Cruising Alaska: May/June 2006

We arrived at the village of Hoonah just before 07:00. There are no docking facilities for large ships, so 90-passenger tenders were used to get people to a tourist operation called Icy Strait Point, located a mile and a half from Hoonah. With little about it on the 'Net, I didn't have high expectations for the day. The first impression was very good, though, as when you step off the tender, you're handed a little package with cedar chip to add to a fire burning down the beach.
