We had booked a different tour through Carnival Cruises, but the cruise director (John Heald) gave a presentation on excursions available and sold us on the Best of Juneau. He said it was by far the best excursion of the trip. We immediately changed our tickets and boy, am I thrilled that we did. We boarded a three level boat... More

We spent nearly 4 weeks in Alaska including a land tour to Denali NP for 3 nights, etc. The final week was a Holland America cruise from Seward to Vancouver. Our cruise consultant from Holland encouraged us to take the Allen Marine tour to Tracy Arm out of Juneau. Without a doubt, this 6 hour boat tour was the water... More

Had a very nice time on a whale watching tour booked through Holland America. We had no complaints or concerns about the service. Although we did not see whales breaching, we did see Orcas, humpbacks, and sea lions. Fun excursion for the price!

I had the pleasure of going on a Tracy Arm Tour this week and had an absolute blast! Our naturalist, Blake, did a great job teaching us about glaciers and the different features of the landscape we were seeing. He also told us a lot about the history of the area. I can't forget to mention he also makes a... More

We were hesitant about this tour due to reviews we read. First, they said the boat was overpacked. Our tour had barely anyone on (I think 3 buses, not completely full). Had plenty of room to walk around or have a seat. Our captain made sure we always had the best views of the whales. The girls were wonderful. Very... More

Great day for myself, my daughter and her friend. Nice ride, when at the glaciers the sun came out and we saw a whale on the way back. The boat was comfortable and the crew was great.

Recently had the joy of experiencing whales bubble feeding, a few Orca whales, eagles, sea lions, and beautiful scenery. Where else but in Alaska can you experience such a dream, all from a short catamoran boat trip near dock. The boat is comfortable with windows all around and adequate restroom facilities. An outdoor viewing deck for perfect viewing and a... More

My boyfriend and I did a boat trip up to Tracy Arm last week and had an absolutely amazing time! We saw humpback whales and hundreds of seals! The South Sawyer glacier calving massive chunks of ice that made waves that even rocked the boat a tad! Their provided lunch was tasty and the glacier ice margaritas were to die... More

We booked our Misty Fjords and Wilderness Explorer excursion through our cruise line and it was definitely a winner. The boat was very spacious with plenty of seats, large windows downstairs and a large open deck on top. They thought of everything and even included binoculars for our use while on board. They provided a naturalist to point out the... More

Holland America's Volendam offers Allen Marine Tours' excursion to Tracy Arm, and the glorious blue Sawyer and South Sawyer glaciers. Allen Marine Tours' spacious catamaran makes steady progress on the still waters of this area, so photography is easy. Interior seating is available on two levels, and there are three decks for outdoor viewing. The entire trip takes roughly 6... More
