Can anyone suggest some could photography excursions for Sitka, Ketchikan, and Juneau?

Juneau:

  • Mendenhall glacier, not far from town - that the default photo location.
  • Humpback whale watching, preferably in the evening when the light is better.

Sitka:

  • Take a boat to go otter watching - great fun and awesome photos!

Ketchikan:

  • Must see - Misty Fjords National Monument, amazing scenery! It's a long boat ride from Ketchikan, though. We missed seeing the town itself on our cruise because we went out to Misty Fjords...

There's plenty more... I would have loved to take a trip to one of the brown bear fishing spots, but we were too early in the season so the salmon weren't running yet...

Have fun!

In addition to Mendenhall be sure to take the tram up Mt Robert, then an easy hike to the top. The view is spectacular and the wild flowers just beg to be photographed. Wide angle and macro lens are a must.
