This is our first (and possibly only) trip to Alaska. We are not the fittest of people, so 'easy' tours are our choice. We want to upgrade our chosen tours to include a Floatplane (not Helicopter
) trip. Can those of you with experience of the ships tours please give us the benefit of your input as to which of the following tours you would do:-
In Icy Strait (Hoonah) we are booked on the "Whale & Marine Mammals cruise" and there is no available tour which includes a floatplane.
In Juneau, we have another 'Whales' related tour booked - "Mendenhall Glacier & Whale Quest" - query whether to cancel this and book the "Taku Glacier Lodge Flight & Feast" ?
Or, in Ketchikan, we are currently booked on the "Misty Fjords and Wilderness Explorer" - query whether this would be the better trip to cancel and upgrade to the "Misty Fjords Seaplane Adventure"?
Hoping some of you can give us guidance, and then all I have to worry about is whether there is still availability on the floatplane tours.
Thanks for your time.
