We did not do an excursion but walked to town. The town is not much to look at but the people were nice. The walk was the best part. It is 1 1/2 mile to town. The touristy area of this port it the icy strait point where they have a long zip line and other things to do. I loved walking on the beach and looking at the rocks.
We did a gold panning excursion. Was expensive but they took us up in the mountains to gold creek to pan. I took my shoes off and waded for 5 minutes before my feet froze. The town was nice but we didn't have time to do the tram or mendenhall glacier. Make sure you do the tram but buy your tickets on the boat.
My favorite port. We did an excursion from foxshores. It was a motor coach to White pass. It was wonderful. We got a picture in front of the welcome to Alaska sign and saw snow flurries. We got to come back through border security.
Make sure you start early and go to the state park or to the Saxman area. We didn't book the tour but tried to take public transportation and it was too sketchy. We never made it. We walked around town and looked at the totems in town and shopped. Married mans trail was beautiful. Its behind the Creek street area which was very interesting.
Norwegian staff who transported our luggage broke my daughters wheel right off her suitcase. Another person in our party had her luggage broken too. Don't let them take your luggage to the dock. Take it yourself.
