Raye & Marty Trencher's Alaska Cruise Tips
Alaska Cruise Shore Excursions 2017-2018

Alaska is one of the most awe-inspiring places on earth.


The largest state in the United States, Alaska is home to 17 of the 20 highest peaks in North America, more than 100,000 glaciers, 3 million lakes, 6,640 miles of coastline, 33,904 miles of shoreline, and more than 70 potentially active volcanoes. From Alaska’s majestic beauty to its staggering array of wildlife, it is truly a unique destination.

Sailing on a cruise ship is just the beginning of any Alaskan Adventure. The absolute magnificence and splendor of Alaska can only be fully realized by experiencing an Alaska shore excursion. Whether it’s by air, land or sea, exploring the wonders of Alaska cruise excursions will be a once in a lifetime experience.

At Shore Excursions Group, they offer an extensive selection of exceptional Alaska cruise excursions providing their customers with reasonably-priced opportunities to experience the best of Alaska. We’ve even made it easier for you to design your Alaska shore excursion itinerary by creating a selection of Multi-Port Packages that include three of their most popular excursions at a discounted price. Shore Excursions Group offers three different varieties of Alaska shore excursion packages--value, active and adventure—tailored to your personal travel style. Or feel free to create your own itinerary by choosing individual Alaska excursions for each port that you visit based on your specific interests and budget.

On one of their Juneau shore excursions, take a float trip on spectacular, glacier-studded Mendenhall Lake, passing by the world famous 2.5 mile-wide Mendenhall Glacier or experience a whale watching cruise and see a humpback whale up close. Other Juneau cruise excursions include a city tour or gold panning adventure where you can relive Juneau’s gold rush history by panning for gold and then enjoying a delicious salmon bake at Salmon Creek.

In Ketchikan the spectacular Misty Fjords Flight seeing Tour is a must-see experience that will provide a lifetime of memories. The Misty Fjords National Monument is a 2.3-million acre piece of pristine wilderness that must be viewed by floatplane; it is the only way to truly take in its majesty - soaring cliffs, saw-tooth ridges blanketed in trademark mists, sky-blue lakes, endless waterfalls, icy saltwater fjords and miles of glacier-carved gorges. As part of our Saxman Native Village and Ketchikan City tour visit the world's largest standing collection of totem poles and hear the legends and stories of how and why they were made.

In Skagway their Helicopter Dog Sledding Adventure shore excursion begins with a helicopter ride to a glacier dog sledding camp where you will share this adventure with 80 Alaskan huskies and hear unique personal accounts of the Iditarod, back country experiences and have an opportunity to ask questions. Feel the excitement as the team is hooked up, then you're off! Also from Skagway they offer many excursions into the Yukon territories including horseback riding and dog mushing adventures. Or enjoy an exciting raft trip down the Chilkat River through the famous Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, the world's largest concentration of Bald Eagles in North America.

For more active customers they offer a variety of hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing and zip lining excursions in most of their Alaskan ports. For fishing enthusiasts they have many options including salmon fishing, Halibut fishing, skiff crabbing, skiff fishing, fly fishing, or spin fishing. Their fishing shore excursions are offered in Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka.

Why Shore Excursions Group?*
Lower Prices than the Cruise Lines

Their prices are lower than the cruise lines, sometimes up to  40%-50% lower. You deserve to enjoy great experiences without over paying for them. In the rare cases in which prices are higher, it is because their excursions are higher quality and typically involve smaller, more intimate tour groups with fewer individuals per guide.

The people at Shore Excursions Group are extremely focused on delivering excellent experiences. In contrast to the cruise line tours that routinely travel with more than 50 people per tour, our average tour size is only 12 people, offering a far more personalized and enjoyable experience.
Money Back Guarantee
To the extent you are not satisfied with your excursions, they will provide a full refund.
