Have taken whale watch tours with Allen Marine in the past and loved them. This year was no exception. This time we were on the Aquilina with Captain Brian at the wheel. Emily our naturalist was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She visited with everyone in our group and so was helpful., answering all our questions. The rest of our crew was... More

We were picked up from our Holland America cruise ship, Ms. Zuiderdam, by Allen Tours and taken into Tracy Arm by smaller boat. While it was rainy and foggy that morning, we still had an excellent tour. We were able to get up close to the 2 main glaciers. The boat captain didn't hurry and gave plenty of opportunity to...

Our bus driver, our naturalist and all members of Allen Marine Tours' crew were well informed, professional, courteous, and incredibly hospitable. We enjoyed a large number of humpback sightings, a harbor seal sighting, and observed an island thick with sea lions. The scenery is amazing and an on board map helps passengers understand their location. Complimentary warm beverages, smoked salmon... More

I have been on several whale watch trips, mostly in Hawaii, but this was the best. It was a large stable boat and very comfortable, but a little more distant from smaller boats. However, we saw plenty of humpbacks including one whale breaching several times. We also saw orcas, seals, and plenty of bald eagles. They took us to lunch... More

We visited the sawyer glaciers and was so glad to see the biggest glacier calving almost 80% of the face of the south sawyer glacier came out. The ice bergs were in rich blue one of its kind. The guides were full of energy and very cheerful and seemed to enjoy what they are doing. They told us that the... More

Amazing time! We were fortunate enough to come upon a whale who was having a whale of a time (sorry, had to say it) playing out at sea. It breached a good dozen times right in front of our boat, and spent a good amount of time slapping its fins on the water and showing off its tail for us.... More

Of all the nautical wildlife trips I've been on, I saw the most plentiful amount of wildlife on this trip w/ Allen Marine. We saw a pair of humpbacks about 10 minutes after leaving the pier. You can't ask for more than that! All said and done, about 20 humpbacks, hundreds of sea lions and harbor seals, and many many... More

We booked this cruise through our NCL excursions choices. Our whale watching cruise was excellent! The captain of our whale watching boat even took us out to Little Island so we could see some seals that only visit the area once a year after mating season. The island was covered with huge, golden furred, male seals. It was an incredible... More
