Sitka WhaleFest is a celebration of Alaska marine wildlife through education, research, and community events.
From mid-September until mid-January, the pristine waters of Sitka Sound are home to many humpback whales. Biologists believe the whales are building up food reserves prior to their migration to tropical waters
The first weekend of November each year, participants can learn about the most recent studies on humpback whales and other Alaskan marine wildlife by attending the symposium, whale watching cruises, concerts, marine themed market, 10K run and a feast with a keynote speaker.
