ALASKA WHALE WATCH/FLIGHTSEEING REC'S

Jump to last reply

We will be taking a Gulf cruise out of Anchorage in June. Our 2 splurges for this trip will be a whale watch cruise and a flight seeing tour. Questions then are:
Whale watch in Juneau or afterwards to Kenai fjords?
Flight seeing to Denali NP from Anchorage or elsewhere?
We have several days post cruise to enjoy on our own. We want to overnight near Denali and spend a day on the bus. So should we take the train from Anchorage or can we fly (tour) and then land there? Logistics of this? Cost, time suitcases? We will be taking a train from port to Anchorage previously. Therefore because the Yukon Pass Rail seems to be the popular trip from Skagway, should we bypass this as we are already taking train trips and do something else there? Is this a good port for kayaking?
2 more activities we would enjoy if possible – bear watching in case we don’t see any in Denali
A dog sled camp tour? Any info on the Seavy camp? We don’t need a heli/glacier tour, we just want to see the dogs with some info about them.

Thanks, I know it’s a lot of questions, but we want to optimize our time and $ on this once in a lifetime trip.
