We’ll share with you the rich history of Sitka, and point out wildlife and flora along the way during this peaceful and stunning 7 mile drive along the glorious Silver Bay.

Once you arrive at Fortress of the Bear your group will discover more behind the scenes info about the 8 amazing bears living in Alaska’s famous bear rehabilitation center.  We usually stay about 20-30 minutes at Fortress of the Bear before we head back to Sitka and to the cruise terminal.
