Enjoy the best of Juneau's nature and wildlife on this unforgettable half-day tour. Be amazed by the 13-mile (21-kilometer) Mendenhall Glacier, and take to the water on a whale-watching cruise. As well as humpback whales, there's a good chance of spotting bald eagles, blue heron, and other animal and bird life. This is a must-do activity for travelers who appreciate the grandeur of nature.

I never knew what salmon did in their lifetie. It was incredible to behold the ladder. Who new salmon returned to their birthplace to complete their life cycle. Pretty amazing to witness.

My wife and I were on a tour and one of the stops was the fish hatchery. It is set up very well for visitors to view the salmon ladders and holding tanks and also the hatch lings in huge tanks. There are some exhibits in the lobby area which are very interesting. They also have plenty of staff who narrate your visit and are able to answer all your questions. There were also seals hanging around down in the harbour which were fun to watch. Cool visit and memorable part of our trip to Alaska.

It’s off season so we made a reservation and Amanda gave us a wonderful tour of the hatchery. We actually saw eagles and seals just walking up the ramp to the entrance. We walked inside and Amanda was so friendly and welcoming. Throughout the tour we could tell she enjoyed educating the public about the importance of the hatchery. We learned so much.

Stopped at the hatchery as part of a three part excursion. Learned a lot about how the salmon are raised and then restocked in the waterways.

The salmon return here to spawn. You can see them in huge tanks by the thousands. Then they are returned to the sea to continue their life cycle in the wild.
