Default Mendenhall native canoe trip

Has anyone taken the Mendenhall lake/glacier 12 person native canoe trip out of Juneau? How close to you get to the glacier? Would you recommend this over a trip to the Mendenhall glacier visitors center/salmon hatchery/salmon bake tour?
Thanks! Missy

You do get close views of Mendenhall in the canoe and the 2 tours you have listed are quite different. If interested in the salmon, especially if going prime spawning the hatchery is worth a stop. The Mendenhall visitor center and viewing from land is excellent with full views.

I thought the canoe trip was THE best excursion I went on, and am going on it again this June. You do get very close to the glacier, and to icebergs in the water. You also stop near the glacier and right next to a waterfall on a tiny shore where they put out small refreshements (including smoked salmon). The visitor's center looked VERY far away. The people looked like specs.

Definitely worth every penny.

It's the Mendenhall glacier canoe trip, the only canoe trip to Mendenhall in Juneau. They give full preference to cruise ships, so if you want to go, book through the ship or you may miss out.

Here's the web site and yes, that's just what it looks like. http://www.goldbelttours.com/
