against the base of White
Alice mountain, Hoonah is a quiet village which has been
home to the Huna Tlingit since advancing ice pushed them from
the shores of Glacier Bay during the last ice age. The largest Tlingit
village in Alaska, Hoonah has a rich cultural heritage which can be
explored and enjoyed during your visit.
confluence of Icy Strait
and Port Frederick, Hoonah boasts immediate access to outstanding
fishing and excellent whale watching. We have often spotted humpback
and killer whales working along the shores right in front of town.
The rich waters of Icy Strait support a large and diverse population
of marine mammals, fish and birds.
one mile from the Icy Strait Point
cruise port, Hoonah offers visitors several excellent places to eat,
shop and stay during your
visit. We have a comfortable guest cabin
available for our multi-day guests or they may choose lodging from
several local bed and breakfasts as well as the Icy Strait Lodge.
