This Southeast Alaska-based tour operator will leave you with a new definition of what it means to have a once-in-a-lifetime Alaska cruise: You sail on an intimate vessel — often getting to steer yourself, under the supervision of an experienced licensed captain — while exploring away from the crowds, and getting a wonderfully up-close view of the wildlife and scenery. Sailings from Juneau and Sitka.
Museums & Cultural Centers View All
You’ll feel like you’re in Petersburg’s living room in the homey museum. The Clausen Memorial Museum is as much a family logbook as a community museum, a place where residents are asked to try to identify the faces of old pictures. The museum also boasts the unofficial largest king salmon, an 127-pounder landed on a local fishing boat.
Parks & Trails View All
Located on Sandy Beach Loop Road and 1.6 miles from downtown. The park offers three enclosed picnic shelters that can be rented, restrooms and running water. This beachfront park and picnic area also offers vestiges of the Native civilization of the area, including remnants of an ancient fish trip and petroglyphs.
This unique, “E”-shaped trail system allows hikers to meander between three lakes and also connects to saltwater through a short connector to Frederick Sound. There are trout in the lakes and rowboats are provided for public use. Deer, beavers, bears and sometimes sandhill cranes can be spotted here.
