After pickup from the cruise port, your guide will take you on a brief city tour of Juneau, Alaska’s capital. From there, head up to Gold Creek and Last Chance Basin, where you’ll learn all there is to know about gold panning, the simplest form of gold mining. Get the hang of it with help from your guide, and then try it on your own! Everything you find is yours to keep. You’ll receive an Orelove Brothers Gold Claim Certificate, signifying the gold you’ve discovered.
After you’ve built up an appetite, travel by bus to the traditional Alaskan salmon bake! Your lunch or dinner (depending on your choice of tour time) includes grilled salmon, Cheechako chicken, Chilkoot baked beans, Tongass wild-rice pilaf, White Pass pasta and more! Eat as much as you like, and then roast marshmallows by the fire or take a walk to the historic Wagner Mine. You can take the shuttle back to the port whenever you wish. Buses run based off of cruise schedules for the day.

Kids had a great time panning for gold and the food at the Salmon bake was fantastic. Our guide, Tom, was a wonderful and entertaining individual who took great care of us. It was a great day and well worth the money!

Panning for gold was a great experience. The Salmon Bake was awesome. We even saw the salmon swimming up stream to spawn (mid Aug) food was good, nice picnic grove atmosphere.
