I was among the individuals who were invited to the grand opening of the newly constructed cruise ship dock located in Hoonah. The grand opening was held on May 23, 2016 at Icy Strait Point.
In 2012 when both former Representative Bill Thomas and I were co-chairs of the House and Senate Finance Committees – we were able to appropriate $17 million into this project to make it a reality. This was a great investment into the community of Hoonah and will produce dividends for the community for decades.
Icy Strait Point is a cruise ship destination owned and operated by the Huna Totem Corporation, an ANCSA village corporation, who purchased the Icy Strait Point Cannery in 1996 and renovated it into a beautiful cruise ship destination
