We are wanting to take the Marine Highway ferry to Bellingham. Just not sure where to get on to make the best use of our time and the scenery. We fly into Juneau from Anchorage on August 19th and want to catch the ferry on August 23rd. We don't know where we should join the Ferry - Juneau, Sitka or another spot. We have heard Sitka is not to be missed but do we spend a day there before getting the ferry or just get the ferry from Juneau and enjoy the sights as we pass by?
Any pointers on the best use of our time 19 to 22 August in the Juneau area. We are in our late 60's reasonably fit but don't hike. We will have been in Alaska for two weeks touring RV style we hope out of Anchorage. Thinking of doing a train tour to Skagway / Haines - is that a good idea. Many thanks for any hints, suggestions etc.
