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. Whether it's by air, land or sea, or seaplane, exploring the wonders of Alaska Tours and excursions will be a once in a lifetime experience.

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.

Active

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.

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.

Small Town, Big Fun
October 31, 2022
Skagway was one of our more enjoyable stops. The sites and natural beauty of the area were truly awesome. That being said, our guide "Brian", made for an educational and entertaining jaunt across some beautiful mountain ranges into the Yukon. Definitely one we would do over.

Bus Tour
October 25, 2022
Best of three tours that we experienced in Alaska! I am very happy that I did not book the train as there had been an avalanche that prevented people from going on the excursion. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, funny and literally went the extra mile to provide a memorable experience!

One of the Best
October 21, 2022
The Yukon Excursion is definitely one of the best excursions we have been on. My wife and I have been on many trips and this is the best. Great guide, very knowledgeable. Easy crossing the border both ways. I would recommend to anyone going to Alaska.
