Most summers, Icy Strait Point near Hoonah, Alaska — population 760 — is filled with cruise passengers visiting restaurants and shops, whale watching, exploring on all-terrain vehicles, or hollering down a more-than-mile-long zip line. The destination expected 450,000 visitors this year.
“We haven’t had a ship yet,” said Tyler Hickman, the senior vice president of Icy Strait Point. It has not yet opened as a result.
“The place is just so incredible, you just walk around and wish there was more people here to experience it with you,” he said.
