Ketchikan
Zodiac Boat Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
this excursion was pretty fun we each got to drive our own boat we drove out and seen eagles, star fish and gotta see a mother and her babies killer whales and then went back and had hot chocolate.

for what you did i think the excursion was pretty high price for what you actually get to do.

Mendenhall Glacier Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
it was fun excursion we were suppose to go on whales, bears and glacier but our bear part of the tour got cancelled due to weather which sucked didnt understand why we seen tons of helicopters and planes flying around but they still seemed to cancel ours which sucked!

the glacier park was cool the glacier was breath taking we ended up taking a small hike and came across a mother black bear and her cubs eating salmon in the creek that was really neat


Whale Watching Rating: Not Rated

we purchased tickets for the shuttle to take us to town we paid triple the amount then what this couple told us they paid through a different cruise line and they got to take a boat to town. turns out that it is cheaper and more convenient to take a taxi over the shuttle unless you don't mind standing in line that wrapped around a couple blocks we ended up walking back to the boat instead of standing in line so i really don't recommend that.

Victoria was gorgeous seeing all the old school building was awesome!
