HAL Excursion Vendors

Does anyone have a list of the vendors that HAL uses for excursions? I would prefer to book direct.

I don't know if you can figure out the vendors from this link:

I'm not sure they're allowed to do that, since then HAL doesn't get its cut. I guess it doesn't hurt to ask.

But you could book with similar tours.

When I was planning my cruise excursions in 2016 with HAL, i googled the description of the excursion in the HAL brochure and you can generally work out who they are, but in general there was little price difference for booking the same tour direct. I found it better to book an alternative but similar tour. If you haven't been on TA sister site Cruise Critic, I highly recommend it for suggestions of alternative tours in the various ports

Which tours are you looking at specifically? There are a free tours that are only bookable through the ship. The whale watching in Juneau is operated by Allen Marine. You can book other companies on your own. The glacier tour over near Haines is only available through the ship I believe.
