Juneau City with Glacier View and Hatchery

Juneau is one of the most unique state capitals in the United States. Although Juneau isn't an island, it is land locked, and you can only get to it by air or sea. This exciting program will give you an orientation of Juneau, and a stop at Brotherhood Bridge for a view of the Mendenhall Glacier.

Your excursion begins in the historical downtown district, where you will see the streets lined with gift shops, jewelry shops, king crab shacks and local fish restaurants. This Juneau tour will take you right by the Governor's Mansion, the State Capitol, and the world-famous Red Dog Saloon.

Departing the downtown area, you will make your way to famous Douglas Island, a historic mining community, for photo opportunities and panoramic views across the water of downtown Juneau with spectacular views of the cruise ship port.

Continue north to the Valley Area and Brotherhood Bridge. Along the way you will see small harbors filled with Alaskan fishing boats, as well as the Mendenhall Wetland Refuge. On clear days you can also see the majestic Chilkat Mountains. Your next stop will be Brotherhood Bridge where you will have approximately 15 minutes for spectacular photo opportunities viewing the magnificent Mendenhall Glacier, weather permitting.

Your last stop will be at the Ladd Macaulay Visitor Center where you are invited to learn about the fascinating life cycle of salmon, their near shore marine environment, and the inner workings of a hatchery. Through a variety of exhibits and commentaries this center offers a fun and educational experience for the entire family. Get a birds-eye-view of hatchery operations and learn about the life cycle of pacific salmon during an informative commentary by an experienced local guide. Watch millions of baby king and coho salmon grow from the sky bridge in the rearing facility all year. Witness the masses of adult salmon fighting their way up the fish ladder late June - September. Explore the salt water aquariums displaying over 150 species of marine life and interact with local sea critters in the tide pool touch tank area.

Re-board your transportation for a comfortable ride returning you back to the main cruise ship terminal.

Reviewer: m olson
This excursion was great. Turned out only 3 couples signed up for it. Two from our Cruise ship and one from another Cruise ship. The tour guide was young, had only been in the area for 6 months, but he was fabulous. He knew the area and the history, answered all questions and was very personable. He would take photos of you if asked. Again, allowed us to linger at the stops but kept us captivated. He shared a lot about himself and his family and background, and made the tour a real pleasure. Thoroughly enjoyed the time we had and the information about Juneau, the Glacier and the Salmon hatchery. It was a great excursion. Easy to connect up with, just a short walk from the ship.

This was the highlight of our shore excursions. The driver, Bob, was a laugh a minute and really made the experience a great one.
