Hi, we went on a cruise in Sept,2014. We used M&M Excursions (they are local). We had the best experience. The boat was a 14 passenger boat. Much more intimate setting compared to the 40 passenger boat the cruise line offered. Our pilots were the best in their knowledge of the whales. I would highly suggest using this company. We...

While on an Alaskan cruise we experienced this tour, we saved on this excursion becasue we did not book it through the cruise line. It was a great experience and I would definitely do it again! We did not see a lot of whales but we saw enough. We also saw many sea lions! You must have a good camera... More

What an adventure and a very knowledgeable tour guide. Lots of Humpbacks and a baby in the pod. Learned all about how to predict how & when they would breach the water and then also found the Orcas' A very large group trailing the Humpbacks and learned a lot about them also. To see these mammals in their natural habitat,... More

We booked this combo along with the Mendenhall Glacier. Our guides were superb and we not only saw many whales they adjusted the itinerary as we went along so we got to see humpbacks bubble netting which is a special treat.

We booked the Juneau Whale Watch and Mendenhall Glacier Combo online before our cruise. I was worried about knowing where to go since we didn't book through the ship, but they gave great directions on what to do when we arrived in port and we had no problem locating them. I've been on whale watch trips in other areas of... More

We booked the Juneau Whale Watch and Mendenhall Glacier Combo. Due to the poor tender organisation on the Celebrity ship we arrived late for the trip. This wasn't a problem for them as they just swapped the itinerary around so we got on the bus to the glacier first. The driver was very amusing and informative all the way up... More

Unlucky that it was the only foggy day of our trip but a great captain and crew managed to find and get us close to humpback whales. Thank you to them.
