Actually I would rate this experience as "good," but there's nothing in between "average" and "very good" in the rating scale... We took the small boat whale watch tour for 6 people, and the boat was definitely small. Not enough room for 6 people inside, so we tried to rotate sitting inside and standing in the stern outside. The guide... More

This excursion was all they promised. Our captain knew and respected the whales. He was able to follow a pod and we saw many tails. A whale breeched right next to us. Definitely a WOW moment! The small boat was a distinct advantage. He was able to move and turn to catch the best view. He also stayed out longer... More

We took a whale watching adventure with this company. It was our 2nd whale watching adventure in Alaska. The captain of the boat was outstanding at finding all the sea life there was to find. Jamie, our land tour guide was also very knowledgeable and friendly. She introduced us to all the native plants-both edible and non edible.

We booked this tour as we wanted the small boat/group experience and not the large boat jammed with people from the cruise ships. We were pleased with our choice as we could move more quickly and get close to the creatures we came to see.. Jamie picked us up just outside the port area at Icy Strait. She drove us... More

Loved the Captain and First Mate. Booked this separate from the Alaskan Cruse I was on. Boat was perfectly sized as opposed to the giant boats offered by the cruise excursion booking. Saw whales and the Captain was able to predict the or patterns and behaviors so we could travel along with them. Loved this local company!

He also found a brown bear; lots of sea otters; and dolphins . The whales we spotted were amazing. He maneuvered the boat close to ensure optimal whale watching ! The boat is... More

We had a great experience and had a wonderful morning whale watching. Our guides were flexible and attempted to meet our needs as a group. In addition to whales, they pointed out all the other animal life in the area and gave us great insight into the community we were visiting. This was by far, the better way to go,... More
