A total of 4 of us are planning to come between July 5 to July 22, 2008. We are just waiting for all the cruise lines to post their 2008 schedules.
Depending on the salmon runs, the first half of July is just not quite peak season at Pack Creek. If you opt for something just a bit later (last week in July - August) viewings ought to be spectacular.
I might choose Anan for a mid-July trip. Large runs of salmon arrive in KTN a bit before Juneau.
The only way to keep everyone happy is to delete my signature completely.
If anyone wants advice from a life-long Alaskan resident, please don't hesitate to ask.
