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

Dina, We have read your review and we clearly see that you didn't have the experience we strive for in an over-all package. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your whale watching tour. We would like to begin by confirming that after some email correspondence with your travel agent back in May regarding available flight times for that day, I... 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

Our whale watching tour with Alaska Galore Tours was fantastic! Captain Scott and Andi showed my family of ten, including three generations, a group of humpback whales bubble net feeding and also killer whales, sea lions, sea otters and bald head eagles. They were very informative about everything we saw and Captain Scott dropped a microphone into the water so... More

We recently returned from our cruise to Alaska. The Whale Watching Tour with Alaska Galore Tours was by far the best part of out trip and worth every penny we paid! Our captain, Monroe and first mate, Buddy were awesome guides and contributed to making our tour an unforgettable experience. Of course, they have no control over the whales, but... More

We planned our trip-of-a-lifetime with a cruise and land tour of Alaska. My family insisted that there be a whale watching tour, also. So, I checked out several different companies and finally called Mendy at Alaska Galore Tours. She won me over with her pleasant personality and her fast follow up of sending me the information I desired. When we... More

There is a difference between fishing and catching fish. The same could be said in this case as well. There is whale watching and then there is whale seeing. Five of my family, me included, set sail with Captain Scott Monroe on May 27th for what would be a hugely rewarding experience thanks to the good captain and the onboard... More

Overall, it's a good excursion but you have to manage your expectations. After watching YouTube videos of whales swimming directly under the boat, I think we were hoping for the same. Scott and Luke, the captain and first mate, were very engaging and doing their best to put us close to whales. In the end we got as close as... More
