2 excursions 2 ambitious?

Hi all,

I'll be in Juneau from 12-10:30 pm for one day in August.

I've been researching the excursions and am really torn between Harv and Marv's whale watch and a helicopter to glacier trip. I can POSSIBLY squeeze in both (I've already talked to Harv & Marv), but I don't know if this is too much for one day? Do you think it's best to stick with one excursion and spend the rest of the day enjoying the town?

Nope... go for it! I've done many jam packed adventure days here.

Happy Alaska Travels!

Yes, go for it, if you'd like, I can give you a link to our helicopter/dog sled trip from this past summer (one of our party did the heli/glacier tour, those pics are there as well).

My advice (which I gleaned from the heli outfitter) is to book your helicopter as late as possibly so the clouds/fog have time to burn off.

that'd be great! i can't book the helicopter tour through my cruise because they're all too early. does anyone know what's the latest time the helicopters go out? is it 5pm?

I second the comment on the photo book. It is awesome! What a great way to preserve the memories. I have thought about doing that, but have never gotten around to it.

Beth, would you share where you got the book put together?

Thanks for all the nice comments on the book...

I put it together on Shutterfly, when I was finished, all I had to do was hit the button and choose what we wanted to order (We ordered it as a 12x12 coffee table book, it's beautiful. Not cheap, but it looks just like a book you'd buy as a memory of where you were, only WE'RE IN IT!!!).

It took evenings and part of one weekend for about 2 weeks to put it together. Once I got the hang of it, I was able to work around the upload time.

We're headed off for another adventure next week, if you'd like to see that book when we get back, send me a PM.

Let me know if you put a book together, I'd like to see!

Thanks Milly for your question, and thanks Beth for that FABULOUS photo diary - that is absolutely outstanding. We are cruising to Alaska for a mere 7 days, but after reviewing your adventure, I can see we will probably want a return visit sometime in the future. WOW! I would love to see your next adventure too. We spent a month in SEA and you have inspired me to create my own work of art. Thanks also to those who responded to Milly - we are wrestling with decisions on what to see each of our days in Kethikan, Juneau, and Skagway (although I think were a set for the Whitepass there). Too many great options, one mere day in each!
