    • 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 somehow...in 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.

      -Alison

      Anchorage to Sitka and back

      by AlexanderH5 Online Now Mar 11, 2013 at 1:12 PM

      Hi,

      I am planning a trip in June to Alaska to observe some of the historic sites (I research Russia's colonies in Alaska). My trip is only a week, but I would like to get from Anchorage to Sitka, then possibly to Kodiak , then back to Anchorage. Can ferries do this? What would be the least-expensive way? I will land and depart in Anchorage, so I need to be able to get back to anchorage. Any help or resources would be great.

    • A day in Sitka

      by Mum_J Online Now Aug 18, 2008 at 3:59 PM

      We are visiting on a cruise ship for a day. Can anyone suggest what we should do, not miss, etc? I am not too keen on being railroaded onto organised mass excursions unless it's the only way to see an area.

      Many thaks for any help.

      We want to immerse ourselves in the culture of Sitka. We will be docking there in September 11, from 8 am to 5pm and would like to unload some pink dollars. Interested in events, history, tours, coffee shops, shopping, restaurants, fishing, anything you have to offer. We would love to support any local gay business, but we do not exclude any good services.

    • Month-long Lodging in SItka

      by clairer Online Now Jun 15, 2003 at 6:47 PM

      HI, I live on Unimak Island on the Aleutian chain, and will be travelling to Sitka in August for a month of medical training. Housing is provided for me, but I was interested in my husband coming with me as a vacation for us, and this would not be appropriate in the current group housing arrangement. Does anyone know of any reasonable weekly rate lodging? Preferably a place with a kitchenette? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thankyou for your consideration. Claire
