Simply Amazing Sitka Tour

31 reviews

Excursion Overview

Come adventure on this multi-stop scenic tour through Sitka, Alaska

Meet with your skilled local guide at the Harrigan Centennial Hall as you climb aboard a full-sized passenger van heading south down along Silver Bay. Your guide will point out local flora and fauna such as bald eagles or Sitka Black Tail Deer.

Your first stop on your Journey will be at The Fortress of the Bears. This non-profit facility is home to 7 native bear rescues, 4 of which are Coastal Brown Bears and 3 Black Bears. You will get within 25 feet of these native giants and listen to their stories of hardship and recovery.

After you spend time with our bears, you will head over to The Alaskan Raptor Center. This rehabilitation center for birds of prey is home to multiple species of eagles and owls. Make sure to check out the famous Flight Training Center where you can see bald eagles regaining their skills of flight, well on their way to recovery and release back to the wild.

The grand finale of this tour is a stop at the Sitka National Historical Park. This protected stretch of rainforest is a historical piece of land due to its collection of totem poles, the 19th century battle of the Sheeta Kwan Kiksadi Clan, and the gorgeous cultural center with onsite interpreters. Here you can choose to walk along the winding trails and paths, admire the totem poles, learn all about the occupation of Russian American troops, or inspect the exhibits and demonstrations about carving, fur, beading, and metalworking.

This was a great tour! The guide was fantastic and the stops highlight Sitka well! The van was clean and a nice size that it wasn't a huge bus tour. Highly recommend

Jim was an excellent tour guide! We went to the national park, Fortress of the Bears, and the Raptor Center. As a local, Jim was full of facts for all 3 places. The tour was perfect because it didn't fill up all our time in port so we could still walk downtown Sitka afterwards. I took a similar tour in Sitka last year through the cruise ship, and it had about 40-50 people. The Simply Amazing Sitka Tour had a much smaller group of around 10 people and felt much more personalized vs what I took last year. I highly recommend this tour.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our Sitka tour. Mike was a fantastic guide! He told us about the history of the Island as well as facts about the bears, raptors and salmon. Our ages ranged from 3 to 67! We had a great time!!

There was a glitch in the number of seats available in the van for the tour. The owner called in one of her tour guides (Christian) and he gave us (myself, my wife and my son) a private tour. Your company went beyond what other companies would have done. What could have been a disappointing experience turned out to be one of the highlights of our cruise. Thank You!!!!

We had a great time on the tour of Sitka with Mike. He was very knowledgeable and took us to see the Fortress of the Bear, Raptor Center, Totem Park, and a couple of majestic stops along the way. We were so lucky to have a beautifully sunny day. I wish we had more time there but feel like we got to see the key things that we set out to see.
