If you are arriving on a cruise ship...
We recommend that you use the cruise line web links below to reserve our shore excursions directly with your cruise line. A direct cruise line shore excursion reservation insures your satisfaction and guarantees your seat on tour for your ship's arrival and depature, even if the ship is late to port. Prices may vary slightly, but all are very close to our online advertised shore excursion retail price. Expert advice is offered on board with your cruise line's Shore Excursions staff. Lastly, if for some unforeseen reason we are late getting you to the ship, your cruise line will cover the expense of getting you to the next port of call.
Shore Excursions can be viewed by clicking one of the Shore Excursions links on the menu bar above. Please book your excursion through your cruiseline by following the links posted here: Cruise Line Links
If you are traveling independently...
And you would like to reserve one of our Private Custom Trips, or if you are interested in booking a Shore Excursion, you may do so here. Please note that as an independent traveler, prebooking a Shore Excursion through Gastineau Guiding can only be done on a stand-by basis (space on Shore Excursions may only be available if the scheduled cruise line releases it the day prior to the tour). If you have a flexible schedule and are interested in at least a couple of our tour options, this may work for you. Gastineau Guiding will confirm reservations upon payment with an e-mail message, if an email address is provided. If you have specific questions we are glad to help, please completely fill out the Reservation Request Form below.
If you would like to inquire about a Private Custom Trip...
We specialize in arranging custom tours for groups visiting Juneau. We have provided tours and experiences for families, reunions, business travel groups, photographers and researchers, to name a few.
Custom trip options are exclusive and created to allow your group to do what they want, when they want. Private shuttles, unique sightseeing venues, up-close wildlife viewing or multi-sport activities are some options. You can even charter one of our premire exploration vessels to take you out to the remote Point Retreat Lighthouse on Admiralty Island National Monument, known as the "fortress of bears", for an unforgettable day trip.
Snacks, picnic lunches and catered meals are available upon request. You can be sure that your experience will be the very best that Juneau has to offer.
