|Dipac Salmon Hatchery– This is optional, but included in your city tour if choose to do it. The hatchery raises just over 130 million chum, king and coho salmon annually. You’ll learn about what it takes to raise salmon, the importance of the Alaska hatchery system, and the near shore marine environment that salmon share with other marine life. From mid June through October, you can watch adult salmon swim up a 450 foot fish ladder and gather into holding ponds until the fish are ready to reproduce. View baby salmon year round from a sky bridge and meet over 150 local marine species in the various aquariums and touch tanks.|
| Sea Walk to Life Size Whale Sculpture- Take a stroll to enjoy Juneau’s beautiful waterfront and the new Sea Walk that takes you alongside the Gastineau Channel. Many restaurants, shops, gardens and art line the boardwalk along the waterfront. The walk ends at a life size humpback whale sculpture. A great photo opportunity!
