Travel through Juneau’s downtown to the Mendenhall Glacier. Stroll the many walkways or enjoy the Visitor Center, then board your motorcoach for a trip to Macaulay Salmon Hatchery. Your hatchery visit will start off with viewing the lifecycle of the salmon in action. From May through mid-June you'll be able to feed salmon fry in the hatchery waters. From late June through September different species of salmon begin returning to the hatchery facility to complete their lifecycle. The hatchery also boasts several exotic aquariums rich with Juneau area sea life and a touch tank that allows a more hands-on experience. From the hatchery your guide will drive you a short distance to the Gold Creek Salmon Bake.


At the Gold Creek Salmon Bake, wild Alaskan caught salmon is grilled over an open alderwood fire. Enjoy baked chicken, baked beans, wild-rice pilaf, a variety of fresh salads, corn bread, blueberry cake, and lemonade, coffee or tea. Beer and wine are available for an additional charge. Dine beside Salmon Creek, nestled in the lush foliage of southeast Alaska’s rainforest, under translucent domes that protect you rain or shine. Afterwards, roast marshmallows over a crackling campfire and view the beautiful Salmon Creek waterfall; remnants of the historic Wagner Mine can also be seen. Return to your ship at your leisure aboard one of the Salmon Bake shuttle buses.
