Easily Alaska's most exotic port of call, Sitka is situated on the west side of Baranof Island and is only accessible by air and sea. With a unique blend of Russian history and Tlingit people, Sitka makes for a fascinating port of call. During your stay you can visit ‘Castle Hill', a reminder of Russia's bloody battles against the native Tlingit people; ‘Sitka National History Park', where you can see artefacts relating to the indigenous Tlingit people or check out the ‘Sheldon Jackson Museum' and see some of the Sitka's arts, crafts and Russian relics. Alternatively take a stroll through Sitka National Historical Park, browse the downtown district or visit the bald eagles and other rare birds that have been injured at the ‘The Raptor Rehabilitation Centre'.
Whilst you're in Sitka you can shop for handmade Alaskan Native arts and crafts at the shop ‘Sheldon Jackson Museum' - you'll discover a unique selection here. The chocolate bars in the shape of salmon and halibut at the ‘Theobroma Chocolate Company' also make great souvenirs.
The local currency in Sitka is the US Dollar (USD). Sitka is 9 hours behind Greenwich meantime (GMT-9).
