Juneau Wildlife Whale Watching & Mendenhall Glacier

315 reviews
Enjoy the best of Juneau's nature and wildlife on this unforgettable half-day tour. Be amazed by the 13-mile (21-kilometer) Mendenhall Glacier, and take to the water on a whale-watching cruise. As well as humpback whales, there's a good chance of spotting bald eagles, blue heron, and other animal and bird life. This is a must-do activity for travelers who appreciate the grandeur of nature.

We arrived around 8:00 AM and had the whole place to ourselves. We took the little hike on the gravel path to the waterfall. Didn't see anyone until we were coming back. The visitor center was closed due to Covid, but we'll catch that next time. Easy walk and places to stop and rest if you want.

All the helicopter rides to the Mendenhall Glacier were sold out, so I went to the Visitor Center. The Center had several good presentation and a lot of good displays. Also had really good views of the Glacier.

It is not far from city center; however, it was a rainy day when we went and difficult to see but you can tell how massive it is even so. Recommend going on a clear day so you can also hike to the falls.

Very small and not a lot of info in this visitor center. They do have the stamps for your passport, but get out and talk the walk to the glacier!
