Fantastic Excursion!
January 17, 2020
We loved this excursion and it was a great choice. We were with a smaller group than many other tours we saw, which was really nice. We had fantastic guides and felt like they were knowledgeable and safe. It was amazing to see the whales up close! The boat we were on was clean, and you could sit inside the enclosed area (good because we had rain) or go outside to view. There was a restroom on board as well as snacks and drinks provided. We learned a lot from the naturalist that taught us about the whales. We got some incredible photos and wouldn't hesitate again to book this excursion.

I have a group of 14 and they kept us all together and to be honest this was the best tour we have ever done. To say it was fabulous is an understatement. The guides were great answered all our questions and made sure we saw alot of whales and other animals. Could not have asked for more.

Excellent Experience
September 27, 2019
We were met at the pier and transported to the marina in a clean comfortable vehicle. The boat used was small, holding about 18 people. It was clean and comfortable with an enclosed seating area. The crew consisted of a captain and a naturalist who provided narration throughout the trip. We had excellent weather and were fortunate to see several killer whales and a number of humpback whales. Highly recommend.

Whale Watching

Both my husband and I really enjoyed our excursion of whale watching. We saw orcas in pods which apparently is rare. And many Humpbacks surfacing and flipping their tails was exciting to see! The accompanying biologist on our boat of about 20 people was able to identify which whales they were by their tail markings and tell us their names! So worthwhile to see!

Whale Watching in Juneau

My wife and I chose the Exclusive Whale Watching Cruise specifically wanting to be on a smaller boat. It was perfect. Boat could hold up to 20 people but only 10 were on our tour. Captain knew right were to go and the Naturalist was very informative. Saw plenty of whales and dozens and dozens sea lions. Bring binoculars and camera.
