skagway excursion


bella c

We are on the coral princess July 12 with the first stop in skagway. There are 20 different land adventures and only 10 hrs in the day. We need some help in narrowing it down. The Glaacier Point Wilderness Safari is one we are considering. Also the Dyea Bicycle adventure. Everyone says to do the White Pass train but that means sitting on a train for 3 hours. If anyone can help we would appreciate it. We want to see wildlife and whales and go salmon fishing. Help so many things to do so little time. We are on a 5 day land package with 2 days in Denali if that helps.


If you want whale watching I would do that out of Juneau not Skagway. I would go with Capt Larry at Orca Enterprises in Juneau for that. Ketchikan is a great place for fishing. I have seen many people have good luck with fishing there. I personally liked the White Pass Railway but you can do other can be more active.


Princess offers a trip into the Yukon by bus and return via the railroad. This is one of the best excursions we have taken.

This time we are taking the water taxi to Haines and renting a car to go the the Bald Eagle Wildlife refuge and are really looking forward to it.
