We truly enjoyed al aspects of this tour. The guides were exceptional and we did manage to see several whales. The salmon bake was amazing as was seeing the Mendenhall Glacier. I wish the weather had been less dreary but guess one expects that in September in Alaska!!
We were very pleased with this "triple tour." Wish we had had more time at the Mendenhall Glacier - there was so much to see! The whale watching was outstanding - saw two pods of Orca whales plus eagles and sea lions. The salmon bake was delicious. All staff involved in each area of the tour were great. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this tour.
Great tour. There was miss communication between the local tour company and the bus company. At one point we had to walk and find the bus.
Went on this tour from our cruise ship and it was great to get to see all 3 things in one tour. Salmon bake was tasty, Whale watching was a lot of fun but Mendenhall glacier is the highlight. It really is wonderful
My biggest complaint is that we were told that the Salmon Bake was a "dinner buffet" so we made sure to eat lunch prior to the excursion. However, the very first stop was the salmon bake which we didn't really get to enjoy as much as we would have had we come with empty stomachs. The salmon isn't seasoned but they add a sugar glaze to it that can overwhelm the fish if too much is used.
Mendenhall Glacier was breathtaking and well worth the trip. The whales were really cool but after the first hour, it got pretty monotomous.
