Hi I'm taking a cruise with carnival in aug. when in alaska we stop in skagway ketchitan and juneau. I want to see bears and eagles and whales. Basically as many wild animals as possible. However the cruise excursions are sooo expensive. Do you think i'll see eagles and whales from my cruise ship and then i can spend the money on a different excursion? If i knew i would see the eagles and bears and whales from my cruise ship or from the shore somewhere off port, i could do helicopter dog sledding combo! Please any advice related to wildlife excursions would be so helpful!
