Default Excursions in Alaska..

I cruised Alaska 12 years ago and did the flight tour of the Misty Fjords - amazing. But, now I'm going back in May and I am wondering what else I could do.

Don't have a ton of extra cash, and don't really enjoy hiking or biking. I have looked at the excursions offered by Celebrity and there are sooo many to choose from.

I live on Vancouver Island and have access to a lot of similar activities right from home, so I probably wouldn't go fishing.

I am thinking about the dog sleds, ATV tours, and maybe even a crab boat tour with a stop at a lodge to eat your catch. Possibly whale watching as we only see greys from here.. sometimes right from my parents house.

Anyone do anything that I shouldn't miss?

Whale watching is really good in Juneau and we also did one in Victoria, killer whales and did see tons of them. That may interest you, or you may already see Orka's in Vancouver?

Yeah, I have seen orcas in the harbour where I live. Humpbacks are what I am interested in. Also had black bears in my backyard, but never seen a grizzly.

Did the bus/train ride from Skagway to the Yukon and back - great trip!
