Juneau Alaska Private Trips

Your wilderness experience will be the very best that Juneau has to offer!

We have always specialized in arranging private tours and charters for small groups visiting Juneau, and we are happy to set up a unique adventure for your group. We have provided tours and experiences for birthdays, family reunions, business travel groups, photographers and Geosite participants, just to name a few.

Custom tour options are exclusive and created to allow your group to do what they want, when they want. Private guided hikes, local sightseeing, up-close wildlife viewing or a private shuttle at your service are just some options. Charter one of our premier safari vessels to take you out to the waters surrounding remote Admiralty Island National Monument, also known as the “fortress of bears”, for an unforgettable day trip.

Select Your Cruise Line to Book this Tour : why ?

Reserving shore excursions online is the fastest, most convenient way for you to confirm your tours. Your cruise line will handle the request and in most cases have your tickets waiting in your stateroom when you arrive. If the cruise ship delays or if there is inclement weather, then the shore excursion department will take steps to inform you of any time changes or cancellations. And if your tour runs late, the ship will remain in port or they'll arrange transportation to the next port of call at no expense to you.

As chosen by Juneau cruise line passengers. Highlights:

  • Guaranteed whale watching
  • Rainforest trail hike
  • Mendenhall Glacier views
  • Custom safari vessels
