This is a great tour for people who want a relaxing day. Starting out at the Mendenhall Glacier and taking our time to explore this beautiful area was a great way to start our day. We viewed the glacier from afar and then took a leisurely stroll over to the water falls to get a more close up view and on the way back saw a black bear having a snooze in the bush. we headed up to the observatory and toured around there before crossing the street to watch the salmon swimming upstream. We then boarded the bus and it was off to see the Humpback whales and we saw lots of humpbacks, sea otters and even a bald eagle. Our young tour guide did an excellent job and we hope she took our advise and is heading to Hawaii in December. Great tour you wont be disappointed, we sure weren't!!
