Will we need to bring heavy coats for our upcoming cruise to the inside passage? Our ports are Juneau, Skagway & Icy Strait Point. We're leaving June 7th.

Confused as to if we should bring winter or summer clothes?? I know to bring rain gear and to dress in layers.

That's why I like going to the's easier to pack for. Now with the airlines limiting your checked luggage, it's going to be real fun packing.

We went mid June. The heaviest coat I needed, I bought in the first port. Basically a fleece lined raincoat. Most of the weather we encountered was in the 50's. But the week before they were seeing upper 70's. So I am sure you can see a wide range of temps. And yes it rains a lot. The area is considered to be rain forrest.

You shouldn't need shorts, the ship will be warm. So pack some sweaters and such and you will be fine.

We were there in mid August one year & I can't remember being cold- just cool.
This year we'll be there at the end of June & we'll again just be taking a sweat shirt, light jacket & a light rain jacket. (And of course shorts)

Was there last July and do not recall being cold the entire time. Just think "layering" and do not worry about a heavy coat.

Have a great time and let us know how you liked the cruise when you return.

You shouldn't need a heavy coat in June. Just a spring jacket that you can wear a sweater under if it is cool. EVen in early May, I found my spring raincoat with a sweater and long sleeve t-shirt was plenty warm enough. Take a mix of spring and summer clothes.
