Overview Of The Port Of Juneau

About Juneau
The City and Borough of Juneau is located on the Gastineau Channel in the panhandle of the U.S. state of Alaska. It has been the capital of Alaska since 1906.

There is a visitor centre and walking trails at Mendenhall Glacier. Bears can sometimes be spotted searching for fish near the creek.

For a different view of the glacier, helicopter tours can also be arranged.

Mount Roberts Tramway takes passengers up to a station at 1,800ft high. Here there are hiking trails, gift shop and cafe.

Take a ride around Gastineau Channel on the old Juneau Steamboat.

Take a guided tour by golf cart in a rainforest setting at Glacier Gardens.

At Macaulay Salmon Hatchery, learn about the life of a salmon. The hatchery is also an aquarium which displays local marine life.

Visit Alaska State Museum with exhibits from Eskimo, Aleut and Northwest Coast Indian tribes.

South Franklin Street parallels the dock and offers shops, restaurants and bars. Follow South Franklin Street into the downtown area where more shopping can be found. Popular buys include jewellery, fur, clothing, artwork, carved ivory and jade items, which is mined in Alaska.

Menus feature local fish, especially salmon and halibut as well as fresh seafood.
Cruise Terminal
Most large ships dock along South Franklin Street, with smaller ships using the Seadrome Dock. There is also the AJ Dock at the south end of town which may be used. Occasionally ships may be required to anchor and tender passengers ashore if the port is busy. All docks are within walking distance of the centre of town.

Taxis are available at Marine Park. The tourist kiosks lined up along the cruise docks have information about shuttle bus services.
