Booked online because we wanted a smaller, more intimate tour plus my daughter REALLY wanted to see sea otters. Herm, our captain, did not disappoint. Took us right to the whales and explained what we were seeing. Even had a whale come right up to the boat -- too cool! My daughter got to see her beloved sea otters --... More

We were on the Oceana Regatta for 10 days and this was the highlight tour for us. We booked this privately and they were very helpful with information before we booked as my husband with Parkinsens was in a mobile wheel chair -you have to be mobile and able to walk and step into the boat ..and get down a...

We booked with Hoonah Travel Adventures because we wanted a smaller boat whale watching trip, not the big boat that our cruise shore excursion option used. The guides were friendly and helpful. We managed to see a lot of humpbacks who came and swam close to the boat. We also saw lots of sea otters, and stellar sea lions.

We visited Hoona in the Oceania regatta,a great ship with excellent service. We had the Bears and whale tour. We were not very lucky on the bear tour although our guide was very good and made up for the lack of bears with great information and a beautiful nature walk Now the whale boat tour was a once in a...

We booked with this company because we were a group of 15 family members who wanted to do whale watching together, and this was one of the companies who ran a small boat that would be big enough for our group. The company was very easy to deal with for answering questions and making reservations. The captain/guide was really nice... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska! Captain Paul and James were great! This was a smaller boat which was perfect because it got us up close to orcas and humpback whales- I think there were 11 guests on the boat. We saw lots of humpback whales right up close to the boat and several breaches!... More

Our whale watching tour with Captain Paul was absolutely perfect. With being a small group we had freedom to move around the vessel without feeling crammed which allowed up great views from every angle possible. Our group was lucky enough to not only spot Humpback whales but Orca's too! The tour picked up and returned us with plenty of time... More

My family, all 11 of us (age 5-75), had a great experience on our whale watch. We were able to watch four humpback whales for about 30 minutes as they fed and then played with each other. They approached the boat and swam around us for about 10 minutes to the delight of our grandchildren! We literally could have reached... More
