Itinerary

When does my tour start?

Humpback and orca whales are actively feeding while they are in southeast Alaskawaters, so chances are you see whales breach, play, and maybe bubble net feed.  You will savor wild Alaska salmon amidst amazing scenery at the Gold Creek Salmon Bake. This easy, full-day tour combines a thrilling whale-watching cruise with a relaxing Alaska Salmon Bake for the best of picturesque Juneau!

Board your transfer at the pier and set off for Auke Bay, a charming waterfront borough 12 miles to the north of downtown Juneau. Soak up the sights as your knowledgeable guide entertains you with expert commentary on the region’s history, culture and outdoor lifestyle.  Juneau’s story has been a colorful one ever since two erstwhile prospectors, Joe Juneau and Richard Harris, discovered gold back in 1880 and put Juneau on the map. Despite its relative inaccessibility, it's been the Alaska state capital since 1959.

Auke Bay, with its pristine marine habitat and dazzling mountain and glacier views, is the ideal place to commence your wildlife cruise. Join your captain and naturalist aboard a state-of-the-art 48-passenger jet boat for non-stop beauty. Remember to keep your camera handy as you slip your mooring and the famous Mendenhall Glacier comes into view (on clear days).

Juneau has a healthy humpback whale population with some 65 whales returning each season to feed in the nutrient-rich waters.  Your captain will let you know when whales are spotted, so get ready to join in the collective chorus of "Oohs!" and "Aahs!" These waters are so rich, whale sightings are guaranteed! In fact, if a whale is not spotted you’ll receive a $100 refund ($50 for children).  You'll watch these whales from the North Star, a 48-passenger vessel, custom built for whale watching in Juneau waters, complete with a hydrophone system for listening to whales communicate under water. 

Binoculars are available for your use onboard. Venture out on the deck to enjoy a panoramic view of your surroundings or to snap a photo. Or, settle into your warm and comfortable interior surroundings to enjoy the scenery and wildlife sightings through the oversized windows. In addition to Steller sea lions, Dall’s porpoise, bald eagles and a variety of sea birds, your naturalist will make sure to scan the shore and point out any bear or blacktail deer sightings and to describe many other aspects of the area’s intriguing flora and fauna. 

Immediately following your cruise you’ll board a motor coach en route to the Alaska Salmon Bake. Featured on Bravo Television’s Top Chef, Gold Creek Salmon Bake is an event that’s been grilled to perfection for 38 years. Savor the aroma of wild Alaska salmon, grilling over a fragrant alder wood fire—the signature entrée of an all-you-can-eat adventure. The sumptuous spread has something for everyone with a variety of Alaskan entrées, sides, and blueberry cake for dessert. Meet Tlingit Master Carver, Doug Chilton, as he and his son sculpt two 10-foot, red cedar totems and authentic silver jewelry.  

Relax listening to live Alaskan folk music in a truly unique, lush rainforest environment under heated, translucent domes. Take a short stroll along a natural salmon-spawning creek to the entrance of the Wagner Mine at beautiful Salmon Creek Falls where you can pan for gold, see mining relics, and look for salmon. Have fun roasting marshmallows over a campfire and taking photos at our interactive, gold rush mural. The food, entertainment, activities, and ambiance make Gold Creek Salmon Bake an Alaskan experience that is much more than a meal. 

A convenient shuttle service departs for the pier every 15 to 20 minutes, so you can return at your leisure. The day's activities will leave you refreshed, relaxed and bubbling over with action-packed tales of this frontier adventure.
