The small coastal town of Xu.naa (Hoonah) is a welcome sight after being out in the wilderness for an extended period of time. It's not very touristy so don't expect a whole lot (which is actually a good thing), but it does have all the basic essentials and has easy access from the harbor. We only had a few hours of shore leave and the first thing we hit was the grocery/general store for some snacks and toiletries. Next we joined the guys, who after living and working on a "dry" research vessel for several weeks, had not surprisingly made their way to the local bar. If you want to experience the wilds of SE Alaska, but need to have some semblance of civilization nearby, consider Hoonah!
