I know that you gave me advise before but now am trying to really finalize everything. In Juneau we want to go ona whale watching -Orca- trip what time of the day would you recommend? Also the RR - where do we contact and do you recommend the rr and bus back? sounds like this offers more options for pic etc. Infinity 6/7 sailing. Thanks Marcia
My preference for any tours is to book them for as soon as possible after docking (take the operators recommendation on the time) so to have a large unobstructed block of time for other touring whatever it may be. In Juneau- this could possibly be a Mendenhall Glacier visit and hike, city walking tour to the museums, shopping, riding the city bus to the Hatchery- beyond?? As for the Skagway bus/ train combo your only option is the ship tour. This is a complicated arrangement on your own as each portion would have to be separate and you also have the customs issue. So you need to book this though your ship shore excursion desk. no need to rush and be first on the ship- usually plenty of availablity.
