Your boat for this amazing tour is a safe, Coast Guard inspected 26-foot Glacier Bay Catamaran. This twin engine vessel was constructed specifically for a smooth ride in most any seas getting you to the action fast! She has a warm, comfortable cabin with large windows to maximize wildlife viewing from indoors, as well as a spacious deck for the open-air experience.

The captain of this vessel is a USCG licensed licensed captain with many years of experience studying the habits of the amazing animals in our area, giving each guest a once in a lifetime marine adventure. He also has a underwater hydrophone on board so you can hear the whales sing!

This two-hour tour will take a maximum of six guests at a time to some of the most breath taking scenery and animal habitat in the world. Weather and sea conditions that day will determine the itinerary for that day. Certainly the main focus will be on whales, but the captain will also try to tweak the tour based on your personal preferences and what you want to see most. Whether it is whales feasting on herring, otters lounging in the kelp, barking sea lions, or possibly even a bear on the beach, this is the tour for you!

Please note: A minimum of 2 guests are required to book this tour. The maximum is 6 guests per departure so book early to avoid disappointment.

We had the great luck of coming across a whole pod of Humpbacks that were feeding on herring near an island and got to sit and watch about 20 of them coming up and going down as they fed for about 1 hour. Our captain was a very pleasant and nice fellow with years of experience. This excursion was cheaper and at least for us, way better than the Cruiseline excursion.

Hands down my favorite excursion. Highly, HIGHLY recommend this whale watching excursion. Our host Sonny was the most enjoyable, knowledable guide! You absolutely WILL see whales, eagles and otters as he knows where to take you in his very comfortable boat. There’s only six people in this tour and you don’t need to put on rain gear. Very comfortable. Sonny took us right out into the middle of a group of whales and maneuvered around to get us as close as possible. Forget your binoculars.... you don’t need them! Thank you Sonny for a whale watching memory of a lifetime!!!
