Marked one off my bucket list!!! Saw 5 humpback whales up close and personal and got some great videos! Really cool town too! I recommend the Allan Marine whale watching excursion...great job guys!!! Saw sea lions playing too along with about ten bald eagles!
Arriving in Juneau was like being in a postcard. The water was a bright green, the mountains more dramatic and covered in tall, green trees. Lots of old, colorful buildings cover the coastline. You absolutely cannot miss visiting the Mendenhall glacier. Truly some of the most spectacular scenery you will never find anywhere else. It's about a mile walk in each direction. Take your time walking there as you might spot some bald eagles in the surrounding forest or a bear in the trees. I stopped several times to snap some pix.

Beautiful city. We did the whale watching excursion. It was fun and we saw about 15 whales.

Juneau is a very neat town. You have to see the mendenhall Glacier. It's spectacular. If you don't mind walking it's about a mile walk on a good trail to marble falls. If you don't want to walk that far it's just a short distance on a good trail to a scenic point where you can see the falls, Glacier, lake and the surrounding mountains. The city is nice and easy to move around in. Try the Twisted Fish for lunch. Excellent clam chowder.
We rented a car from Juneau Car Rentals and loved every minute of it! Went out to Eagle beach, skaters cabin, Mendenhall Glacier, Macaulay’s salmon hatchery and then to downtown. Loved not being on a “tour time table” and being able to do our own thing! Would absolutely do this 100 times again!
We saw bears at Mendenhall Glacier .

Whale watching tour was great. Saw so much wildlife ... sea lions, bears, eagles, whales. Whales didn’t show off, but you can’t tell wild animals what to do. 😎
Make sure that you go visit Mendenhall glacier. Also the hike out to the falls is worth the time. Walking around an old Juneau, is a fun experience as well.

Because we purchased an expensive camera for this cruise, we were very excited for our Juneau excursion. We booked Gastineau's Photo Safari: it includes a whale watching trip and a nature hike to the Mendenhall. Here's the twist, though: our guide was an expert in both whales and photography. Gastineau puts a cap of 14 people per group on this excursion so you get tons of personal help with whatever camera you bring (and Kristin was even very helpful with folks who only had a cell phone camera). Kristin's lessons are entirely responsible for the excellent photos we were able to take from the White Pass Rail and from the cruise ship in Glacier Bay. We were THRILLED with this tour.
