My 2 cents:

Ketchican - if you are into wildlife, August is bear time and Michelle at
Island Wings takes a small plane to Neats (sp) Bay to see them or to
Misty Fjords - unbelievable scenery. She landed the plane on a small
island. This was probably our most memorable excursion ever!

Juneau - Whales!! Capt. Larry takes a fast boat out and you are very
close to the humpbacks. He will drop you off later to take in Mendenhall
Glacier. We even had time to take the Mt Roberts tram for the scenery.
There is a wonderful place that had some Halibut Fish Tacos that were
great (Twisted Fish)!!

Skagway - I would do the train ride. Not a lot of activity, but as said, the
scenery is worth it. Then you can walk around the tourist town and go
to the Red Onion Saloon and see the bordello! Kind of a Pat O'Brien's
type atmosphere.

Wish I was going back with you!!
