What You Can Expect
As Alaska’s capital city, Juneau has so much to offer. On this half-day shore excursion, your guide will lead you through three activities that will give you the best feel for Juneau: a Mendenhall Glacier viewing, humpback whale-watching experience and a traditional salmon bake buffet!
After pickup from your cruise ship port, take a narrated journey to the ice wall at Mendenhall Glacier with your expert guide. The approximately 12 mile (19 km) long glacier is sure to leave you with a lasting impression and dozens of stunning photographs to commemorate your visit.
Next, head to Auke Bay and embark on an exciting whale-watching tour! Board a 48-passenger sightseeing boat and explore Auke Bay, known for the dozens of whales that migrate there each year. The boat's extra-large windows, complimentary binoculars and exterior observation deck will make for an excellent whale-watching experience.
Finally, finish your Juneau experience with an all-you-can-eat salmon bake, where you’ll enjoy a delicious meal including grilled salmon, cheechako chicken, Chilkoot baked beans, Tongass wild-rice pilaf, White Pass pasta, salads, beverages and a selection of side dishes. Top it off with delicious blueberry cake for desert! Beer and wine are available for purchase. Then, sit back, relax and enjoy a scenic ride back to your cruise ship.

Our family was taking a cruise and I was a little skeptical booking an excursion not affiliated with the cruise line but wow what a great experience we had with our Juneau excursion and Viator! The whales, glacier, and salmon bake were top notch. If you are considering this excursion sign up now it is an experience you will never forget. Kirsten, Mississippi
The tour to Mendenhall Glacier gave enough time to view the glacier and the visitor's center. The bus was small enough to be comfortable and not have to wait for lots of people to exit or return. The whale watching boat was comfortable and once again small enough so everyone got a chance to view the whales. The crew was very knowledgeable. We saw many whales, including one that came completely out of the water. This was wonderful. The salmon bake was nice but not my favorite part. Their bus driver was very knowledgeable. The only complaint would be not knowing you have to walk so far to get to the start of the tour. One member of our group had difficulty walking and having to rush to get there was not good. We had to ask multiple people where to meet the tour in the beginning.
