Whale Watching in Juneau

Your Whale Watching Cruise adventure begins with a short drive to a scenic harbor. Here, you will board a mammal-friendly jet boat equipped with water jet drives to ensure a quiet underwater operation without dangerous propellers that may frighten or harm the animals. The boats have an enclosed and heated cabin, complete with indoor plumbing. In addition, the boat only holds a maximum of 40 guests. There are large viewing windows and an outdoor viewing deck that provide an up-close and personal experience while you observe and photograph the animals in their natural surroundings.

You will be on the boat for approximately two hours on this Juneau cruise excursion, in an area that the whales frequent every summer. After the whale watching tour, your transportation will take you back to downtown Juneau.

5 StarsBeautiful day and whales, too!September 10, 2018

Reviewer: Terry McCorvie
We saw several whales during our excursion. One even surfaced within a few yards of our boat and then took a deep dive. It was an amazing sight. Crew was knowledgeable and friendly. They even served us hot beverages and a snack.

Reviewer: Janice Chapman
We did see whales! The captain was in contact with other boats so he knew where the whale action was plus pointed out other sea life in the area. The ride was a bit rough - if someone has back problems a larger boat with twin hulls might be smoother but more crowded.

We saw a few spouts, but nothing very close to us. I was sad to hear that the excursion offered by the ship went further out and saw schools of Orcas as well as Humpbacks and dolphins.

5 StarsWonderful excursionAugust 13, 2018

Reviewer: Michele
We booked this relatively close-in and found the communication and process very smooth. They met us on the docks and drove us to their very clean, modern jet boat. Captain John and Axle were great hosts. We saw LOTS of humpback whales, some sea lions and have beautiful views of the glacier. Learned a lot about the whales from Axle. We would highly recommend this tour and Dolphin Jet Boat Tours
