After pickup from your Juneau hotel, your guide takes you to the ice wall at Mendenhall Glacier, Alaska’s approximately 12-mile (19-km) long massive glacier. Take in stunning views and soak up the picturesque mountain atmosphere. 

Then, begin your whale-watching experience. Board a 48-passenger sightseeing boat and cruise along the beautiful Auke Bay. Your onboard naturalist guide provides an in-depth look at the surrounding sea life. Learn how more than 65 humpback whales migrate to the area each year! The extra-large windows and exterior observation deck make for excellent whale spotting.

End your day tasting the flavors of a traditional, all-you-can-eat Alaskan salmon bake. Menu items include grilled salmon, cheechako chicken, Chilkoot baked beans, Tongass wild-rice pilaf, White Pass pasta, salads, beverages, a robust selection of other side dishes and a delicious blueberry cake for dessert. Beer and wine are available for purchase.

You’ll also have the chance to meet Doug Chilton, a Tlingit Master Carver, and his son, as they work on two 10-foot-tall (3-meter-tall) cedar totem poles and silver jewelry. Listen to the artisans share their ancestral lore and culture, and feel free to ask questions. Pick up original works of art as souvenirs from the on-site gift shop.

After your all-inclusive Juneau experience, enjoy a relaxing, scenic drive back to your hotel.

Saw the most incredible sightings of orcas and humpbacks up close. A very memorable viewing of the glacier and great salmon bake. Lots of food and tasted great.

Marvellous experience! Love the tagline of "Full refund if Whale are not spotted". We were surrounded by whales and spot a hill of sea lions. Dinner at Salmon Bake is good as well
