Default What to do in Sitka?

We have excusions planned for Juneau, and Ketchikan, but we still don't have anything planned in Sitka. We would like to do a fishing excusion, but we need recommendations for vendors. Sitka Secrets is now only doing bookings through the cruise ships. It seems to be almost double the price through Celebrity than what they advertise on their web site.

Recommendations other than fishing would also be appreciated. We are open minded about what to do in Sitka.

We did the Russian dancers and the Raptor center. We really enjoyed both, but it did not leave a lot of time to see downtown Sitka or get to the Russian cathedral(I think it is St. Michael's) This time we are just going to walk around town and visit some of the museums and the church.

I booked a city tour through the ship in which included the Russian Dancers and Rapter Center. Then I did my own walking tour which I enjoyed just as much. Most things are within walking distance, unlike some ports of call.
