Capt. Harry was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and created a memorable life event for my wife and me. The experience to get close and see the humpback whales bubble feeding far exceeded our expectation. Capt. Harry's vessel was ideal for getting close and quickly navigating to where the whale pods are moving. Below is a link to Humpback whale photos taken... More

We were on the same Whale Watching Tour as Sherriln (review right before mine) who provided a great review of our tour. Please take a look at her review as we share the same sentiment, but I'm going to add a bit more of my own :) Captain Harry and Wes both have a passion for whale watching and nature.... More

We just finished our whale watch with Captains Harry and Wes less than an hour ago. Within fifteen minutes of leaving the dock, we witnessed four humpback whales bubble net feeding. One of the whales was a calf who was being instructed by her mother and the two other whales in the feeding pod. We had over two hours of... More

We had an amazing time on the boat with Capt. Harry! Lucky for us, my husband and I, there was supposed to be another group of people on the boat with us, but they were sick and had to skip the trip (sorry guys!) So we had the trip to ourselves! We were able to see a mama humpback with... More

Took advantage of a local discount, and went whale-watching with Weather Permitting on a sunny August day. And, what a day it was! Almost immediately encountered a group of 15+ bubble-net feeding humpback whales. Massive heads would erupt from the water every 6-7 minutes, with thrashing 20' long pectoral fins. One central female was absolutely huge! One bubble-net emerged from... More

We know it's hit or miss when it comes to whale watching, but boy did we hit it! We went on a whale watching cruise mid July and saw 25+ bubble netting feedings from near and far. We literally sat, waited five minutes, watched for seagulls, experienced bubble netting - over and over and over again. Captain Harry knew just... More

This was a wonderful experience. Lots of whales and very knowledgeable crew. The small boat made it very personalized and great for viewing. I highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I had a free morning in Juneau. Capt Harry changed his plans and took us out. We saw tons of humpbacks and even a Minke! We saw bubble net feeding and whales breaching right next to the boat. The small passenger size made this a very personal experience. The crew was knowledgeable and shared some of the... More

Lots of whales were seen and the boat was stable, as promised. There was not enough seating for all the customers, and since it rained the entire trip everyone stayed inside in a small area for most of the trip. Captain Jon was great as a driver and spotter. While Captain Harry started out giving us good info on whales,... More
