50th birthday in Juneau (not on a cruise)

We are going to be in Juneau for my 50th (July 26-Aug 3, 2014). We will have come from 5 days in Glacier Bay National Park. We only have 3 days in Juneau. We love hiking, wildlife viewing and anything outdoors.

That said, I want to do something spectacular on my birthday (Aug 1). I'm torn between a helicopter ride/ glacier hike combo or a Tracy Arm Fjord cruise. I don't generally like tours and enjoy independent activities more. Also, we will be taking the Alaska Marine Highway from Glacier Bay to Juneau as well as a boat tour in Glacier Bay so we will get a lot of boat time.

Would love to get some help here. Let me know if there is something else I may have overlooked.
