We will be sailing on 8/19 on the Sapphire Princess with our 10 year old daughter. In Sagaway we are deciding between Dog Sledding and Flightseeing, Chilkat Bald Eagle Raft Trip and the Yukon RR. In Ketchikan we are dciding between Misty Fiords Flightseeing and Anan Creek Bear Viewing. Which would be the most novel and the best for a 12 year old?
Of your Skagway list, definately the glacier dog sledding. Way ahead of the other two. BUT have back up plans as this is the most canceled tour in Alaska. Skagway is a great walk around town.
For Ketchikan, Anan- definately. But are you going to Denali Park?? Anan is mostly blacks- salmon eaters. Denali Park browns, nonsalmon, so half the size of Coastal brown bears. It depends on your priority??
Thanks for the info Karen. Do you have any ideas for good alternative plans that can be easily booked or easily cancelled at the last minute? If we go to Fish Creek in Denali and take a flightseeing tour of Mt. McKinnley is Annan a novel experience?
