Juneau Cruise Port

Free admission

The Juneau Cruise Port sits right alongside the historic downtown area, within walking distance of seafood restaurants and frontier-themed shops. There’s plenty to see and do right off the boat in the state capital, but the port also serves as a jumping-off point for excursions to Mendenhall Glacier and the Alaskan wilderness.

The Basics

After docking at the busy Juneau Cruise Port, popular excursion options combine a city tour of the former mining town with a trip to the nearby Mendenhall Glacier; whale-watching tours in scenic Auke Bay; and visits to Pack Creek Brown Bear Viewing Area, which protects the highest concentration of brown bears on the planet. Alternatively, spend your time in port white-water rafting or ziplining on Douglas Island, gold mining, or enjoying traditional Alaskan salmon bakes.
