Although the weather was not at its best (rainy, windy, choppy seas), it brought out the whales! We saw two females, one with a calf who delighted us in breaching over and over again. We also had Dall porpoises along side our catamaran. The evening tour we took advertised appetizers - though the ship was full, there was plenty of... More

We booked their whale watching tour through our cruise ship and we had a great time. Their service and accommodations were excellent from beginning to end. Their whole crew definitely seemed well trained, especially the guide/host which showed great passion towards his job and wildlife in general. Highly recommended!

We took this tour to the Tracy Arm Fjord as an excursion from a cruise ship. They picked us up in their catamaran from the ship before it even got to Juneau. From the catamaran, we saw the Alaskan rain forest, the South Sawyer Glacier, and then we saw the Sawyer Glacier calving. It was spectacular. We were told that... More

The catamaran was very nice, clean, roomy and heated with a clean restroom.They offered free hot chocolate which was much appreciated and provided a "box" lunch. This is a family run business and you can tell they enjoy their work. Our naturalist, Riya, who is a native of Juneau, was fabulous and charming, very knowledgeable and informative during our excursion;... More

We chose Allen Marine Tours to take us whale watching & to Mendenhall Glacier. The bus transportation from the cruise ship to & from the tour boat was organized & smooth. The tour boat was very nice, clean, & roomy. It was a cool day so it was nice to have a heated inside cabin on the boat. They offered... More

We went on the Whale Watching & Wildlife Quest with Allen Marine Tours in Juneau on September 22, 2015. It was great! We must have seen 20-25 humpback whales. There were at least two pods with 6-8 whales in them. (See the Whale tail fluke slap video) We also saw bald eagles and a huge number of Steller sea lions... More

We did a Whale Watching tour with Allen Marine Tours on September 21, 2015 and it was great! The crew was informative, helpful and put us on lots of whales as well as harbor seals. Great vessel as well. Inside was roomy as well as a large outside deck. When we go back, we will do another tour with them.

Saw lots of whales when we visited Juneau on Sept. 15, 2015. We were warned that the migration of the whales was about to begin, but they were in full force with Allen Marine Tours. We were able to see well over a dozen whales and in one instance saw 3 whales feeding on top of the water and would... More

Took this tour last summer. A bit rainy, but worth it to see the whales! The crew on the boat were great. Went back up again this summer and had a great time.

Our whale watching tour was part of a "Best of Juneau" package excursion that included a morning visit to Mendenhall Glacier followed by this tour. After boarding the boats we made our way to the Orca Point Lodge for a group salmon bake lunch. The attractive and well maintained lodge is strategically located in a very scenic setting and was...
