From Sitka, I am beginning and ending an 8 day cruise on a small ship (Admiralty Dream). The only thing that is missing from its itinerary that I'd like is a helicopter ride to a glacier. Wondered what else is recommended if I stay an extra day. Don't want to spend money going far unless it is really special. Here is where we go from Sitka: Kake, Petersburg, Hobart Bay, Tracy Arm, Juneau, Orca Point Lodge, Glacier Bay National Park and back to Sitka.
Also, will be flying in from Seattle. What is likelihood that the flight could be delayed due to weather? Should I book a day earlier than Need to start with group?
This will probably be my only trip to Alaska. Want to have as many new experiences as I can in this short time.
