Overview

When your ship is docked in Juneau, soak up Alaskan beauty and wilderness on this combo tour — a Viator Exclusive that is available nowhere else. A comfortable coach whisks you around the landmarks of Juneau city, including the Capitol Building and Red Dog Saloon, and then drops you off at Auke Bay for a 2-hour whale-watching cruise. Get your pics of humpbacks and orcas, and then independently explore Mendenhall Glacier before hopping on a shuttle back to port.
  • Enjoy three fantastic Juneau experiences with this Viator Exclusive shore excursion
  • See top Juneau sites including the historic Red Dog Saloon and Juneau Capitol Building on a sightseeing coach tour
  • Spot whales and other native wildlife on a 2-hour whale-watching cruise
  • Enjoy free time to explore Mendenhall Glacier at your own pace
  • Admire views of Mendenhall Glacier from several perspectives and learn about glacier formation at the visitor's center
Begin your Viator Exclusive Juneau shore excursion with a city tour aboard a comfy coach. Travel from the vibrant port, with views of beautiful mountains and waterways along the way, and pass popular sites including the Juneau Capitol Building, the Governor’s Mansion, Douglas Island and the Red Dog Saloon. Hear about their colorful history from the informative commentary on board.

Next, it’s time to hit the waters. Board a boat from Auke Bay for your 2-hour whale-watching cruise and delight in seeing an array of wildlife, including seals, sea lions, bald eagles and black bears. When humpback whales and orcas are sighted, the boat will slow down so that you can capture the perfect action shot. Hungry or thirsty in between sightings? No problem, snacks and beverages are available on board.

Then, you’ll be driven to Mendenhall Glacier, one of 38 glaciers flowing from the massive 1,500-square-mile (3,885-sq-km) ice field. The shuttle back to Juneau port leaves every 30 minutes, giving you flexibility to get to know the glacier at your own pace.

You may want to walk along Nugget Creek Falls or Photo Point Trail, which winds along Mendenhall Lake and provides clear views of the glacier. Interested in knowing more about the glacier’s formation? Discover interactive geological exhibits at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center.

When you’re ready to leave, hop on the shuttle to return to Juneau port.

Please note: This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy. This tour provides about 30 minutes to 45 minutes at Mendenhall Glacier. Plan your time accordingly at the glacier and ensure your timely return to the port. If you would like to stay longer, you may have to skip the city tour.

Viator Exclusives combine unique experiences and great deals — from traditional tours to once-in-a-lifetime experiences — and are not available from other 3rd-party online sellers.

Whale watching cruise was excellent--saw humpbacks and an orca--along with seals and sea lions. Crew was fantastic--Brenden, Ed, and the young woman whose name escapes me at the moment! were knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. Absolutely don't miss this part of the tour. The city tour was less than expected--driver used foul language, got frustrated with traffic and with passengers asking him to pause for photo ops. Negative about tribal/city relations. And, most disappointing of all, we had 15 minutes at the glacier. 15 minutes!!!! Our advice: do NOT book this combo tour--pick and choose the parts of it that fit in to your schedule.

Loved this tour from the moment it started. Definitely a must if youve not been to Alaska before, and excellent value for money.

Although we purchased the whole package we choose to only do the whale watching portion. Our bus driver to the dock and our guide and driver on the whale watch were very friendly and knowledgeable. The weather was so foggy it was very hard to see much but they were relentless in the search for whales. We were able to see about 3 humpback whales. I am giving a 5 rating because I am sure had the weather been clear we would have had much better luck. If we are lucky enough to go back to Alaska I would not hesitate to use this tour company again.

The tour company for the bus taking us were a bit rushed and unsure of who was going on the tour so by the time the glacier trip arrived...there was no time to do it as 20mins before the whale watching.....Personally, I would just stick to the whale watching as the team who take you are great and the experience of seeing the whales, is wonderful....

The whale watching was great. The young men who toured us on the boat were so friendly, informative and just great to be with them. If had to do over, probably wouldn't take the Juneau part. We had hoped to see and learn a little more about the Capitol. That part of the tour wasn't very interesting. The tour person should be more enthused about that area. Wish we could have seen more of Mendenhall Glacier. So, don't miss the whale watching and Glacier!
