a later tour. So we actually were on another tour, not sure the name of it. The first stop of our tour was the Alaska Raptor Center. The snowy owl and bald eagle were fun to see up so close although the center is not very big. Next we went to Fortress of the Bear which is an impressive facility. We enjoyed seeing black and brown bears in a "natural" habitat. Our driver/guide then stopped at a lovely scenic spot for photos. Finally, we were conveniently returned to the ship.
