Favorite Alaska excursion?

With Alaska in full swing, I thought I would see what is everyone's favorite excursion.

 

 For me it is The Bearing Sea Crab Fishermans Tour on the Aleution Ballad. I am a fan of the show Deadliest Catch, so for me this was a lot of fun. I go every year.

Bubba 54 likes the Aleutian Ballad. I'm not certain when they started that Bering Sea Crab Fishermen's tour down in Ketchikan, but they certainly have hit a gold mine judging from the hundreds of outstanding reviews. They have taken a real open ocean Alaska crab boat, "Aleutian Ballad" and modified it to accommodate visitors. Last time we were in Ketchikan was 2010 and I don't recall hearing about it then. It undoubtedly is the number one or close to it in the long list of excursions up here.



Some real good ones I like are:



---A J Mine Gastineau Mill Tour in Juneau---Klondike Railroad round trip to White Pass--Skagway---Hubbard Glacier--Not a excursion per se but a side day trip on the ship itself.---St. Elias Wrangell Mountain Day tour from Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge  to McCarthy and Kennecott mill site.---Wonder Lake Day tour at Denali National Park---Helicopter tours in Southeast which land up on the glaciers, there are a number of these.---Mount Denali helicopter tour from Talkeetna, if not helicopter ($$$) fixed wings are also good.



---Two day tour of Nome and Kotzebue, gold rush day mining history and historical aspects of Alaska native life.---Prince William Sound 22 Glacier tour from Whittier.

We are going to Alaska on the 13th. My brother and sister have reserved the dog sledding in Skagway. We will see how they like it.
