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.

Having a marine biologist on board was an excellent addition to our experience. Didn’t get to see too many whales

Within minutes after launching, we came across a pod of Orcas and were able to witness them up close. We also saw humpback whales and sea otters. The crew was very friendly and the boat was excellent for what we were doing. I would highly recommend it!

The Captain and Marine Biologist on board were very entertaining and informative. We saw several humpback whales including a mom and her calf as well as bald eagles. We enjoyed the small group experience in a smaller boat. Plenty of opportunities to speak to both crew members. Would highly recommend.
