Anyone have any ideas what else to do in Juneau and Skagway?

We are doing a whale watching excursion in Jueanu. The one we are doing (in case anybody is wondering) is the Animal Planet Exclusive- Discover Alaska's Whales. It is on a verified research ship and if you happen to see nothing they give you $100/person so in reality you only lose $89.

Anyways, we get off of our excursion at 12:30pm BUT we are in Juneau till 9pm. Anybody have any ideas what else we can do? I just thought I would like to look in the shops and get some lunch. But you can only do that for so long.

Also, we have the Glacier point Wilderness Safari booked for Skagway. We get off of the excursion at 4:30pm and the boat leaves at 8:30.

If anyone has any ideas what else we can do for these ports please let me know? We are also going to Ketchikan but our excursion ends at 12pm and we leave at 3pm.

If you go to the port talk presentation on the ship you may learn about other excursions or things to do in both ports - especially Juneau since you have so much extra time there. Many ports also have tourist info available at the port.

Hope you enjoy your cruise.

We took a helicopter ride to Mendenhall Glacier and landed on the glacier.
