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


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.

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.

All went as planned

Nice Jeep was readily available as soon as we got to the rental location, it was exactly what we asked for. They were courteous and prompt and explained how the iPad/tour program worked. No issues with the Jeep, we had an amazing time and it was easily the highlight day of our 2 week vacation. It's also convenient there is a gas station right across the street so you can return the Jeep fueled up.

Great information
October 24, 2023
Very informative. Helpful employees. Our boat didn't arrive until early afternoon, thus I had only the afternoon to enjoy these excursions. An earlier arrival would have offered a better time. Also, I did not realize a photo was included on the boat tour.

Great trip w/Excellent Guide
October 24, 2023
We had a great tour from Vancouver to Butchart Gardens and back. It was a LONG day but well worth it. Our guide and Driver was wonderful, full of interesting facts about where we were going and what we were seeing. We would have stayed at the gardens longer but the rain made us happy to get back to the bus. I recommend this trip!

The captain and crew were very good at telling stories and showing us all the equipment and how it worked for fishing for crab. We pulled up crab pots from out in the straight and they were humorous and very interactive with all of us.

Vancouver Pre Cruise Tour

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. They picked us up at our hotel and took us to meet our tour guide. He was very entertaining and his knowledge of Vancouver was great. We had the best time visiting the Public Market on Granville Island. After the tour, we were delivered right to the cruise terminal. Would definitely recommend.
