We booked this thru Shore Trips. The two guides on this trip were Anton and Ray, two of the most knowledgeable, and friendly fellows...and the most fun. Every question was answered, and with detailed explanations. They made sure we saw whales, constantly checking with other boats. We would book with them again in a heartbeat.

We used Alaska Galore Tours for whale watching in Juneau. We had Anies for captain and Laura for the naturalist. They were both friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to be with. Made it seem like we had been friends a long time going on a day trip. We saw whales bubble feeding several times, and had a great time. Would definitely... More

During our 2 hours on the water we saw a large group of Humpback whales bubble net feeding. It was really cool when they lowered the microphone into the... More

We booked a tour for whale watching with this company, and it was worth every dollar! Our captain was Anise (uncertain of spelling), and our naturalist was Laura, and they were fantastic--knowledgeable, friendly, and so passionate about giving us the best experience possible. Of course, one cannot control whale behavior, but we were very fortunate in that we both witnessed... More
