Question Self Excursions In Alaska

My husband and I are On the NCL Pearl... Aug 16th thru the 20. Juneau, Skagway & Ketchikan.

We're hoping to do some Excusions on our own. Tours seem too pricey.
Does anyone know what is good to do on your own?

Susan & Paul

In Skagway if take the train it has to be thru the cruise line. Trains are usually assigned to certain ships and don't have room for others.

In Juneau & Ketchitcan you can take any tour can buy most tours on the dock.
The only possible issue is that your private tour is late for the ship you need to pay to get to next port. Usually the ship will wait if a ship tour is late.

Ships Sailed:

SS Ithaca , Volendam , Mariner of the Seas (x2) , Veendam , Coral Princess , Island Princess (x3) , Emerald Princess,Sapphire Sapphire (x3),Diamond Princess
