We are also cruising Alaska on a back to back sail and have the day in Whittier before reboarding the cruise ship to return southbound to Vancouver. After checking around and getting recommendations from others, we have booked a 26 Glacier Cruise ( which runs a high speed catamaran through the College and Harriman Fjords. It departs at 1pm and returns at 5:30pm, cost $129pp. The tour operator also offers transport to & from Anchorage (returning to Anchorage at 7:15pm) so you may be able to arrange with them transport one way from Whittier to Anchorage. They will also hold your luggage for you during the tour. I booked my reservations with them on the phone and found them to be very professional and accomodating. I'm not sure if getting into Anchorage at 7:15pm for a 10pm flight departure gives you adequate time. Hope this helps. Regards
