Juneau- Best size boat and way to combine whale watch and Mendenhall?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling to Alaska on DCL with our dds (who will be almost 4 and 8 months old) in July. We were planning on just doing the DCL family friendly whale watch in Juneau, but after doing more research we have decided that we would really like to see Mendenhall Glacier as well. Disney offers a combined family friendly whale watch/ glacier excursion, but it seems really pricey for what it is and I'm wondering if we could just do it on our own and save quite a bit of money. Which leads me to my questions: keeping in mind that we're traveling with very young kids, what is the best way to do it on our own and should I look into a smaller boat or larger boat for the whale watch? I've heard mixed things on the size of the boat- some have said the smaller boats can get closer to the animals and some have said that the smaller boats won't get close because of their small size and that the larger boats get much closer. Any advice would be very appreciated!

Thanks!
