I do not think I will ever get that close to a whale in its natural environment in my lifetime. It was informative, the crew provided samples of Alaskan specialty food and we happily snapped pictures of whales. So beautiful! Words cannot capture how amazing this experience was.

Our boat captain was JAMES HOOK, no kidding. That was really his name. He was fabulous and knew all the best spot to locate and watch whales. We saw humpbacks basket feeding and breaching, lots of tail fluke, and great photo and video opportunities. Orcas, sea birds, seals, and even sea otters. Our guide was amazing, but unfortunately I can't... More

We were told that we had a unusual number of humpback whales rolling and surfacing on our tour. Probably had a twenty percent calves rolling beside the cows. Also saw tons of eagles. There were a couple rocky islands covered in sea lions and harbor seals living the good life....no orcas.

I cannot express how happy we were with the way Captain Jon propelled us towards the whales he saw during our tour. I was amazed that we saw so many whale in such a short time period . His experience at spotting whale is suburb and Rachel excels at entertaining and informing the passengers on their catamaran. If you are... More

Captain Louis Hook and Ali were great hosts on our whale watching trip. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and so willing to answer questions. Not only did we see five humpback whales but harbor seals and an island full of stellar sea lions. Seeing the whales in action was so awesome! It was the highlight of my trip to Alaska. Highly...

You can't wrong with this tour. Everybody sees something special when they take this tour. We got to watch a huge school of whales 'bubble feeding'. Even the crew on our ship were in awe because there is such a small opportunity to see this happening.
