My high school graduation class has used Allen Marine Tours for two of our reunions, which were ten years apart! Their boats are catamarans which reach very good cruising speeds; they are comfortable and there is plenty of room inside and outside to view whales and other marine life.

This tour was friendly, informative, and fun. The crew made you feel welcome and the naturalist and tribal (Tlingit) rep were very informative as they narrated what you were looking at. The captain did a good job of steering the ship for the best viewing available. Just like the first tour we took with the same company in Misty Fiords... More

My wife and I did this tour as part of our Princess cruise. We really enjoyed the food and crew but the true highlight was seeing so many whales on our cruise. The guide / naturalist worked very well together with the crew to help us see many, many whales, get up close and see them feeding. Would highly recommend... More

Our trip to Tracy Arm Fjord was fantastic. The crew was helpful and the captain got us up close to the shore on more than one occasion. The sights were breathtaking. It is a trip not to be missed if you are in this area. My one complaint regarding the Allen Marine group was that instead of giving us a... More

Book your Allen Marine tour before your Alaska visit - especially if you're on a cruise. The transfer to a small boat which will bring you into the fjords and glacial areas will be a remarkable contrast from the cruiseship. My cruisemates and I were all delighted with the three Allen Marine Tours we took. Highly recommended - great crew;... More

The marine biologist on board was wonderful. He knew where to take us to see whales, seals and beautiful scenery. Very satisfied with this excursion. Alice, our bus driver, was also wonderful. She pointed out the only eagle we saw on our entire Alaska trip.

Did whale watching as part of a combination with Mendenhall Glacier. A coach bus picked us up at our ship (Norwegian) and drove us to Auke Bay to board the sightseeing boat. We were aboard the St. Gregory with an all female crew and captain. Captain rushed out of the bay because orca whales were spotted nearby. We were able... More
