Juneau Tour Ideas
3 hours 45 minutes
Your driver/guide will entertain you with interesting stories and facts about Juneau on your way to Auke Bay where your captain and naturalist will welcome you aboard the North Star, our state of the art 48 passenger jet boat custom designed for Juneau whale watching—large windows, an outside viewing deck and an amplified hydrophone system for listening to whales communicate under water. You'll have a beautiful view of the Mendenhall Glacier and be provided with binoculars for panoramic views of whales and other marine mammals like sea lions, seals and porpoises. Whale sightings are guaranteed!

Paddle across Mendenhall Lake, navigating past icebergs, surrounded by Alaskan wildlife on an exceptionally stable, 28-foot, traditional Tlingit-style canoe, with all modern safety gear supplied. Venture within a safe distance of the awe-inspiring face of the Mendenhall Glacier and the beautiful Nugget Falls where you will hit the beach and refuel for the return paddle with an Alaskan-style snack. Due to the close approach to the glacier face, the Forest Service tightly controls the number of participants. Be one of the lucky few to experience this one-of-a-kind adventure!
