Alaskan shore excursions in July

Jump to last reply

There will be eight of us (2 brothers and 1 sister w/ spouses) taking a cruise in early July. We would like to consider doing our own excursions rather that booking from the cruise line in order to do more that one thing at each port as well as saving some money. We'll be stopping at Haines, Ketchikan and Juneau. Is it possible to find local tour operators just off the ship? Which ports would be best to book a fishing charter? Would a rental van for all eight be an option at one of these ports?
Any advise my Fodor friends could supply would be appreciated.
