Most visitors to this area of Southeast Alaska won’t want to miss a visit to Auke Bay and Lake, which is an easy drive from downtown Juneau and one of the things to do on your Jeep tour that is well worth your time.

Auke Bay is not only the yachting, fishing and tour boat central for the area, it is probably the busiest port in Southeast Alaska during the summer months. To get there take Glacier Highway north out of town to the turn off that will take you right to the Auke Bay Recreational Area. Points of interest here are Point Louisa, which is a traditional fishing ground for the Native Auke/Tlingit people. Here you can spend a little time fishing, or enjoy a picnic in one of the covered areas near the beach with mesmerizing ocean views. 

There are many other exciting options for things to do on a Juneau Jeep tour, as well. The Mendenhall Glacier is a perfect opportunity for unforgettable photo ops! The Shrine of Saint Therese, Gold Creek for gold-panning, Eagle Beach and Glacier Gardens are also fun and exciting things to do on an Unplugged Adventures Jeep excursion. 

If you’re looking for a great Alaskan meal to enjoy while driving along the beautiful coastline, whether it’s convenience or that right off the boat freshness Alaskan seafood is known for, we have several recommendations for you on our website. Experience REAL Alaskan style dining!
