This tour was great!! We say all kinds of wildlife and sealife!! Lots and lots of Eagles, sea otters, whales, even about a dozen Orca!!! Captain was very knowledgeable. He seemed to know exactly where to go to find the sea life and how to follow them. I would do this tour again in a minute!!

We had a great time on this trip and even got to see the whales bubble feeding. They knew right where we needed to go to find them. Amanda and Steve did a fantastic job and the bus driver gave us a mini tour as we drove out to the bay.

We booked our whale watching excursion with this company and it was AMAZING. Everyone that works here is so friendly and knowledgeable . Capt. Larry and his crew made this experience the highlight of our trip to Alaska.

They oversold and under produced. We seemed to be chasing where the other tour boats were already - in search of a whale. All this sonar they had for detection Must have been off for the day. Wasted $500. Now what about that money back guarantee?

We were not disappointed with this excursion. They fist took us to a Lodge for luch where we were servived Salmon which was grilled or chicken if you preferred. We then went to look for whales and were not disappointed. We saw many instances of Bubble-net feeding, rooling, slapping of their pectoral fins as well as teir tail flukes. We... More

Booked this tour last minute from dock. It was FANTASTIC! Asked if I would get $100 back if we didn't see whales, was told we would get all our money back if we didn't see whales. WE SAW WHALES! Capt. Steve and Elias made this little boat rock, all 16 passengers were excited to see and hear the whales. If... More

Went out with Captain John and Elias on 6/26/15 for the 3:00 trip and could not have had a better experience. While we saw multiple whales and three separate "whale netting breaches", one of which, was just feet from the bow, the real treat was Captain John's and Elias's charisma and excitement for what we were seeing. It was a... More

Our group of 5 had the pleasure of going out to whale watch with Jason & Christian. I don't know how many times they have conducted these tours, but they seemed just as excited as we were to spot whales. They looked for clues (seagulls) as to where the whales would surface and navigated to those spots. They went to... More
