Tour description provided by Viator

Join us for Whale Watching in our cool Alaskan waters and then view one of 38 glaciers from the Juneau Ice Fields - the spectacular Mendenhall Glacier. We guide you on a 2 hour whale watching tour, spotting Humpback whales and other wildlife. Then off to the Mendenhall Glacier to spend some time hiking, watching fish spawn at Steep Creek or enjoy an outstanding view from the Visitor Center.
On your way to the boat harbor, listen to informative commentary from your driver about Alaska's capitol city - Juneau.  Aboard our smaller 24 or 49 passenger whale-watching boats, enjoy a comfortable heated cabin with wide-viewing windows and spacious decks for wildlife spotting.  When our captain spots the whales, the boat slows and you'll step out on the deck for that perfect whale shot.  The on-board Naturalist is full of information about Alaska’s wildlife – Humpback whales, Stellar sea lions, Dall’s porpoises, bald eagles. A small snack and water are available. The Mendenhall Glacier is the next stop with the visitor center included in your tour. Find out about the formation of glacier’s and walk to Photo Point, Steep Creek or take the Trail of Time. Nugget Creek Falls is the most popular trail which can take up to 1 hour 15 minutes. When you’re ready to leave, take the shuttle bus to return to Juneau’s port – the schedule is flexible to allow a shorter or longer time at the glacier, depending on your ship schedule.  It leaves every 30 minutes from the glacier. Afternoon tours are reversed – the first stop is at the Mendenhall Glacier, with an appointed time for the pick-up at the Glacier
