Sitka is Accessible only by ferry

US Ports:

Sitka, Alaska

Sitka is located on Baranof Island and was the capital of Russian America from 1808 to 1867.

The port is served year-round by Alaska Marine ferries and as there are no roads into or out of Sitka, the city is completely reliant on the state provided ferry service.

Ferries serve Sitka from 10 ports  

Perhaps most famous today as the home of  St. Michael's with its copper domes and gold crosses, the Cathedral is the first Russian church built in America

Of particular interest to Sitka visitors is the Southeast Alaska Indian Cultural Center where one can watch and talk to Native artisans; the Sheldon Jackson Museum -home to the largest collection of Alaskan Native artifacts, and the Alaska Raptor Rehabilitation Center - southeast Alaska's premier wildlife center.
