Alaska port excursions

Recommended Posts

Going on our first alaskan cruise in July with the family (6 people total, all adults).  Our ports are Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Victoria.  Is there any must do excursions in these ports?  Is one port better for whale watching vs another?  What about fishing? We're pretty much open for any type of excursion. 

 

Thanks!

There's no "must dos" since everyone's preferences are different.

If it was me I'd do a whale watching cruise out of Juneau and the White Pass & Yukon Rail out of Skagway.

I agree...must do is what interests you, not what we say it is.

 

Every one of your ports is discussed here daily, on dozens of threads. A little reading on the board would be very helpful.

If the OP hasn't already done so, then consider reading the trip reports which are organized by year and posted at the top of this forum index.  They are quite fast to skim through, and there are numerous ideas for potential port excursions.

Agreed for Juneau and Skayway.  The gardens in Victoria are a #1 must do IMO.  Words can not describe it!  Most of our AK cruises have had a very short time in port in Ketchikan, sadly.  I love this port - so beautiful!  If you are only there a brief time, it's a great "walk around" port.  Creek Street is lovely.  Alaska stole our hearts the first time we cruised there - it's our favorite cruise destination.
