Mendenhall Glacier was fantastic and it is worth the walk to Nugget Falls. We had only 1 hour at this location so it was somewhat rushed. It was very crowded when we went. The young man at the Robert's Tram location for Dolphin, was totally inept. We ended up walking to their bus ourselves after waiting close to 30 minutes for it to arrive. He didn't even look at us after we checked in with him. Come to find out, we needed yellow wrist bands for the glacier but he didn't provide that either.
Felt that it was rather pricey to ride this tram. The view at the top of Mt. Roberts was awesome. We hiked to Father Brown's Cross but then it started to rain so we decided to get back to our ship. Had planned to take the tram later to view the movie (and get our moneys worth) but it was raining too hard so we opted to stay on the ship.
The whale watch was good and we did view a few whales. Dall's porpoises played by our boats. This tour provided salmon spread on a bagel (yummy) and water/coffee too.
We opted to walk around the town on our own particularly the Creek Street area. All the streets were clearly marked. The visitor center is also very nice.
Even in the pouring rain, this was a delightful show. It was informative and entertaining at the same time.
We took the public bus line to Totem Bight State park ($1 per person, one way). The bus runs on the hour. We viewed the Totem poles and the Clan house well with in an hour. May have spent longer there but the rain was miserable. Don't miss the totem and souvenir next door to the park. This place is a museum in of itself with old cars and guns.
We had walked into town and happen upon a tour in progress with a National Park Ranger. This young man did an excellent job walking us around town explaining it's history and it's Free!
Hiked to Yakutania Point & Smuggler's Cove. The point was nice but we made a wrong turn going to the cove and ended up down a totally different trail.
This train ride is a must do. We had several people mention doing it. I would not book through Shoremanager.com again. The rail road depot had no record of our booking. Gave us somebody else ticket with the same last name. We had paid with a Discover Card and these folks used a Visa. Contacted ShoreManger via email and they have not responded.
