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.

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 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.

Whale watching & salmon bake
July 31, 2023
This was a good trip. The whale watching boat was not ideal for comfort, but turned out fine. We saw an amazing group of whales feeding. Very exciting. The salmon bake was delightful. Beautiful setting. Definitely a highlight.

Whale watching, glacier views and Salmon bake
July 31, 2023
Totally awesome tour. Lots of whales, education on whales feeding which happened right in front of us on the excursion with an estimated 25 whales. Such a unique experience. Salmon bake with lots of other delicious foods in a scenic area. This was one of the highlights of our Alaska cruise. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our excursion to whale watch. It was such an exciting and awe filled time. The boat captain did an amazing job in getting us to an area where a pod of grey whales was bubble feeding-just awesome!!! The biologist on board was informative, friendly and made everyone feel welcome. A hi-light of our Alaskan cruise for sure.

Vancouver City Attractions
July 31, 2023
Our guide, Steve, was very knowledgeable about the city and of Alaska. We visited many of the sites in the Vancouver area and received commentary on historic as well as recent developments. The only thing that we missed was not stopping at Lake Hood and getting out of the trolley to view the small float planes while he was telling us about them.

Helicopter and Dog Sledding
July 31, 2023
This excursion was absolutely amazing!! First time on a helicopter ride. The views were breathtaking. Pictures are great but in person was even more beautiful. The dog sled was also very cool. It was everything I was hoping it would be. The guides were informative and answered all of our questions. We liked that it was small group. Highly recommend this excursion.
