  1. Sorry, We stopped at Tutshi Sled Dog Adventure and met Michelle Phillips who operates the facility. I had interviewed here before, but technical difficulties prevented me from getting a good recording. She conducted our tour and it was amazing to see how much the huskies wanted to pull the UTV. We petted the puppies while we were waiting for our turn, and afterwards my granddaughter and I panned for gold. The drive in is amazing and I will be posting video and a blog post about the drive, but it is something to see. After the sled dog adventure, we drove on in to Emerald Lake and it is stunningly beautiful on a clear day, which was what we got, and then on the way back we explored the Carcross Desert and stopped at the suspension bridge for lunch. I had intended to drive over to Dyea, but by the time we got back I needed to return the car and walk back to the ship.
  2. We rented from Avis, and it was about 200 for an SUV. We drove over White's Pass to Emerald Lake, the Carcross Desert, Carcross, the Yukon Suspension Bridge, and stopped at Tutshi Sled Dog tours. You can find a great deal of execellent information in Murray's Guide to the Yukon Territory which is available online. Here is a video with Murray Lundburg who wrote the guide. https://youtu.be/M0SoEqRPemY
  3. Here is a video interview with Jen Leahy from the Seward Visitors Bureau and she outlines what the top attractions.

    Seward Question

    Here is a live interview I did with Jen Leahy from the Seward Visitors Bureau.
  5. I just posted about our trip with Major Marine Tours in Seward. My wife travels with a wheelchair and we found the tour very easy with her chair, and the staff was excellent. You can read about it here. https://www.travelingwithachair.com/index.php/2019/07/17/sunday-afternoon-in-seward/
  6. One port we found very friendly was Seward. I did an live interview with Jen Leahy from the Seward Visitor Bureau and she talked a lot about the accessibility in Seward.
  7. I just posted on my blog about Major Marine's Ressurection Bay tour. If we had more time available, we would have done a longer tour. https://www.travelingwithachair.com/
  8. For those going to Seward, Alaska, either as the starting or ending point of the cruise, here is a video interview I did with Jen Leahy of the Seward Visitors Bureau. I did the interview before we went, and after going, I would say she was spot on. Seward, Alaska

    Icy Straight Point

    I hate to say this, it wasn't Murray that mispelled it, it was me. Not reading what you type is a common mistake. As far as his not knowing the schedule, that was the only thing he didn't know. Murray is an absolute expert having guided in Alaska for years and serving as a guest lecturer for several cruise lines.
  10. Here is a live interview I recorded with Jen Leahy of the Seward Visitors Bureau and she outlines some of the amazing things to do in Seward. We did two of the things she outlined on our cruise, and I wish I had allowed another full day there.

    Icy Straight Point

    Here is a brief video with Murray Lundberg, an Alaska tour guide, guest lecturer for the cruise lines, and author of "Murray's Guide to the South Klondike Highway" .
  12. I recommend renting a couple of vehicles and driving yourself. My wife and I have done that both times, and it works our great.
  13. We drove both times we have gone to Skagway and love the drive and the sights. It is also usually much less expensive than the train for two people.
  14. We sailed the end of May this year and were able visit Tracy Arm and Sawyer glacier without any issue, and we got very close to the glacier. Hubbard is an amazing glacier. The largest tidewater glacier and is about 6 miles wide where it meets the ocean. In an interview with Murray Lunberg who is a retired Alaska tour guide, and a guest speaker for cruise lines, he said that he thinks that Hubbard is more impressive than Glacier Bay.
