This is our no frills experience offering direct transpiration (14 miles) from downtown Juneau to the Mendenhall Glacier. Buses leave the main cruise ship terminal and glacier every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour beginning at 8:00am most days. The last bus back to downtown leaves the glacier at 6:00pm. Let our bright blue bus take you our to the "Blue Ice Cube."*Beginning and ending times may vary according to cruise ship schedule.

Nice ride through part of park. Driver was interesting and funny. I would recommend the full tour as you would have a better chance of seeing more animals. We did however, see a small grizzly.
