The Cruise port of Icy Strait Point is located on Chichagof Island, just outside the village of Hoonah, which is about 30 miles from Juneau. Unlike other cruise ports in Alaska, Icy Strait Point is native-owned and operated. All the profits from this privately-owned destination help support the Native Tlingit village.
Hoonah is the largest Tlingit village in Alaska and in the early 1900s, the Hoonah Packing Company built a cannery just north of town on Icy Strait Point. Besides its history as a salmon cannery, Icy Strait Point is also home to the world’s longest and highest zipline, the Ziprider.
Where Cruise Ships Dock in Icy Strait Point
The cruise ships dock on the corner of Port Frederick Inlet and Icy Strait. There are two berths there within half a mile away from one another, the Adventure Landing Dock (ALD) and the Wilderness Landing Dock (WLD).
In 2016, Icy Strait Point built their first dock (ALD) to accommodate cruise ships. Then in 2021, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings invested in the construction of a second cruise ship dock (WLD). A high-speed Transporter Gondola links both the cruise berth landings.
