This Juneau Sightseeing Cruise Excursion combo depart downtown Juneau for the 12-mile drive to the Mendenhall Valley. Your shore excursion driver will share some of the region's history, culture and outdoor lifestyle during the drive. Upon arrival, you will have free time on your own to stroll one of the numerous self-guided walking trails, ask questions of the knowledgeable US Forest Service staff. There is also a visitor's center available for a small admission fee (not included) where you can see interactive videos and exhibits. Do not forget your camera, as the outside porch on the visitor's center offers a great perspective of the glacier across the lake. A great adventure sightseeing combo cruise shore excursion from Juneau, Alaska!

Your two-hour wildlife cruise departs from Auke Bay. Your shore excursion captain and onboard naturalist will welcome you aboard The North Star, a state-of-the-art 48-passenger jet boat designed for Juneau whale watching from inside or out on deck. More than 60 humpback whales return from Hawaii to this area each season to feed in the nutrient-rich waters. Where some whale watching is done in miles of open ocean, this is a more enclosed area, which increases the possibilities of sightings. Your whale-watch sightseeing excursion captain is so experienced in knowing where to look that they guarantee whale sightings. In fact, if a whale is not spotted you will receive a $100 refund ($50 for children).

The Gold Creek Salmon Bake is more than a meal. It is the ultimate Alaska experience with great food, live music, and fun activities like gold panning, marshmallow roasting, and a nature walk, set in a rain forest alongside Salmon Creek. Here you will dine on Alaskan-caught salmon grilled over an open alder wood fire. In addition, there is Parmesan chicken, cheesy au gratin potatoes, baked beans with reindeer sausage, wild rice pilaf, cornbread, clam chowder, and other sides, salads and beverages and blueberry cake for dessert. Beer, wine and soda are available for purchase. If this is your last stop, transfer buses run regularly to take you back to the cruise pier.

What a great taste of Juneau, Alaska; whale watching, a salmon bake, and a visit to see the Mendenhall Glacier. All in one day. One of the best sightseeing adventure cruise excursions from Juneau!

The Best and ONLY choice in Juneau!

Best tour we ever took! Mendenhall Glacier, salmon bake, and whale watching. Our driver was super! The glacier was fantastic; there was plenty of time to look around and even take in some of the Ranger talks and see salmon spawning. The whale watching was awesome - saw many whales and one that whale that 'breached' many, many times and the onboard homemade snacks were great. The salmon bake at Orca Point Lodge was a true Alaskan experience. We don't even like salmon, but we ate the whole thing - it was so good!

The name says it all, this was definitely the best of Juneau. We felt like a true Alaskan for a day and we got to visit some of Juneau's most famous locations. The whale watching was the most impressive. The adrenaline of seeing such large mammals is not your everyday experience. It was so exciting to see them so close but we also learn about them and how important they are to our ecosystem. To end our exciting day we enjoyed an outdoor buffet and got to sit down, enjoy nature and met some great people.

The most perfect day
     5/5 Visited June 2016
Ideal for our day in Juneau and for families, we took our children, 8 and 10 years, who were so excited by going in this excursion since we booked it 6 months in advance. We met Spencer who was our guide right at the cruise terminal, since the beginning of the excursion he was very nice, great with kids! The salmon bake is a beautiful tradition, everyone seems to be having a wonderful time. Growing up you get a fantasy image of Alaska and its rugged beauty...we were not disappointed. The scenery is just amazing.
