Fabulous Excursion

Today we took the whale watching tour with captain Alex. He was great, explaining everything about the whales, and we saw a lot of them. I strongly recommend this tour and company.

Went on tour with Alex and Sarah with a handful of strangers in June 2015. The crew was fun and knowlegable but most of all we were lucky. We saw at least 6 groups of humpbacks lining up nose to tail and then diving, surrounding schools of fish, and then erupting out of the water with their mouths open. This... More

We booked a private tour with Alaska Galore for our family of 10. We had an absolutely wonderful tour! Our captain and her assistant showed us orca's, humpbacks and seals. The stop at Mendenhall was too short (30 minutes by the time we got there) so that part was just okay. BUT, the bulk of our tour was fabulous! We... More

Captain Alex and Sarah were fun and very knowledgeable. We found a bunch of whales which is apparently unusual. They talked about the area and the whales. We also got to see sea lions. It was a small group tour, so it was very personal. Captain Alex dropped some instrument into the water and we heard the whales sing which... More

We went out on July 6th, 2015 with a group of only 15. I have to say that our Captain and her mate made out trip so much educational than one could imagine. We started seeing whales within about 20 minutes of leaving the docks and once we got out to our destinations we had the privilege of seeing the... More

We had a great time with Sarah and Captain Alex. We saw a pod of whale doing all the usual and unusual. Alex and Sarah are experienced and delightful. It was a great experience!

We had a great time with Naturalist Emily and Captain Derrick. They clearly have a great rapport, love their jobs and love sharing their Alaska with visitors. They worked really hard to find whales for us to see. We were on a later watch and the whales were moving out to more open waters for the night. We did manage... More

We booked a private whale watching tour for the 6 of us with Captain Kevin on Fisssues and really enjoyed it. Captain Kevin (and his sidekick Merrick) was very knowledgable and skilled in navigating the waters and locating the whales. We saw a number of them including a mother whale and her calf! At the end of the tour he... More

We had a great time with Derek and Alex on the Chill Cat. We were 17 family members from Miami and they were great. We saw a rare sight with them. The whales were bubble feeding and we saw it 4 times that day!! Cap'n Derek has a real good sense for this. I recommend these people for your Juneau... More
