Highly recommend you do this!! Captain Harry is very knowledgable and we saw lots of whales. both orcas and humpbacks. We also got to see bubble-netting. The boat was perfect for our small groups (and it had a nice bathroom) and we were able to get close to the action. There were binoculars on the boat as well as drinks... More

Whale watching with Weather permitting was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. From long before we even got to Juneau, Captain Harry was so nice to work with. Captain Harry was knowledgeable about whales, and other wildlife, so that it made the trip so much more than simply watching for whales. We saw (and experienced) a group of... More

Our experience with Captain Harry was wonderful. This was our first time to book an excursion away from what the ship offered and it was the best thing we did! Weather Permitting Alaska was always in contact with us to keep us up to date on time and place for pickup before we arrived in port. They provided the cab... More

Captains Harry and John did a very nice job giving us a great whale-watching tour. We were fortunate to see humpbacks bubble-netting (numerous times), and then encountering a pod of Orcas. We felt very safe and well-taken-care-of. Both captains did a wonderful job of sharing their vast knowledge. I will do this trip each time I visit Juneau!

My wife and I were scheduled for a whale watching trip with Weather Permitting Alaska on the morning of June 7. When I contacted Captain Harry, he informed me that they had a mechanical problem with one of their engines and that he may have to place us with another captain. We decided to switch our visit to the Mendenhall... More

We took the whale watching tour with Captain Harry and Captain Jon, there were 8 of us and were fortunate enough to see the awesome humpbacks within 100 yards , stellar sea lions bickering over space on a buoy and beautiful eagles . This was a real highlight of our holiday, the two captains are very knowledgeable and funny. We... More

When looking into whale watching excursions for Juneau, we stumbled upon Weather Permitting. Working with Harry before we even arrived in Juneau was great! Transportation was provided from our cruise ship to their boat and back again on May 30, 2014. We had 11 of us in our group and both Captain John and Harry were very hospitable. The boat... More

If you are looking for a fantastic experience in whale watching then I suggest you look this company up and take a whale watching tour with them. I found them on the internet and Jon and Bob delivered. We saw so many humpback whales and eagles and they showed us a great time. One of the whales came so close... More

Captain Harry was just excellent! Harry has such wonderful knowledge of whales and all the local creatures. He's interesting and a great sense of humor. We had a beautiful day on the water with seeing a mother Humpback with her calf. The calf even showed off his tail! Plus other Humpbacks, Steller Sea Lions, seals, and eagles! Plus two glaciers!...

We had such a great time on this excursion. They met us at the cruise pier to take us to the boat and even arranged for an additional taxi as our group was bigger than their van. Words cannot explain the beauty we were able to experience that day! With just our family on board, it was an up close... More
