You will meet your Juneau Salmon Bake shore excursion staff and transfer bus right on the Juneau cruise pier and just a short drive away is one of Juneau's best traditions, the Gold Creek Salmon Bake. The excursion site for your salmon bake is outdoors sitting right along the creek and has covered as well as open-air seating. Listen to Alaska style folk music while you dine under the trees or beneath translucent, heated domes shielding you from the elements.
Here you will savor the original Alaskan-caught wild salmon as you never have before. Barbecued over an open alder wood fire and served with a tasty secret sauce, it will be hard to eat salmon when you go home without comparing. The Alaska wild salmon is accompanied by chicken parmesan, cheesy au gratin potatoes, baked beans with reindeer sausage, wild-rice pilaf, a variety of salads, cornbread, lemonade, coffee, tea, hot apple cider, hot chocolate as well as blueberry cake for dessert. Beer, wine and soda are available for purchase onsite.
After your salmon bake meal, take a stroll through the Alaskan woods to relax and make room for roasted marshmallows over the campfire. Take the short walk along Salmon Creek, a salmon spawning steam in late summer, to a waterfall where you can also explore a few remnants of the historic Wagner Mine. If the mood hits you, try your hand at gold panning with the included pans you will find down by the creek. Any gold you find is yours to keep!
Buses returning to the Juneau cruise ship pier depart regularly so whenever you are ready, just make your way out to the bus stop and get on the next bus back to the pier (transportation cost included).

Love this !
There were 6 of us in our group , we decided to going on this excursion when we got off the Cranival cruise ship. Gold panning and a salmon bake. Our tour guide was great his knowledge was excellent. The Gold panning was entertaining (we could have done that all day), then he took us around Juneau and showed us a lot of sites then off to the Salmon Bake as you walk up the little hill . There's this big outdoors Kitchen ., it was amazing . The salmon was so excellent!! and the side dishes were fantastic also. Then we took a walk up to the beautiful water falls . What an amazing adventure. One person in our group had to use a cane and this wasn't to hard for him to do. Thank you , I highly recommend it!! Eat lots of salmon! Keep an eye on your food the squarels and crows love it also , hahahah

Best food ever
My husband and I are in our late 60's so decided to go on this excursion because there are no extreme adventures involved and it's not too long... I am glad we chose it, it was wonderful!!! The taste of the salmon is something out of this world, we tried to get the recipe from the chef but he told us that it was a family secret and he wanted to keep it that way. We highly recommend this excursion. I took some great pics, i'll share them with you as soon as I have them ready
