At least two local entrepreneurs have developed shore excursion tours for cruise visitors that focus on Sitka's art assets. One tour is the "Wild Arts Artist Walk" that includes a hands-on experience for the visitor to do some glass blowing. Another focuses on Sitka's photographic opportunities in a three-hour tour that takes visitors to the best spots to capture Sitka in all its stunning, wild beauty.
