  • Fun little spot in Sitka, not the typical venue for cruise ship tourists but a great spot to take your kids. It's small and won't take much time but there is a lot of interesting sea life and really cool touch tanks. The workers were extremely friendly and talked with us for a while. There's a cool salmon hatchery outside that I would recommend; they provide a self guided tour sheet and you can learn about the differences between a farm and a hatchery. Good place to visit for a family.
  • Salmon are born and set wild so they can get big enough to eat
  • Coolest touch tank I have ever seen. Not much too this place, but I am glad we stopped in and paid to get inside. Worth some of your day when you are on shore from a cruise.
