Additional Port Info

Sitka was originally settled by the Tlingit people over 10,000 years ago before the Russians came over to establish their own settlement in 1799. In 1802, the Tlingit warriors revolted, destroying the Russian settlement and leaving few survivors. It took two years for Russia to return with a large force and bombard the Tlingit fort, forcing the Tlingit people to eventually surrender and desert their stronghold. Following the “Battle of Sitka,” the Russians established New Archangel as a permanent settlement where they continued to control the land until the Alaska Purchase in 1867. The strong Tlingit and Russian American influences can still be seen intermingled today in the local art, downtown architecture, and local museums. One of the best ways to learn about this varied history is with our Sitka Scenic Tour! You’ll drive by some of the historic Russian monuments, walk through the National Historical Park which features Tlingit totem poles, and you’ll visit the Fortress of the Bear which is a habitat for orphaned bear cubs!

 

During World War II, the United States Navy constructed an air base on the neighboring Japonski Island. Today, you can learn more about this part of Sitka’s history with tours like our Sitka Island Paddle and Lost Fort Trek which takes you on a scenic guided kayak paddle through the Sitka Sound and explores abandoned WWII forts.
