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.

Knowledgeable and interesting
November 30, 2022
Mark has a wonderful background in food and San Francisco. His tour visited some wonderful restaurants and he was able to provide knowledge regarding the owners, food preparation and the cultures that influenced menu. In addition he gave us a tour of some of the murals populating the Mission District and their history. Highly recommend this tour.

Amazing Day!
November 20, 2022
This excursion was amazing! We really enjoyed the open, small skiff experience. There was only one other couple on our boat. The tour group gives you all the gear you need to keep warm while the boat is in motion. Our guide took us right to a spot where the fish started biting immediately! We caught tons of rockfish and a couple of salmon. The camp area where the catch is cooked was really nice and relaxing, with a warm campfire already burning. The food was excellent. Basically, the cook makes a stew with the fish you caught along with potatoes, vegetables and a wonderful broth. We even had cobbler for dessert. We also had a Bald Eagle fly around our boat on the way back to the ship - he was hoping for a free snack! I highly recommend this excursion.

Great Seattle City Tour Excursion
November 12, 2022
Customized Tours did an outstanding job of providing us with an exceptional city tour. Our driver. Captain Steve was awesome. You can tell he really loves his city and his job. We had time to kill between cruiseship and flight home and this city tour really paid off.

Post Cruise North Shore Capilano & Grouse Mtn Tour
November 08, 2022
Taking this tour was a great way to end our vacation after going on a wonderful Alaskan cruise! Our flight was not until 11:00pm so spending the day exploring Vancouver and Grouse Mountain was perfect! We had beautiful weather which was wonderful for exploring and enjoying the suspension bridge, trails, cliff walks, riding the skyride and seeing the grizzly bears! Our driver was excellent and very knowledge which helped to make the day very special!

Skagway City and White Pass Summit
November 08, 2022
We had a wonderful time on this tour!! Skagway is a really cool town in southeast Alaska that has gold-rush-era style buildings. Instead of taking the train on the White Pass Summit, we had a guided tour via van which was awesome! Our guide stopped many times along the way which gave us the opportunity to walk around and take lots of pictures. I'm not sure if the train makes stops like the van did. Our guide was very personable, knowledgeable and flexible to stop whenever we asked! We definitely would recommend this tour!
