Icy Strait Point Marks Two Decades of Cultural and Natural Exploration

Icy Strait Point marked its two-decade milestone with celebrations that included guests from Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas and 20 longstanding employees who have been with the Alaskan destination since its inception on May 23, 2004.

The Huna Totem Corporation, proprietor of Icy Strait Point, has established collaborations within Alaska and further afield to create new ventures modelled after Icy Strait Point. An example is Port Klawock, introduced on May 6, 2024, on Prince of Wales Island.

“I am extremely proud of our progress and, more significantly, our team and community,” expressed Russell Dick, the president and CEO of Huna Totem Corporation. “We founded Icy Strait Point to celebrate and showcase our culture, upholding our fundamental mission and principles. We honor the land and support our community, which is evident to every visitor to Icy Strait Point.”

Johan Dybdahl, the Director of Special Projects, recounted, “We’ve advanced tremendously from day one. We labored tirelessly through the night to prepare for the first ship’s arrival. The next morning, all employees gathered on the boardwalk to see the Celebrity Mercury approach. It was a breathtaking moment. The crowd was exuberant; some were even moved to tears. However, the ship sailed past the cannery, anchoring before the town instead, and guests had to tender back to us. Still, that morning, with a massive ship facing the town, sparked immense excitement among the community.”
