Enjoy the perfect small-group adventure on this fun whale watching tour. Each Icy Strait whale watching excursion is limited to 16 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: Valerie
The Crew were so great! We got to see Orca's and Humpback whales. The great thing about this was it was a small group of people so we were not fighting to see anything. I would do this excursion again in a heartbeat.

5 StarsAmazing whale watching!July 19, 2017

Reviewer: Heather
While our boat hand was not that much of a tour guide (he was kind and helpful but a high school kid who was new to the role), the whale watching was unbelievable. Our captain clearly new how to find the right spots and what a sight to see! The orca pod and sea lions were also a big hit. Icy Strait is the place to see whales - much better viewing than Juneau.

Reviewer: Gerry Sherman
We cruise a lot but this was our first experience using an excursion that was not offered through the cruise line. It was excellent! Excellent, comfortable whale watching boat, extremely knowledgeable guide. We saw lots of whales. We would recommend this excursion to everyone.
