Above & beyond Alaska Excursion!
     5/5  (Visited on September 2019)
This was one of our greatest memories of our cruise ship journey last month. The guide was awesome and went above & beyond to offer an unforgettable experience while on this tour. The kayaking portion was not strenuous as I thought it will be, spotted some eagles on our way. Afterward, we were taken to the salmon baked buffet which was delicious.
