We are going on a Princess cruise and will be in Juneau on July 7, 2014; Skagway July 8th and Ketchikan on July 10th (but only from 7:00am-12:30pm).
We (2 adults) would like to take a sea plane to visit the bears but can't pay more than $500. per person. We need to be picked up or an ez walk from the port, not an airport. I saw an excursion but it also involved kayaking which we're not interested in. Some private tour companies are more than $600. We don't need an all day trip, 1/2 day is fine.
Thanks for any suggestions to tour companies and where we have the best chance of seeing bears the 2nd week in July.
