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.

5 StarsFantastic ShowSeptember 17, 2018

Reviewer: Claudine S.
Our guides were very kind and courteous from the beginning to the end. We started in one spot looking for whales and when there wasn’t much action we moved to another and got the show of a lifetime. I would definitely use this group again!

5 StarsWow..what a show we saw!September 17, 2018

Reviewer: John Frank
Started out thinking the day was going to be a washout because of very heavy fog. Captain delayed our departure by 1 1/2 hours for safety but we were finally able to set out. A little slow to start but well worth it. We saw sea lions and then the whale show started. Tail slaps and full breaching. Got some fantastic video.

5 StarsGreat ExcursionSeptember 17, 2018

Reviewer: Kathy White
This excursion was great! The boat was great for watching whales both inside and out and the captain and his son were wonderful. They were very personable and knew where to find the whales. The only negative at first was that the excursion stated there would be another max number of people and our excursion was over that but the boat was able to accompany all of us very well so that was not a problem at all.

Reviewer: Zvi Rafilovich
Excellent value for the money!!!! The Captain and the crew were very professional. They even had a sonar on board and we were able to listen to the whales!!! We were able to see the whales up close bubble-net feeding!

5 StarsUnbelievable!!!!August 06, 2018

Reviewer: Tari Furey
Our guides on the boat were fantastic. We saw sea otters and humpback whales. While the double breaching whales was not controlled by the guides, they got us as close as legally possible. But, for me, was the sonar they used so we could hear their organizing before feeding. It was unbelievable!
