Whale Watch and Flightseeing
You will drive from downtown Juneau to the airport which is approximately 15 minutes away. Here, you will board your fixed-wing aircraft for a 40 minute stunning flight-seeing tour over the adjacent Juneau Icefield. Depending on the weather that day, your pilot will set a course for the most scenic course. Almost all routes include the most famous glacier in the area, the mighty Mendenhall. You will have many aerial views and you may even spot a few mountain goats!
Depending on that day's schedule and weather, either before or after the flight-seeing, you will also visit Auke Bay, where you will embark on our signature 2.5 hour whale watch and nature cruise. The tour includes bottled water and light snacks.
All boats have viewing from inside and out, heated cabins and restroom. The largest boat holds up to 16 guests so everyone has room to move around.
PLEASE NOTE: A minimum of four guests is required for tour to operate. This tour is weather dependent. Pilot will have the final say in itinerary based on weather conditions that day. Guests will be updated at the meeting point the day of the tour.
We were picked up on time and taken to the boat. The boat was adequate for the situation. The captain (John) and his crew (Dave) were wonderful. There was no rush. We were out to spot some whales and we did just that. The captain and crew were obviously experienced at finding whales. The length of time we were out on the water was perfect. The price for the trip was very reasonable.
The whale watching was great. They gave great explanations on what to look for and what was happening. The flight seeing was AWESOME. We could not believe the awe inspiring view. We covered a lot I ground and considered this once in a lifetime experience. We would do it again without question.
