  1. Yes, it's about a 10 minute walk along the waterfront on Dallas Rd just outside the port gates.
  2. We've done the tour twice. ...lots of fun.
  3. Exit 191 (north Melbourne/ Viera) has the most hotels right off I-95. Their is a brand new Fairfield Inn...also Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, and remodeled La Quinta. There is a ton of restaraunts and Walmart and Target for last minute items.

    Jet ski tour

    I've been able to do a secure booking online in the past with KS Watersports . They are the jet ski vendor right at the dock next to the cruise ship. https://kswatersports.resqwest.com/web/
  5. The above pics are form just off the hiking trail in the Sitka national Park.
  6. If you use the All Trails map you will walk past the Baranof Historical Site and a beautiful Episcopal church on the waterfront and have a chance to get some great pics. I think you should have a pretty full day of walking and if you follow that map you will see lots of amazing views. https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/alaska/sitka-walking-tour-crescent-harbor-to-the-raptor-center?ref=sidebar-view-full-map
  7. We walked all of Sitka. We started at St Michael's Russian Orthodox church then headed off along Lincoln St to Baranof Castle State Historical Site followed by continuing along Lincoln St to Sitka Sound Science Center and finishing at the Sitka National Park. It is a trek, but beautiful views.
  8. We have done both. The one at the dockyard is very convenient. Yes, Somerset covers your cab to them....but the savings are wiped out by the return taxi cost you have to pay on your own. We tend to like the earliest jet ski slot in the morning as it usually has fewer riders making for less lost time teaching them how to follow along.
  9. We've been to Skagway 6x. We have used Dyea Dave's and Chilkoot....honestly I really didn't prefer one over the other. Both were great tours.
  10. It is whale migration season in May and June. So, spend as much time on deck while cruising and you may have a couple surprise visitors near the ship.Two years ago we were in Juneau on Mother day for a whale watch excursion. 4 hrs on the water...not one humpback whale....but we had a surprise as we were heading back to the marina.... a pod of Orcas!
  11. If your paperwork shows pier 21 as of today then the odds are 21. Don't worry....
  12. Happened to us 2 weeks ago. No problem, the port supplied shuttle vans.
