    • How would you spend 10 hours in Unalaska?

      Dutch Harbor Jul 25, 2016 at 5:16 PM

      My husband, son (2.5 years old), and I will be visiting Dutch Harbor in September on a cruise ship. We have contacted Bobbie (Extra Mile Tours) for a tour but have not heard back from her yet. As a plan B, we are thinking of renting a car for the day. Can anyone recommend an itinerary or places not to miss?

      We love driving through beautiful scenery, stopping for photographs, viewing wildlife in their natural habitat, and learning about different cultures. I read in a previous post that Captain's Bay Road is a great place for whale watching. We were thinking about stopping at the Holy Ascension of Our Lord Christ. What else?

      Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    • Northern Lights necklace

      Alaska Jul 14, 2016 at 1:59 PM

      Hi All!

      I really hope you can help. We did a Disney Cruise to Alaska last summer and at one port (either Skagway, Juneau, or Ketchikan) I bought a necklace from a jewelry store that was called "Northern Lights" for $10. They had matching earrings for the same price but I bought the necklace only. Real or not real, it didn't matter...I loved it. It was just a small, round stone. We moved about 6 weeks ago, and the midst of moving...the necklace is missing. It's driving me nuts and I am really mad about it. So, now I wanted to see if I could possibly find the jewelry store who sold it to me and contact them about possibly ordering another one. I can picture the store from the outside, but cannot exactly recall the port, the store's name, or any of it. I am hoping perhaps one of you guys could help me!! I would really greatly appreciate any help you could offer. Thanks! It's very much appreciated it.

      Is the Eagle Preserve Jetboat likely to be fun for boys ages 7 and 10 in June, or are they liable to get bored?

      getting around Haines

      by firefly2010 Online Now Apr 16, 2010 at 5:11 PM

      Can you walk to town from the cruise ship? Is it best to do an excursion from the ship or can you find and book one on your own? Any suggestions on what to see there for the day.

    • scenic drive from Haines to BC in March?

      by jodiNYnjCO Online Now Mar 4, 2010 at 12:03 PM

      We are arriving in Haines, AK around March 15th, and intend to take the scenic drive into BC sometime that week. Can anyone tell me that the Pass/road is definitely open during this time of year? Also, does anyone know of some easy-access backcountry skiing along this drive? Or have a weblink to information on backcountry skiing this area? Any info is greatly appreciated!

      haines or skagway

      by 9tigers Online Now Apr 28, 2008 at 6:34 AM

      I will be fly into haines and stay there and rent a car and drive up to haines junciton, I think it is beautiful...
      I was originally thinking of take the water taxi the next day to skagway and take a bus tour to white pass, then take the ferry back to Juneau, but is it all worth it to go over skagway? or haines is just as beautiful?
