Whale Watching

Enjoy the perfect small-group adventure on this fun whale watching tour. Each Icy Strait whale watching excursion is limited to 18 passengers, so you can be sure you'll avoid the masses and have a personalized experience. Climb aboard and witness these majestic creatures in their pristine habitat!

This Icy Strait excursion will provide you with the opportunity to view magnificent marine mammals in the most beautiful part of the country with a professional crew, on-board a custom-built, state-of-the-art whale watching vessel. The cabin cruiser offers a soft, enjoyable ride, and is considered one of the safest boats in the industry. It includes a heated cabin and a bathroom.

While our guests absorb the spectacular atmosphere of whales surfacing, with the scenic background of Southeast Alaska, we assist with interpretation from our local naturalist and also offer light 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 16 and under to make your trip more personable.

In addition to viewing whales, we always find a variety of other animals that can include seals, sea lions, bald eagles, porpoise, and even an occasional deer or bear on the shoreline. Our experienced captains know these waters well, and have had a 100% viewing success rate over the past six years. We guarantee that you will see at least a whale or an orca or your money will be completely refunded. Get the personalized custom trip that you deserve in Icy Strait.

Reviewer: Faith
The two young men who took us were polite, informative and found the whales for us to view, take videos and pictures. It was a wonderful day to see these magnificent animals. They were connected with local fishermen who would give them the reports of where whales were. So YOU WILL SEE WHALES!

This was the best whale watching trip I have been on and I've been on 3 others. The captain was friendly and knowledgeable as was his naturalist assistant. We saw Orcas breaching so many times and so close to the ship. Greatest day I spent in Alaska.

Reviewer: Bruce
This was an excellent excursion. The boat as small enough to not be overwhelmed with lots of people. The crew worked hard to find whales, and we saw several. The crew was very friendly and informative. A great trip.

Josh and Steve took 14 Princess Cruise passengers whale watching and knew just where to look. We were so fortunate to see a mother humpback trying to teach her baby to breach! It was amazing. Both men were very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife so they were able to answer the many questions their passengers asked. Great job!!!
