Icy Strait Point is a tourist destination located on Chichagof Island, just outside the village of Hoonah, Alaska. It is privately owned and is named after nearby Icy Strait. Owned by Huna Totem Corporation, Icy Strait Point is the only privately owned Alaskan cruise destination, as most stops are owned by the towns in which they are situated. Huna Totem Corp. is owned by nearly 1,350 Alaskan Natives with aboriginal ties to Hoonah and Glacier Bay area. A lot of them are of Tlingit people.
However, for the most part Icy Strait Point is simply a jumping-off point for cruise shore excursions. The most well-known of the trips is the ZipRider zip-line which completes its run close to the facility, constructed by Huna Totem Corporation. It opened in May 2007 and measures 1,620 m (5,330 feet) and made claims to being the world's longest, or later to at least being one of the highest and longest at 410 m (1,330 feet) in North America. The ZipRider has been rated a "must do" attraction by Anchorage Daily News. In September 2013 it was featured on the Ride-iculous show of Travel Channel.
Another popular shore excursion is to search for brown bears on nearby Spasski River. Sightings happen but aren't guaranteed. Other wildlife, like bald eagles, are frequently seen in the region. Whale watching excursions are often conducted, as the facility is close to Point Adolphus feeding area for humpback whales. Attractions around and at Icy Strait Point have already reached the level where they are getting non-cruise visitors.
Highlights: Hoonah, Tlingit Indian settlement, historic cannery
