Default Sitka Dock

I am looking a taking a cruise on HAL that stops in Sitka. On HAL's website it says that tendering is required in Sitka. I read that a new cruise ship dock is being built in Sitka this winter. Does anyone know if it will be available for Cruise ships this summer.

I don't know the status of construction, but you should be aware that a dock might not be able to accommodate all of the ships that might call at a port on a given day. Thus, it's possible that a ship might anchor and tender passengers ashore even in a port that does have a dock for cruise ships.

You would be better off tendering. The new dock is being built about 6 miles from town which means bus, taxi, etc.

Don't worry about the tenders. They are very easy, even for the most immobile guests. And very safe. And you never have to wait long either
