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: Steve A
We took the whale watching trip - excellent tour! We had a small boat with just 18 passengers. My biggest surprise was that boat included not only the captain, who was great, but also a marine biologist who gave us tons of information and facts about the wildlife we were seeing! We saw numerous humpback whales, eagles, and sea otters. Towards the end of our tour, a group of killer whales made an appearance. Our captain was great at getting us into position to see the whales and enjoy the wildlife without interfering with them. A wonderful tour - would highly recommend!!

Great smaller tour in Icy Straight to see sea otters, sea lions basking on the bouy and humpbacks. The distance is hard to get great pictures so I highly suggest cameras with incredible zoom lenses...and binoculars. The captain & marine biologist onboard were extremely friendly and very engaged trying to get our experience to be the best. It'd be great to have another 2 hours on this excursion to get further out to see orcas.

Captain Dave dis a great job and we were able to get up close and personal with several Humpback whales. They put on a show for us. We also saw several bald eagles. And the ride thru the beautiful Alaskan scenery was awesome.

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!
