Default Sitka Must-Do

Just got back from a wonderful first-time-Alaska cruise on the Sea Princess. Had a little "adjusting" to do with respect to port activities, since the majority of our cruises have been in the Caribbean. However...

...in Sitka, DO NOT miss the New Archangel Dancers. This is a company of volunteer women who formed a dance group several years ago. They've perfected as many as 30+ traditional Russian dances (Sitka was the former capital of the Russian territory) and perform them when the cruise ships are in town. Their costumes are very colorful and their dancing is magnificent. The admission charge is very reasonable ($6) and the show is repeated several times during the ship's port hours (which seem to dictate their schedule). Incidentally, New Archangel was the name of the City of Sitka at one time.

When they started, the women dancers invited men to be a part of the group and were told by the men "no, thanks". Now that the dance group has been invited to perform at several far-away venues, the men are asking to join, but are being told "no, thanks".

A favorite of mine in Sitka is a boat tour to St. Lazaria puffin rookery. I really love watching those birds, a better tour however is out of Jonesport Me. with Norton's. Have been to both.
