Bus driver, Kyle, was funny, bright and entertaining as well as a excellent driver. The walkways allowed for safe viewing of bears in their habitat, just feet from you. The Mendenhall Glacier was beautiful.
Shortly after we got off the boat, it started POURING rain. It was raining so hard, people were crowding under the store awnings. The rain stopped as quickly as it started and we walked around a bit and then a friend met us and showed us the area by car.
We stayed on the ship in Victoria. We live across the water from this city and have been there several times. The hours in port were 6pm-midnight and we decided to stay on-board.
