The Mendenhall Glacier and Whale Watching are two of the main attractions in the Juneau area. Doing these two options as a combo tour will allow you to be as efficient as possible with your time in Juneau.
Juneau is the most unique state capital in the entire United States. Although Juneau isn't an island, it is land locked and you can only get here by air or by the sea.
Your tour begins at the base of majestic Mt. Juneau in the historical downtown district. You drive through downtown where you will see the streets lined with gift shops, jewelry shops, king crab shacks and local fish restaurants. You also get a glimpse at the governor's mansion and if you're lucky, you might even see the world famous Red Dog Saloon.
We will make our way north and on our way to the Mendenhall Glacier, we will pass a real Alaskan boat harbor, full of Alaskan fishing boats and boat houses. We will also drive by a wet land refuge and in a distance you will get to see the majestic Chilkat Mountains.
Once you arrive at the glacier you will have some time to walk around the visitor center, which has an elevated view of the glacier or feel free to walk down Photo Point Trail which winds along Mendenhall Lake for an unobstructed view of the glacier face. The visitor center also has a short film about the Juneau Ice Fields and is very informative. Admission to the visitor center is included in the price of the tour.
Then it's off to experience the whales' playground. You'll cruise in a fully enclosed and heated cabin onboard our "mammal friendly" jet boat where you can experience a close encounter these beautiful marine mammals.
