Other Activities
     As part of the convention, we will visit to the Fortress of the Bear and the Alaska Raptor Center. We also will go on a whale watching tour. This gives a new perspective on Sitka, and is a great time to see humpback whales, and occasionally orca whales. There can be 60-80 whales in Sitka harbor.
