Begin this historical Gold Panning & Salmon Bake experience with pick up from downtown Juneau (right by your cruise docks) and a narrated tour through the area on your way to “Last Chance Basin.” Here you will see prospectors in traditional attire, and will learn just how gold panning is done from your personal prospector/guide. The banks of Gold Creek make for a serene Alaskan setting while you search the stream for your chance to strike gold. And when you do come across some, you get to keep everything you find! So get searching.
After you’ve reached your fill of gold panning, it’s time to fill your bellies at the Gold Creek Salmon bake, one of the longest-running and most famous excursions in Juneau! This all you can eat experience has been serving up delicious dinners for 38 years, in a truly unique rainforest environment under heated domes. Roast marshmallows on the campfire, take a walk around Gold Creek, or simply take a seat while enjoying live fold music. And when you’re ready to head back to your cruise ships, just hop on the next shuttle, as this unique excursion in Juneau has flexible departures! The Gold Panning & Salmon Bake is an experience for all ages and abilities to enjoy, and a true Alaskan experience you will remember for years to come.
