ShoreTrips says...

It is often difficult to make a decision on how you will spend your day in Juneau. This trip combines two attractions into one: a visit to the renowned Mendenhall Glacier and its most popular "residents."

Your adventure begins with a short drive through downtown Juneau all the way to Auke Bay where you will have the opportunity to see humpback and orca whales, Dall's porpoises, stellar sea lions, harbor seals, bald eagles, and more.

Once you board the boat, relax and let your experienced captain lead the way to whales and other wildlife. Since your guides visit the waters daily, they are quite knowledgeable about the social circles of whales and where they congregate. You will learn about life in Alaska, as well as the habits of these mammals.

Next, we're off to Mendenhall Glacier, which attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year! Enjoy overlook point (take plenty of pictures!) and time at the Visitor's Center.

This energizing day will bring you up-close-and-personal with nature.

Please do not jump in the water and try riding the whales. Thank you.

  • Narrated drive to the glacier or to the boat harbor for whale watching
