I live in a place that has whale watching and in fact whales can be seen at times from the coastline a few miles away, so giving this company five stars is meaningful. The captain and crew answered all our questions and did their best to give us a great view of a pod of whales bubble netting. It was... More

We had a wonderful whale watching trip with Captain Monroe. It was a small boat so it did not feel like one of those huge boats that seem to chase the whales. Captain Monroe was patient and respectful of the whales. We watched one whale doing what he called, "logging" or sleeping, and then spotted 8 more whales over the... More

Our group (six) had a wonderful experience with Alaska Galore Tours. The whale tour was especially entertaining and we saw five or six Humpbacks plus two logging (sleeping). The boat operator (Munroe) was knowledgeable, funny and very accommodating. His expertise enabled us to get great photo's. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

We were on an Alaskan cruise and, though we live on one of BC's Gulf Islands and often see Orcas on our ferry trips, we chose this as one of our excursions. It totally exceeded our expectations! There were only 5 of us a small boat. Captain Munroe was both knowledgeable and respectful of the humpback whales. By being patient,... More

My family of four agreed that this was our favorite part of our Alaska Cruise! The process was smooth from the beginning, when booking our tour via email, all the way until the end! We had no trouble finding Alaska Galore from our cruise ship and we were dropped off at Mendenhall Glacier afterwards! The bus ride to Auke Bay... More

We are so glad to hear your experience was memorable from start to finish. It is very important to us that guests have a once in a lifetime experience on our tour. Bubble net feeding is one of the coolest things to see but the pod of orcas with a baby is just phenomenal. We are thrilled that we got... More

We were extremely excited for our whale watching and glacier flight. We booked it about 4 months before our Alaskan cruise. The day of, we located the very sweet representative Jackie that got us onto the bus and then took us to each cruise ship to pick up the additional passengers. When we arrived at the marina, we went immediately... More

Mendy was outstanding and very responsive with communications on booking a 8hour salmon/halibut fishing trip for one person. The driver TJ promptly met me at my hotel and was waiting for me at the dock at the end of my trip. TJ also provided some excellent suggestions for local hole-in-the wall dinner reservations meeting the needs of my group at... More
