Wrangell (Alaska USA) cruise port

Wrangel Island has land area approx 544 km2 (210 mi2), ranking it the USA's 29th-largest. The island is separated from mainland USA by Blake Channel. The island is heavily forested and has abundant wildlife. Thoms Place (the community) is on the island's southwestern coast, across Zimovia Strait from Etolin Island. Almost all of the island's territory is a federally protected nature sanctuary. 

The Indigenous Tlingit people and their ancestors inhabited Wrangell Island for thousands of years, migrating down Stikine River when it flowed underneath the glaciers. Bear Totem Store was built during the 1920s and housed a huge collection of Indigenous arts and crafts, along with irreplaceable totem poles. A severe fire in the early 1950s burned much of downtown Wrangell and destroyed the Bear Totem Store along with most of its historic buildings.

The local economy is based on tourism, logging and fishing. Wrangell AK has two major forms of transportation - airplanes and ferries. Alaska Marine Highway (AMHS) includes the port on its Inside Passage route. The town is served with regularly scheduled northbound and southbound ferry crossings linking it to mainland Alaska.

During summer, the port is also visited on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays via Inter-Island Ferry Authority's cruiseferry MV Stikine. The roundtrip starts in Prince of Wales Island's Coffman Cove, continues to Wrangell, Petersburg (Mitkof Island) and returns to Wrangell and Ketchikan (Revillagigedo Island).

Wrangell Airport receives 2 daily scheduled flights (1 morning, 1 evening) by Alaska Airlines' Boeing 737-400 aircraft. island's primary road is Zimovia Highway (running along the west coast). Most roads on the island are unpaved, forest service roads. there are also many hiking and logging trails.
