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.

EXCELLENT tour. I am 4'10" and knew the larger tours would not provide me with the ability to see over people's heads. I had no trouble seeing the sights. This cruise was the perfect size for our exclusive tour. We were able to step to the outside rear or front of the boat or be inside where it was very comfortable. The captain followed the trail of whale spouts which gave us the opportunity to see many whales. He was very knowledgeable about these beautiful creatures. I was able to capture many photos of their spouts as well as the whales.

Loved the Whale watching tour, boat held about 10 to 12 people so was easy to move around so you could get a better view of the Whales. Caption was very knowledgeable and had a marine biologist on board to answer any questions.

Captain was really great. Had a lot of knowledge of the whales we saw. Even recognized a couple of them . Had an issue with the boat we were on and another one was brought and transfer was made. I would recommend this trip and would take it again myself.

This was so very worth it ! This excursion was small enough for all of us to see the whales, without looking passed someone's head. There were only 8 of us on the boat, plus the guide and the captain, and we were right there, close to the water. Captain Brandon knew exactly where the whales were, Regina told us that they came to the area every year. The captain and the guide knew all about the whales, where to find them, what they ate, the migration patterns, and even named them. They both were pleasant, lovely people. The excursion was so very very wonderful and very worth going. We did see another whale watching boat come near us but there must have been a hundred people, all trying to see over the rail. We felt so lucky that we were in a smaller boat and so close to the whales. Absolutely amazing!

Reviewer: Kimberly Coyne
This was our favorite excursion of all them we did on our Alaska cruise! The 18 pax boat is the perfect size...not too many people and everyone had plenty of viewing space. There were areas front and aft on the boat for standing/view or you could see everything from your seat inside the vessel. There is a marine head (bathroom) onboard and light snacks and water/soda are provided. The naturalist onboard and captain were fantastic at providing information about the area and wildlife. The captain found a pod of Orca's that actually came right up to the boat and swam under us...truly amazing experience and would highly recommend for anyone in Juneau.
