Goddard Hot Springs

We had a few more things to do in Sitka before we could push off and explore. But most of it had to wait until working hours. So we decided to head to the local Hot Springs for the weekend. Our fishing friends had told us that it can be busy with tour operators during the day, and fisherman at night, but we weren't worried. We were looking forward to a good soak.

We had a beautiful day for the 16 mile trip. Of course, we ate cheese dogs for lunch.

We set our hook in 45 feet of water (much deeper than we're used to...but we're trying to remember how tides work again), among two fishing boats. There were also three kayakers camping nearby.

We were impressed. The tubs were clean. And there was always at least one tub to soak in, we were never crowded or rushed out. They were HOT. We relaxed and didn't do a spec of boat work. It was lovely.

Don't miss Bishop Bay hot springs on your way down the coast - and Hotsprings Island in Haida Gwaii.

Bishop's is on our hit list - we loved it there on our last North Coast cruise. And Haida Gwaii too...
