Whale-Watching Cruise with Seafood Lunch or Dinner atop Mt Roberts
Combine whale watching with a tram and salmon lunch or dinner on this exciting Juneau tour! Choose from a selection of tour times, and start with a whale-watching cruise from Auke Bay into the Inside Passage for a chance to see humpback whales in the wild, as well as other native marine life like sea lions, seals and orcas. Then take the scenic aerial tram up Mt Roberts to Timberline Bar & Grill, where you’ll enjoy a lunch or dinner of grilled salmon. While you eat, admire spectacular views of Juneau, and then make your own way back down the tram whenever you wish.

Meet your tour guide at the Mt Roberts aerial tram station in downtown Juneau to begin your whale-watching tour. Board a comfortable coach for the 20-minute drive north to Auke Bay Harbor, where you’ll then board a custom-designed whale-watching boat and head out into Auke Bay.

As you cruise through the Inside Passage, keep your eyes open for local wildlife such as seals, sea lions, bald eagles, black bears, orcas and, of course, humpback whales, the star attraction. When a humpback is spotted, your captain will slow down so you can gather on the spacious viewing deck with your camera ready. The heated and enclosed indoor cabin also provides an unrestricted view of the water.

When your cruise returns to the harbor, head back to Juneau by coach and board the Mt Roberts aerial tram, which whisks you 1,800 feet (550 meters) up Mt Roberts to Timberline Bar & Grill. Sit down to a satisfying meal of coho salmon grilled to perfection and served with seasonal vegetables, accompanied by views of Juneau and its surrounding landscape of mountains and the Gastineau Channel.

The tour ends here, where you can stay on Mt Roberts to explore the hiking trails at leisure, or just soak up more of the views. Take the tram back down on your own when you’re ready.
