The inlets of Sitka are beautiful. On the way to the float houses we got to learn about the landscape of sitka and its various wildlife. Our guide was very good in showing us an inlet. When he spotted something we all might be interested in he would try to point it out. I believe kyaking is one of the best ways a person could ever explore Alaska.
