Default Skagway Excursions on Celebrity Mercury

Any advise on the Eagle Preserve Float & Lynn Fjord cruise? And, what is the difference between the above and the Eagle Preserve Wildlife River Adventure? Will I see more on the Glacier Point Wilderness Safari?

I would like to see the most in natural beauty and most wildlife.
Thanks!

For natural beauty, take the ride on the White Pass & Yukon Route. This narrow gauge railroad cuts through some of the most specacular terrain in the world. Built by pick and shovel to haul miners and supplies during the Yukon Gold Rush, it remains a true marvel of civil engineering even by modern standards. The views from the line between Skagway and the Canadian border are spectacular.

You probably will have time to do the ride on the Whiet Pass & Yukon Route and another tour while the ship is in Skagway. Just be sure to allow an hour or so between the return time of the first tour and the departure time of the second tour so you'll have time to grab some lunch.

Norm.

The Eagle trips are out of Haines, and the Lynn Canal is sailed by your cruise ship, if you wish to be out on deck to enjoy it.

Eagles are viewable most everywhere in Alaska, you just have to look and invest the time looking. Out of Haines the numbers of eagles are not there until after the cruise season ends. But you will see plenty of eagles, do not expect any other wildlife. The float trips are very scenic.

Glacier Point is superior for scenery in my opinion.

This is not the place for significant wildlife. Any sightings is a gift.
