You will be able to see orca whales and humpback whales from your ship but to get really up close take a whale watching trip out of Juneau. It is an awesome experience! You might even be lucky enough to see the humpbacks bubble net. And the cooler the day the better since they are not as active on warm days.
You will see eagles flying around or sitting on a light pole. Just watch for them.
Add on a visit to Denali National Park before your cruise to see lots of wildlife.
