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. 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 Alaskan Tour Adventure. The absolute magnificence and splendor of Alaska can only be fully realized by experiencing an Alaska shore excursion. Whether it's by air, land or sea, exploring the wonders of Alaska Tours and excursions will be a once in a lifetime experience.

We offer three different varieties of Alaska shore tour packages - value, active and adventure - tailored to your personal travel style. Or feel free to create your own itinerary by choosing individual Alaska cruise excursions for each port that you visit based on your specific interests and budget.

Alaska Cruise Excursions to Inspire

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.

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.

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 mushing 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.

For our active customers we offer a variety of hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing and zip lining cruise ship excursions in most of our Alaskan ports. For our fishing enthusiasts, we have many options including salmon fishing, Halibut fishing, skiff crabbing, skiff fishing, fly fishing, or spin fishing. Our fishing shore excursions are offered in Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka.

Alaska's not the only ultimate destination on the eastern Pacific. If you're looking for a warmer adventure, a Hawaii shore excursion might be just the ticket.

Best Alaska tours to glacial lake.
The PERFECT day.
October 24, 2021
Our canoe trip to the glacier was the best excursion we have ever taken. The guides were excellent and our crew were very good at rowing. The weather was perfect and the lake was like glass. Getting that close to a glacier was pretty cool too! Definitely take this tour!

Excellent, exclusive experience

Not only was our tour guide informative, but had a lot of details for us to better experience the tour and set us up for success at Mendenhall. We were among 2 other parties which allowed us to socially distance on the motor coach. Very pleased with this tour.

Breathtaking Expereince

Don't think, just do it. Worth every penny. Once in a lifetime opportunity. Knowledgeable staff and amazing pilots. We were taken to Hebert Glacier, away from the swarms of cruise excursions. Small groups made for a more personal experience. 100% would book this again if ever given the chance to return. LOVE LOVE LOVE

Time at Glacier was great. Expected a little more than just a ride to Mendenhall Glacier. A quick ride through the city was disappointing. Driver was knowledgeable and friendly.

Best Excursion on the whole Cruise
August 16, 2021
Frank was absolutely hands down the best tour guide ever! We saw six or seven Bears, I actually lost count! Also we got to see two deer! Frank is so familiar with the island he knew all the best places to go! The group was small which was wonderful! Frank was very knowledgeable about all the wildlife and vegetation! This excursion was the BEST one out of all of them we did! Thank you SO very much for making our cruise spectacular!

Lucas led our tour! He was so knowledgable and enthusiastic, we really got alot out of it and learned so much. It was a beautiful day and he took us to the most beautiful sights. I would come back and take a tour led by him again.

Great excursion!
July 28, 2021
This was a great excursion. Jim picked us up from the ship and was very friendly. He took us to the downtown area after the trip and was very helpful letting us know what to do. The actual flight was awesome! The pilot (also named Jim) gave very interesting running commentary while in flight. I would do this excursion again if ever in the area.
