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.

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.

Excellent Outing; Excellent Guide
December 05, 2023
This was a terrific way to discover the gold rush route out of Skagway -- up the little railway -- we were in the last car, with a lovely view down behind us, and then a short excursion to the suspension bridge over the Yukon river. During the drive down, our excellent guide -- well informed, personable, and humorous -- stopped a number of time for photo ops, as well as telling us fun stories of life in Skagway. Definitely a great shore excursion and worthwhile expenditure.

Eagles and More!
November 10, 2023
We had a wonderful tour guide and a wonderful tour. He brought a high power monocular and we could see all the details of the eagles. He taught us how to spot them in the trees. The scenery was breath taking. Our guide was so knowledgeable with years of living in Alaska, profession and extensive education. It was a private tour for just our family, making it even better! Highly recommend.
