Description
When your cruise ship docks at the Juneau port, walk an easy 10 minutes to Mt Roberts Tramway, where you'll hop on a comfortable coach for a Juneau sightseeing tour. Enjoy views of stunning mountains and winding waterways as you travel from the colorful port and see sites such as the Red Dog Saloon, the busy Juneau Capitol Building, the Governor's Mansion and beautiful Douglas Island. This unique modern capital city with an old-world charm has a new surprise around every corner.
After your city tour, you’ll be driven to Auke Bay to board a boat for your 2-hour whale-watching cruise. Enjoy gorgeous ocean views as your professional guide helps point out whales and other wildlife such as bald eagles, seals, sea lions and black bears. Watch for humpback whales and playful orcas – when you spot one, the captain will slow the boat to allow for photo opportunities from the viewing deck. Snacks and drinks will be provided on board.
When you return to the port, hop back on the coach and head to Mendenhall Glacier to explore independently at your leisure. Juneau’s crowning jewel treasure, Mendenhall Glacier is one of 38 glaciers flowing from the giant 1,500-square-mile (3,885-sq-km) ice field.
Capture vistas of the glacier from several perspectives such as Nugget Creek Falls and Photo Point Trail, which winds along Mendenhall Lake and offers an unobstructed view of the glacier's face. At the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, you can learn about glacier formation through a series of interactive geological exhibits.
When you’re ready to leave, hop on the shuttle and head back to the Juneau port.
The shuttle departs every 30 minutes, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Juneau. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy your time at Mendenhall Glacier and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

Please note: This tour provided 30 minutes to 45 minutes at the glacier. if you would like to stay longer, you may have to skip the city tour portion to accommodate that.
