My wife and I went on a whale watching excursion with Weather Permitting on June 25. What an adventure! We saw so many whales and the bubble net feeding they do, it was awesome. Bob and Harry were outstanding with their knowledge of the area and where to take us. Also found out Harry is quite the renaissance man based... More

We had hoped to see a whale or two on our whale watching excursion in Juneau. Boy, did we get the show every one should be able to see. We were lucky enough to see a group of whales bubble net feeding the whole time we were out there. We even stayed out a little longer just to watch them.... More

My husband and I had a wonderful morning on board with Bob and Harry. As luck would have it the weather was amazing and it was just the two of us. The whales were a little shy, especially Charlie but the sea lions made up for the whales. I cannot recommend this highly enough, it was the highlight of our... More

We had a very awesome day. With only six people on board, it was one of the most thrilling experiences I have ever had. We saw many Whales, and Sea Lions. Our crew Captain Bob and Harry were awesome. We got a late start due to the lateness of the cruise ship, but that didn't stop us from getting the... More

Our extended family of 9 had the boat/crew to ourselves. Captain Bob and First mate Harry were determined to make our trip a success. Both were extremely knowledgeable and their personal experiences in the area were fascinating. The tradition of eating the freshly baked brownies to spot the whales sure paid off. We spotted Humpback, one with a calf, Orcas,... More

This was wonderful. We saw so many whales. We were so close to them, right next to the boat swimming. Alaska is wonderful, I see why my best friend lived there such a long time.

Captain Greg's Weather Permitting Alaska whale watching tours come highly recommended. Weather Permitting's tours are offered on a small boat with a wide flat platform that is perfect for photographers. Sight lines are excellent with plenty of room to move about. A tiny platform for viewing at the stern of the boat is also accessible to guests. On the several... More

Thank you very much for your very kind words. The whales enjoyed seeing you as much as you enjoyed seeing them. In regards to full day trips we can, and often do them. We even have had week long photographic expeditions which includes kayaks so you can get those eye level shots. We also have the option of having people... More

I have to admit I am a southern belle and have to be treated with the utmost care. As soon as we boarded the uniquely designed boat with its indoor seating, I knew my husband and I were in for a treat. And, quite literally we were. Our captain's exceptional wife joined us with a tray of her locally famous... More

OMG!! The best day of my life!!! This is certainly a "MUST DO" when visiting Juneau!!! When we booked this adventure with Captain Greg he sent us a postcard that said both he and the whales would be waiting for us and he wasn't kidding!!! All members of his team including First Mate Harry and his lovely wife were more... More

We went whale watching with Captain Greg and First Mate Henry. Both men were very friendly and able to share their love & knowledge of Alaska to make a four hour trip over much too soon. The stories told were very intersting . We saw humpback whales, orcas, sea lions, sea otters & bald eagles, with the sound of wolves... More
