I had booked a small boat tour to help celebrate my mom's 70th birthday while on a cruise. There were 4 in our group plus two others we met on the pier. We were picked up at the ship pier and driven to the marina. Unfortunately, our boat (and our driver) was nowhere to be found. Staff from the company... More

My wife and I went on a cruise to Alaska this summer. One event almost ruined the experience, and I wanted to make people aware so it so it won't possible happen to them. My wife wanted to go on a Whale Watch Cruise on one of our stops in Alaska. Our travel agent recommended a tour company for us... More

My husband and I went on a whale watching trip and absolutely loved it! It was a rainy day and all of our other tours cancelled, but, thankfully Alaska galore did not. We had a fun local shuttle driver to and from the hotel, who told us great stories about the history of the area and his experiences growing up... More

My wife and I were treated to a fabulous afternoon with the whales, with just 12 customers, our captain and a naturalist on board. The skill of our captain was apparent -- she knew the whales personally, having grown up on Shelter Island, adjacent to the whales' playground. I would highly recommend Alaska Galore Tours when your cruise takes you... More

Intimate group, great guides, saw humpbacks and orcas, with snacks to boot! Our family of five (kids 10, 15 & 18) loved it and rated this our favourite cruise excursion even though the others were also excellent.

My 3 daughters, sister-in-law and my mom booked a tour with Alaska Galore Tours. Capt Alex and Sarah assured that my "senior" mom got on the boat safely. They were so sweet and attentive and funny and informative, that by the end of our tour, they felt like our family! They even had the boat calling my mom by her... More

13 adults and children went on a morning whale watch. We had great ground transportation to the docks. Our whale watch was phenomenal seeing many whales, including several breaching ones, sea lions, eagles and many other wildlife. We booked a private tour since there was 13 of us. We were then transported to Mendenhall Glacier where we spent a few... More

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
