Discover Alaska Shore Excursions

Discover Alaska Includes Three Amazing Shore Excursions That Are Included
In Your Cruise / Tour Package

Shore Excursion that are included in our program at the port of call of Ketchikan Juneau, and Skagway, will be operated by Alaska Coach. You will receive information in your Discover Alaska Cruise Package for these Tours.


Historical City Tour
Experience Skagway with Alaska’s original city historical tour to ‘All Points of Interest’ – an informative and fun-filled 90 minutes. Skagway character Martin Itjen came north looking for Klondike gold in 1898, and instead became the town’s most celebrated storyteller. The first passenger Martin took on his Skagway Street Car tour was US President Warren G. Harding. Back then, in 1923, he claimed that there was “nothing like it in the world” and he went on to delight visitors with his motorized sightseeing tour and tall tales for many decades. Today, Martin’s tour lives on in Skagway. You’ll board your bus and sit back and relax as your driver passes on a century of history, behind-the-scenes tales, and stories of life in small town Alaska. Explore the waterfront and National Park Historic District; enjoy the panoramic views from the scenic overlook; and have your camera ready for the re-telling of Soapy Smith’s gunfight at the Gold Rush Cemetery. To capture the history of this gold rush town and the pioneer families that built it, you will motor through the residential neighborhoods of Skagway.

Mendenhall Glacier & Juneau City
Your journey begins with a narrated tour of downtown Juneau and the city’s highlights en route to Mendenhall Valley—home of the mighty Mendenhall Glacier. Your guide will point out many of the attractions that you’ll want to see during your approximate two-hour stay at the glacier area. Scenic Photo Point and the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center are well worth a visit. Take time to watch the short film about the glacier and the 37 other glaciers that make up the Juneau Ice Field. The area boasts several self-guided scenic trails that allow you to learn about the role the glacier had in carving the landscape. Each of these trails offers a different view of the Mendenhall through trees or along the shores of Mendenhall Lake. The Nugget Falls trail takes you to the base of a long glacier-fed waterfall and offers the closest views of Mendenhall Glacier in the area

Guests Using a Wheelchair or Other Mobility Aid Device
I have a disability. How do I know which tours will best suit me? The tours are graded according to the relative level of activity they entail. The activity icons that appear at the beginning of each tour description provide a general idea of the level of activity to expect. Please see page 2 for specific information or speak to an EXC Tours specialist (1.888.425.9376). It is important to keep in mind that tour operators are subject to the laws of their own country with respect to accommodating the needs of guests with disabilities. In most foreign countries, the laws are not as stringent as those in the United States. Will I encounter difficulties (dis)embarking the ship when it’s in port? Please see the on-board EXC Desk to help determine whether you can expect to encounter difficulties (dis)embarking the ship in a particular port of call. The decision whether or not to carry or provide other mobility assistance to a guest and their device (wheelchair, walker, etc.) up or down a ship’s gangway, or on or off a tender boat, is at the sole discretion of the Captain, made based on his evaluation of guest and crew safety. We encourage you to bring a collapsible wheelchair as space limitations may restrict the ability of some tour operators to accommodate motorized mobility aid devices.
