Icy Strait
Whale Watching Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Loved Icy Strait Point. We went whale watching with Glacier Winds, which was a great family-run operation. Loved every minute. We didn't have much time to explore the town afterwards, opting for a beer in the restaurant by the cannery after our busy day. It looked like there were some pretty walks nearby. Probably a port where you need to arrange to do something, rather than expect to be entertained by shopping or walking around town.

Mendenhall Glacier Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Juneau was a great town - we explored a little before our Glacier helicopter tour with North Star Trekking. It was amazing on the glacier, brilliant experience and well-worth the hefty price tag for the excursion. Afterwardsm, we took the tram to the top of Mount Roberts, and took in the views. The restaurant up there has a great balcony, where we drank a pitcher of Alaska's finest beer, and enjoyed the peace and quiet, with eagles soaring above.

Zodiac Boat Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Took an excellent excursion with Ketchiken Outdoors, driving our own Zodiac boat around, checking out the views and wildlife. What a fab day! That took up most of our time in Ketchiken, but we also hung out in a cool bar, The Asylum, where they offered free Oysters, excellent beers, and in-bar take-away service from the Burger Queen next door - how can that be beaten?! Would have liked to see more of the town, as we didn't even make it to Creek Street.
