Juneau Wildlife Whale Watching & Mendenhall Glacier

315 reviews
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.

Seeing a picture of it just doesn't show you the size and grandeur of it. When you are there in person it's really impressive, and COLD. Bring warm jacket, gloves and head covering. Taking the small boats rather than a huge cruise sip gets you much closer.

Went into the Tracy Arm Fjord Inlet and Endicott Arm on a 6 hour excursion from the Nieuw Amsterdam on a small twin hulled boat before it docked in Juneau. Only took about 100 people so was quite relaxing with 2 levels of seating and outdoor viewing areas. Up close to the Sawyer glaciers with also plenty of floating ice and seals to see. Very picturesque inside the Fjord with high rocky walls, waterfalls and even a small whale. Well worth a visit to this remote area.

Our Captain on the Ship Ovation of the Sea was able to get us very near the Glacier. The weather was clear and crisp and the views spectacular. He turned the ship 360 degrees so that everyone got the same views. Great job and beautiful views.

A beautiful cruise on Star Princess that include a view of the glacier. Sorry to see how much it has melted. The inlet's water was a beautiful light blue. Just could not get close enough on the cruise ship but they offered a shore cruise to get up and personal.
