  • Round-trip transportation from your Juneau cruise ship pier!
  • English-speaking certified guides!
  • Experience Alaska river rafting on a river fed by a glacier in Juneau!
  • Complimentary bottled water and a snack!
  • All necessary rafting safety instructions and life jackets are included!
  • Keep your eyes peeled for potential wildlife sightings!
  • See the Mendenhall glacier from a different perspective!
  • Escape the cruise ship shore excursion crowds and enjoy the unique sights of Juneau and Alaska!

Departing from downtown Juneau, you will transfer to the Mendenhall Valley and the beautiful Mendenhall Lake, approximately 30 minutes away. Here, your Juneau River Rafting Cruise Excursion guides will meet you with life jackets, present a safety briefing and give you a quick overview of what is to come.

Your experienced Alaska rafting guide will steer you across the serene waters of the lake, maneuvering past the floating icebergs, to the river beyond. The speed of the water and level of the rapids vary depending on the weather, but your highly trained guides will ensure you have a safe and exhilarating experience. You will be rafting a five-mile stretch of river from Mendenhall Lake, in the Tongass National Forest.

If you are interested in a scenic, yet slightly adventurous Juneau outdoor excursion experience, where you can get out into nature and learn about the Alaska area, see the glacier, the icebergs, some potential wildlife, and the thrill of going through a short section of river rapids while the rafting excursion guide takes complete care of you, then this is the Juneau shore excursion for you!

If you prefer a higher level of activity and adrenaline, where you will be following the guide's commands and powering your raft through the short section of river rapids, then you will want to ask for a "paddle raft" when you get to the put-in location. Your Juneau River Rafting shore excursion guides can accommodate you, whatever your activity level preference is.

Be on the lookout for Alaskan wildlife throughout the entire stretch of the river rafting part. Birds, including arctic terns, nest on the shoreline, and eagles, goats, salmon as well as bears are all common sights too! Rafting time is approximately 90 minutes and can vary based on the current of the river.

At the end of your fun Juneau Alaska cruise excursion, you will head to shore to enjoy a complimentary Alaska-style snack consisting of reindeer sausage, cheese, crackers, salmon spread, water, and hot apple cider! You will have the opportunity to purchase a photo of your rafting excursion experience before re-boarding your motor coach for the 30-minute ride back to your cruise ship terminal in Juneau.

Pure adrenaline!

I was part of the excursion while traveling on the Joy. If you like extreme stuff, you will love this tour as I did. The rafting was fantastic and spotted some wild animals on our way. We saw the glacier close up too. The guide was very informative and like how they are prepared for any last-minute inconvenience or emergency, that made my wife feel comfortable and safe.

A rush of adrenaline

I loooooved it! I had went rafting before but in Alaska is such a mind blowing experience, it was hard to watch the river the whole time as we were passing such great scenery along the shores. Had to try the reindeer sausage which goes perfectly with the hot apple cider they give you. Don't think twice about booking this excursion, it is totally worth the bucks you'll pay!
