The Sitka Conservation Society will host a family and kid-oriented harbor cruise from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 1, on one of the Allen Marine boats. Tickets are just $25, and boarding starts at 9:45 a.m. at Crescent Harbor.
This special cruise kicks off the Sitka Conservation Society’s summer schedule of educational harbor cruises, with six scheduled for this year:
- 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 1;

Each cruise will have a special topic, guest speakers and price, so watch for more details later in the summer. These cruises are a great way for Sitka residents and visitors to get out and explore areas around Sitka, while learning about our local wildlife, forests and marine environment.
