The company was very professional and our captain and naturalist were great. The boat was enclosed with comfortable seats which made the experience more enjoyable. We saw several whales and had an enjoyable time. We would use Orca again.

We booked this tour privately as our NCL cruise ship docked in Juneau, and based on a recommendation we pre-booked this tour. It is definitely worth booking to go on board with Captain Larry. The head office is less than 5 minutes from the central...More

We saw so so so many whales. Nice friendly staff, not crowded at all, and there was a bathroom on the boat. They knew exactly where to go and we're just as excited as we were to see the whales. Best experience!
