    What to Expect
    Your 6-hour shore excursion begins at Mendenhall Glacier. Snap memorable photos of the glacier that stretches approximately 12 miles (19 km) long. Learn about its formation from the visitor’s center.

    Continue to Auke Bay and step aboard a 48-passenger jet boat for a whale-watching cruise. The exterior observation deck and extra-large windows provide excellent viewing positions to spot humpback whales and other marine wildlife that your naturalist guide on board points out along the way.

    Back on land, dig into an Alaskan salmon bake buffet, with traditional menu items that include grilled salmon, cheechako chicken, Tongass wild-rice pilaf, Chilkoot baked beans, White Pass pasta, salads, beverages, and a selection of other side dishes. Top off your meal with blueberry cake for dessert. Beer and wine are available for purchase.

    Don’t miss the chance to observe a Tlingit Master Carver and his son at work. Watch as they carve into 10-foot-tall (3-meter-tall) cedar totem poles and fashion silver jewelry. Feel free to ask questions about their craft, and listen as they share Tlingit lore. You just might want to stop by the gift shop to pick up original works of art.

    You’ll leave with lasting impressions of Alaska.

    We had a delightful day on this tour. I HIGHLY recommend Vince as your driver if you can get him. He was down to earth, funny, knowledgeable and even gave us tips on avoiding any scams while shopping in Juneau. The first stop was at the Mindenhall Glacier Visitor Center and

    This excursion was pretty much everything you'd ask for in an excursion. Luckily we were blessed with a beautiful day and everything went as planned. Our guides and naturalist were genuinely interesting and didn't act as though they'd told the same stories everyday for the past
