Cruises from Haines
Standing out is the scenic beauty of Haines, probably the best of any Alaskan town. It is in the northern part of the Alaska Panhandle, near Glacier Bay National Park. Skagway is 25 km away further along the fjord. Here you can mingle with locals, chat with a lumberjack at the Pioneer Bar, and maybe even hear about how someone had a bear in their backyard the night before.
As docking facilities only allow for one large cruise ship and possibly a small ship, visitors experience the unhurried, relaxed atmosphere of a true Alaskan town.
