Whittier is a small fishing town. Everyone literally lives in one apartment building! The harbor is surrounded by mountains and the view is amazing. We ate at Swiftwater Seafood Cafe which had outstanding food and service.

There is no place that I know of and things move fast in Whittier, except waiting for the tunnel direction to reveres! Have you checked on the availability of purchasing a water package in advance from the cruise line?
