Alaska is one of the most awe-inspiring places on earth.

The largest state in the United States, Alaska is home to 17 of the 20 highest peaks in North America, more than 100,000 glaciers, 3 million lakes, 6,640 miles of coastline, 33,904 miles of shoreline, and more than 70 potentially active volcanoes. In addition to being one of the few places to experience the Northern Lights, Alaska is also home to iconic destinations such as Denali National Park, Kenai Fjords National Park, and Glacier Bay. From Alaska's majestic beauty to its staggering array of wildlife, it is truly a unique destination.

Sailing on a cruise ship is just the beginning of any Alaska vacation. The absolute magnificence and splendor of Alaska can only be fully realized by experiencing an Alaska shore excursion.

Alaska Cruise Excursions to Inspire

Juneau

On one of our Juneau shore excursions, take a float trip on spectacular, glacier-studded Mendenhall Lake, passing by the world famous 2.5 mile-wide Mendenhall Glacier or experience a whale watching cruise and see a humpback whale up close. Other Juneau shore excursion trips include a city tour or gold panning adventure where you can relive Juneau's gold rush history by panning for gold and then enjoying a delicious salmon bake at Salmon Creek.

Ketchikan

In Ketchikan the spectacular Misty Fjords Flight seeing Tour is a must-see experience that will provide a lifetime of memories. The Misty Fjords National Monument is a 2.3-million acre piece of pristine wilderness that must be viewed by floatplane; it is the only way to truly take in its majesty - soaring cliffs, saw-tooth ridges blanketed in trademark mists, sky-blue lakes, endless waterfalls, icy saltwater fjords and miles of glacier-carved gorges. As part of our Saxman Native Village and Ketchikan City tour visit the world's largest standing collection of totem poles and hear the legends and stories of how and why they were made.

Skagway

In Skagway our Helicopter Dog Sledding Adventure day excursion begins with a helicopter ride to a glacier dog sledding camp where you will share this adventure with 80 Alaskan huskies and hear unique personal accounts of the Iditarod, back country experiences and have an opportunity to ask questions. Feel the excitement as the team is hooked up, then you're off! Also from Skagway we offer many Alaskan tours into the Yukon territories including horseback riding and dog sledding adventures. Or enjoy an exciting raft trip down the Chilkat River through the famous Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, the world's largest concentration of Bald Eagles in North America.

Beautiful Nature Walk
October 05, 2022
This was an enjoyable 3 hour trip to a title park and forest. You’ll spend about an hour or less at the totem park. There are facilities to use there if needed, as well as a nice gift shop. Then you’ll head to the forest for a beautiful walk to a waterfall. You’ll also pass a stream where you can see salmon swimming. The owner of the company was our guide. She’s a local woman with a lot of knowledge.

We had a wheelchair with us, and our driver was very helpful and mindful of the limitations that offered. We would have loved to spend more time, but every moment we had was packed with fun information and beauty about

Perfect way to spend the day after cruise
October 05, 2022
This was a tour that picked up from the cruise ship and dropped off at the airport that evening. There were multiple stops, with plenty of time to enjoy each location. Our guide/driver was friendly and knowledgeable, never rushed the guests, and provided excellent information.

A must do when in Skagway
October 04, 2022
The small tour was perfect. The van conversion bus was comfortable. The guide was easy to understand, knowledgeable, and funny. The train ride was stunning with views that made you want to ride the rails for hours. Each train car had a heater and bathroom and was very comfortable.

We were a group of 6 and ended up having this boat to ourselves. The capitan was super interesting and helped to make the day incredible. We saw 8 whales this day along with plenty of other sea-life. Could not recommend more highly

Skagway Float
October 03, 2022
I chose this excursion bcuz I wanted to do something more adventurous while in Alaska. The drive to the location let you see the city and countryside. The stop overlooking the city was breathtaking. The ride down the river was great seeing the natural beauty and habitat. Saw 5 bald eagles on the trip. Looked being off at grid and not with a lot of people. The maximum was 12 people and we only had 5 people. Loved it

Great Driver/Tour Guide - Limited to see
October 03, 2022
Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. Was disappointed in the Mendenhall Glacier. Especially for someone with limited mobility (partner). Hike to the falls was fun.
