Exclusive Juneau Whale Watching Tour

On this Exclusive Whale Watching Cruise, you'll enjoy more time on the water watching these majestic creatures with a total of 3 hours of water time all while being able to escape the crowds on a boat that holds a maximum of 18 passengers. This tour also includes a complimentary photo-stop at a Mendenhall Glacier scenic viewpoint, where you will have the opportunity to take in the view of a lifetime!

With this Juneau shore excursion, you'll have the opportunity to view magnificent marine mammals in the most beautiful part of the country with a professional crew, onboard a custom-built whale watching boat. Your vessel features outdoor viewing areas, heated cabin, comfortable seating, bathroom and is considered one of the safest boats in the industry.

While our guests absorb the spectacular atmosphere of whales surfacing, with the scenic background of Southeast Alaska, we will be there to assist with the interpretation with our local naturalist and also offer snacks and beverages. We are committed to making memorable experiences. We take a lot of pride in being able to cater to the smaller group sizes of 18 and under to make your Juneau whale watching tour more personable.

In addition to viewing whales on this Juneau cruise excursion, we always find a variety of other animals that can include seals, sea lions, bald eagles, porpoise, deer, and even an occasional bear. Our experienced captains know these waters well, and have had a 100% viewing success rate over the past 12 years. We guarantee that you will see at least a whale or an orca during the Alaska whale watching excursion or your money will be completely refunded. So, when you travel to Juneau, get the personalized custom tour that you deserve.

Please Note: The glacier photo-stop is weather-dependent.

This whale excursion was the best. The two guys on the boat were awesome and very knowledgeable. I wish I could remember their names. They made the rough boat ride very enjoyable..

Not having done this before, can't really be sure if this was the best it could have been. We did see whales, but wished we had seen more. We were on a small boat. It would have held 12 passengers but there were only eight of us. The driver and host were friendly and seemed to know their stuff. We saw eagles flying and sea lions perched on a buoy. All in all we were satisfied with our excursion.

5 StarsAwesome experience overall. July 06, 2019

Reviewer: Eric Su
The captain was very friendly and helpful. He answered all of our questions and had extensive knowledge of the local animals and topography, especially the whales and orcas that pass through and the glaciers nearby. I would highly recommend booking this trip. It’s definitely worth it, and even more so if you’re lucky enough to see whales breaching right next to your boat. It really is a sight to behold.

In Juneau we went on an excursion to see the whales. That tour I’ll give 5 stars, they were friendly and very professional, they were patient and their way of treating people left us more than satisfied. That excursion I will give my best reviews

I had been on this tour with my family almost five years ago and had such a great time decided to take my In-Laws there too. They stepped it up even more this time. We were able to see a couple different humpback whales, a young humpback jumping from the water, multiple dives and even a pod of Orcas. The drivers know the area very well and some follow these whales all year long and can tell you so much about their lives. Would definitely do it again.
