These folks were incredible. From the first contact with them to book our tickets they were personable, friendly, knowledgeable, and generous. It feels like cheating to write about our experience on the cruise because I feel like we got lucky with all the things we saw, so I won't focus on that suffice to say we saw bears, eagles, seals,...

This trip and this company are excellent. You really get up close and personal with glaciers, fjords, waterfalls and sea mammals (and a bear!). As everyone says the scenery is spectacular, but seeing things from a small boat that can get in close really enhances the experience. The captain and crew were great and the food was good. If you...

I took the 10hr Tracy Arm fjord cruise in late August. The scenery among the fjords was spectacular-the beauty is unsurpassed. We saw seal pups lounging on iceburgs, waterfalls, glaciers calving. On the return to Juneau we witnessed some of the best whale watching I have EVER seen. Whales were breaching all around our boat-some as close as 30ft away.... More

The trip itself was magnificent - I'd say a must-to-come for everyone who visit Juneau. The service & hospitality was beyond expectation. You guys were amazing and made this trip so memorable. Close-up views of waterfalls, whales, and glaciers. A definitely quality cruise to take!

We took the 10-hour trip aboard "Adventure Bound." The scenery was superlative, the crew prepared a tasty sandwich lunch, and the skipper was adept at locating and getting us close to humpback wales. We spent a considerable amount of time relatively close to the Sawyer Glacier and got some amazing videos of huge blocks of ice calving. Don't visit Juneau... More

If you want to take the time to see nature up close at its best and not just check something off your list as having been there - done that - then this is the trip for you. Pull up to a waterfall and spend 10 minutes listening to and beholding its beauty. Embrace the beauty and majesty of the... More

This trip was clearly a highlight to our visit! There was plenty of room both on board and on deck. Our Captain Steve Weber did an outstanding job of bringing us as close as possible to all the scenic wonders and gave us far more time in each area than any of the other tour boats I observed.

We found the Captain Cook as described in our instructions. We were a little surprised to find the boat as full as it was with all seats taken and a hardy family of four sitting under covers on the fore-deck area. However the group soon gelled and conversation flowed easily as we set off into open water. We were free... More

It’s a long day but well worth doing. We saw about a dozen whales including one group of four which was awesome, numerous seals, a large iceberg as well as many smaller ones. While at the base at the glacier we witnessed a very large chunk calving off and crashing into the water as well as a large piece breaking... More
