A whale watching tour was included in our shore excursion we purchased from our cruise. The boat was well maintained. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Binoculars are provided. Our Captain, Josh, was excellent. We were on our way out to see whales, and someone saw one before we arrived at our destination. Josh stopped the boat, turned it around, and... More

We were in Juneau at the beginning of August and did a tour with this company. They did an amazing job! Saw lots of whales including many whale breaches as well as numerous episodes of bubble feeding. It was truly amazing. The captain and crew are very aware of the well-being of the whales. When in close proximity, they cut... More

Not only do you see whales, steller sea lions and other wildlife but also the scenery is amazing. The captain knows exactly where to go and is very respectful of the wildlife and the naturalist (can't remember his name but he was British) was extremely knowledgable and you can ask him as many questions as you like. The boat is... More

The boat was clean and comfortable and not overcrowded. We took off and Justin, our naturalist, started talking to us about the area and what to watch for. We were beyond lucky, which even surprised Justin, to see humpbacks bubble net feeding FIVE times and to travel alongside two orcas. The captain knew exactly how to maneuver the boat so... More

Absolutely a must do tour for Juneau! We saw lots of seals and other wild life and the very best part was seeing whales bubble net fishing very close to the boat not once but many times thanks to our experienced captain! Our naturalist on board was great. The whole crew and captain were really great. The boat we were... More

I recently returned from a cruise in Alaska where I was lucky enough to go Whale Watching and see humpback whales bubble-net feeding!! Geoff our naturalist was extremely excited as this was the first time this season he had seen this. The boat (the St. Phillip) was very clean and had good facilities on board. Geoff was very knowledgeable about... More

July 25,2014, Nice clean boat, lots of large windows, and outdoor areas for viewing. Although never any guarantees you'll see wildlife, we were fortunate to see a pod of Orcas, and a group of 12 humpback whales (they were bubble net feeding) , which was totally amazing. Lots of birds, and some awesome Seals (playing on a buoy, knocking each... More

Whale watching with Allen Marine was a highpoint of our cruise to Alaska. We saw TONS of whales and were lucky enough to see the humpback whales "bubble netting" (i.e. schooling up the fish in bubble nets and rising out of the water to gobble them up) which is not a common sight. The guides were very knowledgeable about the... More

This is my third time on an Allen Marine vessel for wildlife viewing. I have done the sea otter tour and the whales twice. You will see whales. In 2009 we were treated to a bubble net feeding frenzy as well as a young humpback whale breaching and playing. This time we saw several whales but only spouts and flukes,... More
