Should I spend166.00 on a cruise thru FiJoirds or spend less and do Totem pole saxman excursion?
Spend the money.
Don't do either...
When you get off the boat there are a lot of tour stands around the cruise ship area. For175-$200 you can fly through the Misty Fjords, which is a lot better than either.
I'm with YVR Dave - spend the money. How often will you get the chance?
The problem with trying to get your own deals at the dock is it can be hit or miss. Chances are you might save a bit because the cruise lines is cut out of the middle but there is also the risk of not finding anything available that you like.
Can't advise on the Saxman run as it is pretty new. Misty Fjord is impressive.
