Default First Timers....

Hi All,
Thank you all for your replys. Been doing more reading about the fishing
in Ak. As for what type fishing, definately "ocean". Been reading that salmon,
halibut, and varden should be doable that time of year. Will be either in
Ketchikan, or Juneau. Itinerary.... Land in Fairbanks on Sept. 2, Land tour,
3 day Denali, 2 riverboat tours, Wilderness tour,leisure day Denali, Mckinley
Explorer tour, End of 5th day, cruise ship, 7 day, inside passage south bound,
with stops in Glasier Bay, Haines, Juneau, Ketchikan, to Vancover BC, with
extra day there. Board flight for home on 15th.
Been reading about independent tours at ports being less expensive, but also read some horror stories about possibly not getting back to ship on time, and being left. Being first timers, that is a bit troubling for us. The ship does offer 2 fishing tours. 1 at Juneau, a fly in, and 1 in Ketchikan for halibut. Wife wants to do Whale watching also, so will do that also.
And again, thank you all so kindly for your input.
