Glacier Bay

The tiny town of Gustavus, adjacent to Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, can be accessed from Juneau by fast ferry, floatplane, or jet. Once there, independent travelers can catch a shuttle to the Glacier Bay Lodge, within the park about 10 miles away, where they can find out about kayak tours, sign up for a whale watch, or go for a hike. Getting out on the water is far more rewarding than staying on land.
