Take in the natural beauty of Haines while visiting sites that include a more than 100-year-old fort, a wildlife center devoted to bald eagles, and Alaska’s oldest cannery.

After departing from the pier, you will drive through Haines to Fort William Seward, which was built on the Lynn Canal in 1902 as a display of power during a border dispute with Canada. Although the fort was decommissioned in 1945, many of its original buildings remain and have been converted into private residences and art galleries. The site is now a National Historic Landmark.

Following a driving tour of the fort’s grounds, you will continue to the American Bald Eagle Foundation, a wildlife center dedicated to the majestic raptors. While here, you will watch bald eagles being fed and learn about the habits of America’s national symbol. Bald eagles are only found in North America and have been known to live up to 35 years in the wild. You will also watch other birds of prey demonstrate their flying skills, see a wildlife film, and snack on fresh-smoked salmon, an Alaskan delicacy locally caught and canned.

Then, after driving along the immensely picturesque Chilkat Peninsula, you will visit Letnikof Cannery. Its smokehouse was built in 1917, distinguishing Letnikof as Alaska’s oldest working cannery. Even so, it’s a state-of-the-art facility with blast freezers, vacuum packing, and machinery that removes even pin-size bones. After a fascinating tour of the cannery, you will return to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 1/2 hours of easy to moderate walking/standing that includes some steps and an uneven boardwalk at the cannery. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Layered clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Participants should be prepared for the possibility of rain. The cannery may not be in operation at the time of your visit, dependent upon the time of the season and the current salmon catch.
