Float plane  (2 Answers)

Going to Juneau in June. Debating whether to take a 5 glacier float plane tour or just go to Mendenhall Glacier?? I realize these are two different experiences. We will be on a cruise doing just the inside passage for the week. Guess I am wondering if we will see enough of glaciers on the cruise. Thanks so much. Of course any suggestions are appreciated.

Gold Creek Salmon Bake  (3 Answers)

I am going to be visiting Juneau in a couple of weeks on a cruise line.

Also would I need rain boots for this adventure? Trying to pack accordingly. Any help is greatly appreciated. I also will be there for about 9 hours so any suggestions on what to do on a budget. Also was thinking of going to the Alaskan beer company facility.

Getting back to cruise ship from Mendenhall Glacier after hours  (3 Answers)

When does the "blue bus" stop running from Mendenhall Glacier to the cruise ships in early June? Later in the evening (~7 or 8pm) are there taxis readily available when leaving the glacier? Or do you have to schedule one hours in advance? Or the city bus, is it available later if we walk the mile and a half to the bus stop?
Thanks!

1 day in Juneau/ August  (8 Answers)

I will be arriving by cruise ship and been trying to find things to do without excursions. Heard a lot about Captain Larry @ Orca enterprise...is it worth booking. Does anyone know if Holland America books through them. Mendenhall Glacier, I want to see, should I do it by air or on foot. If so who should I use. Do you think I will have enough time to do both and use local transportation? Also I'm interested in doing the Zipline should i do it in Juneau or in Ketchiken? Hope you can help me out, don't know when I'll be back and want to do it right.

Questions about May trip  (1 Answer)

Hi,

I am traveling to Alaska on a cruise ship and have a full day in Juneau. I have a couple of questions that I am hoping some people have feedback on:
1). I will be in Junaeu on May 6th. I plan on going to Mendenhall Glacier. I noticed they have 3 shorter trails. The question I have is whether these trails (photo point, trail of time, and morraine ecology trail) are gromed (do they remove snow from the trails) or will you need to be prepared to walk on snow? Will it be warm enough to walk around on the trails?
2). I have read up on Glacier Gardens and seen mixed reactions (tourist trap versus good attraction). Thoughts?
3). Is Macaulay Salmon Hatchery worth a trip in early May when salmon aren't swimming up ladders?

Thanks
