We were on the Radiance 6/15. Juneau we took a float trip by Mendenhall Glacier great river trip we booked thru the cruiseline but try "alaskaadventures.com". Ketchikan if your budget allows you must try "Islandwings.com" a sea plane into Misty Fjords with a lake landing. Michelle the pilot was wonderful. Skagway we were not happy with the Chilkat Eagle trip. We booked throught Shoretrips but were not happy with the local arrangements they made for us. I hear every one that went on Capt. Larry's Whale trip had a great time. In Skagway there is a waterfall (I think Reid Falls) about 2 miles out of town. You can get a car $4.00 each to take you there. Beautiful waterfall worth the walk . Ask the local shops they will know what you are talking about. Have fun and pack that raincoat.

Reids Falls is behind the Gold rush Cementery. It is an easy level 1 1/2 mile walk back through town.

Be advised it is a 3 hour bus transfer Anchorage- Seward- so you will probably arrive later than 5:30pm. You can walk about the town some but really no time for any tours. The Sealife Center may be open late??? if of interest? I have been to Victoria and Vancouver several times- you are in for a treat!!!
