What a perfect boat ride and sightseeing adventure. We saw a pod of whales eating for their big trip to Maui for the Winter. Our on-board naturalist was a delight and so full of whale knowledge. Her enthusiasm was contagious and it was obvious she loved her job. The included food, provided by Abby's kitchen, was delicious! The hot cocoa... More

We booked through our cruise line Holland America. Very efficient operation. Crew very friendly and knew what they were doing and were very knowledgeable. The boat was very comfortable. It wasn't crowded in September, so there was plenty of room up top for photos when we saw the whales. We were lucky with the weather, it was a beautiful day.... More

Whale Quest & Orca Point Lodge tour was fantastic. This was a tour booked thru our NCL cruise. We saw several whales although none did a full body breach, seals and bald eagles. The scenery was spectacular. The boat was comfortable and the guide knowledgeable. The fresh-caught salmon bake at Orca Point Lodge was delicious. I can't wait to go... More

Allen Marine has comfortable tour boats. The windows are large which makes viewing the animals much easier. The outdoor deck is great for photos. I enjoyed the whole crew and tour guide. Very knowledgeable.They knew how to navigate the waters and find wildlife. We saw whales, sea lions, seals, and porpoise. The snacks weren't the greatest. I wish there were... More

This trip was amazing. We booked this excursion prior to our cruise and are so glad we did. Our naturalist was great and took the time to answer everyone's questions. We saw several humpback whales, stellar sea lions, eagles and glaciers. Tried to get good photos of the whales, but couldn't quit watching them so didn't get many photos. Memories... More

We booked this tour while on our Alaska cruise. Our tour consisted of approximately 50 people, but there was plenty of room on this three tiered boat. After about five minutes on the boat, the captain spotted a whale and slowed to a crawl so we could get plenty of pictures. This was the first sighting but not the last... More

Booked whale watching trip via cruise ship in Juneau. Journey via coach to Allen Marine harbour approx 20 mts. Amusing narration of local area by driver. Experienced skipper of boat took us direct to whale feeding grounds, then BINGO, humpback whales aplenty, on surface then diving tail up as if to impress the public. We also encountered seals and Bald... More

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...
