Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

We were the first of four ships to arrive in Ketchikan. The first couple hours were nice but then there were WAY too many people in this little town. We went back to the ship because everything was packed!

Whale Watching Rating: 5+ out of 5+

After Ketchikan Juneau was terrific. Even though there were four boats in it didn't seem that crowded.

We took a whale watching tour with Harv and Marv's and it was the highlight of our trip. The boats are small and their employees are fantastic. Can't remeber the guys name that drove the shuttle but he was terrific. Then we had Captain Steve and I can't imagine ever having a better man or captain to be around. He way exceeded any expectations we ever had! Wouldn't even consider going out again in Juneau with any other tour and especially would request Captain Steve!

White Pass Scenic Railway Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Took the White Pass Railway on a pretty nice day. The scenery was amazing. After 3 hours or so I was ready to get off though. Especially since on the way back the wind blew the diesel smoke thru the cabin.
