2019/09/18 Alaska Day 15: Juneau
π 2019-09-18 01:01 in Ak2019, Trips

Our next port was Juneau. It wasn't a very long time, the boat was leaving by 16:30, so we had to rush somewhat and skip the glacier, which wasn't a huge deal given that we had seen a bunch by now, and the weather sucked anyway.
We started with a whale watching tour, which was ok, but not great. We saw a few whales and a couple of tails:





Here is a quick video:

Juneau has more bald eagles than residents:



Despite the worsening weather, we took the tram next. The few was so-so, especially since we couldn't see the horizon:

They had some nice totems on the nature trail:






Next, was the Alaska State Museum, which deserved a good 2H, more if you have time:

Last, was the Sealaska Heritage Institute, worth 30 to 60mn depending on how much time you have:





Then a few shops and back on the boat before it left without us:
