  1. If you want more of Alaska. A suggestion would be a day trip flight/road combo to Coldfoot. http://www.northernalaska.com/. Has a superb tour. But I never recommend the rt road trip. ๐Ÿ˜€. At the least a car offers so much more. Www.explorefairbanks.com
  2. And hundreds of Stellar Sea Lions, Iโ€™ve seen. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
  3. In Alaska, my opinion only. Itโ€™s a huge mistake to have included tours. They usually are general and basic. There is so much more. ๐Ÿ˜€
  4. I never tire of the endless beauty and changes on the Klondike Highway. What about flying?? Have you been to Haines? Fly one way, ferry the other. Rent a car drive the Haines Highway??? Murray also has a guide. ๐Ÿ˜€. I never worry about weather.
  5. I late book my Alaska trips and donโ€™t have any problems getting my tours booked. Sometimes with the rush to โ€œBook early โ€œ, Especially with first timers- the more that is read the โ€œmustโ€ evolves and changes.
  6. Yes it does have movement. Frankly. Itโ€™s an easy miss in my opinion. Over priced and not even in the Yukon. ๐Ÿ˜€. In your case Iโ€™d only consider it if driving. You stop and go ahead. Then leave when done.
  7. I have already been up to Emerald Lake 4 times this year. I also think both directions are different views and both very worthwhile. Fog isnโ€™t just in the morning. I certainly have encountered it many times in the pm. EACH trip will be unique and never repeated. The train is certainly very worthwhile with a history, scenery, engineering interest. ๐Ÿ˜€
  8. Iโ€™m currently on the the same sailing. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€. Certainly has been excellent. Whatโ€™s your experience?
  9. Frankly come in early. You do NOT want to be dosing off on the train- it is breathtaking scenery and for me I would never miss a Kenai Fjords boat tour.

    Iโ€™m currently on my 4th out of 5 Alaska cruises, so far, this year. I have run into a lot of people who arenโ€™t booking any tours or even having any idea of port highlights. Before you go down that road make certain you wonโ€™t have regrets. โ€œI wish, I should have โ€œ. expressed with the enthusiasm of returning tour participants, reports. Loads of excellent accurate information on this site.
  11. Absolutely you need a passport. I am currently in Skagway today just completed my third trip up to Emerald Lake this year. Lake Bennett run is my favorite. LOTS of bear sightings on all my trips. 3, 3 weeks ago, 5 last week and 2 today. Plus. A rare moose on the shore of Emerald Lake. Only my second time seeing a moose on the Inside Passage in over 75 cruises to Alaska ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
  12. I keep saying this same thing. I went out a week +++ ago and heading out again next week. Always excellent.
  13. Yes it is currently running.
  14. Where?????? Seattle???? Yes. Itโ€™s enough time.
  15. Just a suggestion. I just got off the Bliss yesterday. I observed a LOT of very wrong assumptions with attire. You WILL need a range. But you need more than t shirts and sandals. And leave the winter boots at home. This is a factor that can ruin a trip here. Additionally. I saw a lot of wildlife so be certain to bring binoculars. Most people did not. Iโ€™m jumping on the Jewel today and staying on for extra trips. Alaska is in over supply with huge price dumps. Perhaps consider taking advantage!!!!
