I recently scored a permit to raft the Tatshenshini & Alsek Rivers in Canada and Alaska in July 2019. Scheduling looks to be working out in such a way that I'll have 3-4 days available to do some other things in the Juneau to Haines area before we hit the river for 12 days. I'm looking for ideas and suggestions on cool stuff to do in that area, both in the expensive/guided category as well as regular hiking, etc. One of the top things I'd like to do is get out on a smaller boat for some up-close whale watching and halibut fishing. I've been to Juneau once before on a cruise and on that trip we went to the Mendenhall Glacier and then we took a float plane to Taku Lodge for dinner. Both were awesome, especially the Taku. Thanks in advance!
