Whale watching wildlife viewing at it's finest! Come aboard with us as we search the pristine waters of Juneau, Alaska for majestic Humpback Whales and other water wildlife we may find along the way. Our expert captains and naturalists are so familiar with these amazing creatures that we can actually guarantee you will see whales in their natural habitat from a safe distance. Our state of the art boats are equipped with restrooms and heated cabins to make this journey extra comfortable. Our fleet of fast jet boats all have plenty of outdoor deck space so you can choose to watch the wildlife in the open air or from the comfort of the cabin. This is an Alaskan adventure you won't want to miss!
What to Expect
Our tour representatives will meet you at the main cruise ship terminal and check you in for the excursion. You will board a transport bus with a guide that will bring you to the local boat harbor on a scenic drive through the coastal city of Juneau. You will have views of mountains, ocean, and the famous Mendenhall Glacier along the way. Once you arrive at the harbor you will be met by our captain and crew who will walk you past the fishing fleet to board one of our state of the art boats built for wildlife viewing. The boats are equipped with restrooms, heated cabins, large windows, comfortable seats, and outdoor decks for viewing. We will then begin a 2 hour journey in search of Humpback Whales and other water wildlife native to the area. You can sit back and relax while taking in the beautiful scenery on the boat ride or assist us in searching for signs of whales including water spouts, tail dives, and whales jumping out of the water. No trip is the same as mother nature decides what to provide for each tour. Your naturalist and crew will interpret what you are seeing and explain the behaviors of the massive and beautiful creatures. At the end of the trip the captain will make an announcement and we will return back to the harbor. Feel free to enjoy a complimentary snack and beverage as you soak up your remaining time on the water. Your driver will meet you at the harbor and bring you back through town to the main cruise ship terminal in downtown Juneau where the excursion started.

Whale watching with Captain Rich and Brandi

We had such an amazing time on this trip in July. Saw orcas and humpbacks! Rich and Brandi are knowledgeable and professional and the smallish boat was fast and so much fun! Would book them again in a heart beat.
