We boarded a catamaran especially designed for wildlife observing, with large windows for optimum viewing. Complimentary binoculars and souvenir route maps were provided, along with snacks and beverages. We had a great captain who was in no hurry, so we were able to see at our leisure a lot of whales. The captain positioned the boat so that we had... More

Had a whale of a great time with Captain T and Jess. They were excellent. Saw a few whales, saw some dolphins playing, saw a salmon skipping over the water trying to get away from a seal that was pursuing him. Was adequate restroom facilities. Had snacks and water onboard. Jess was very informative on the whales and other items... More

My wife and I had a terrific time on this Excursion. Our Guide was Steve. He did an excellent job of showing where the Whales were. His driver also did a great job of positioning the boat so we could view the whales. We saw several whales on the Excursion. Steve was also very knowledgeable of the area and shared... More

My daughter and I went out last week. Cory is great and he's got a really nice boat. We saw orcas which apparently is rare. We followed them for quite some time and got good but not fantastic views of them. I definitely recommend this company.

We just came back from Alaska and saw the bubbling activities by the humpback whales and the experience was awesome. You can see this only in Juneau and I highly recommend you to go with Juneau Whale Watch cuz their boat is new and Capt Ken, naturalist Michelle and Gabi will ensure that you have a great time.

We enjoyed the trip, despite the rain and highly recommend it. The bus driver, the boat captain and his mate were all welcoming, entertaining and informative. We were given plenty of detail about the boat and where we were going and lots of information about whales. Very nice boat. Water bottles and snack bars provided. Saw lots of whales.

This is the whale watching tour you need to sign-on with. The husband and daughters and I boarded this lovely vessel one glorious, sunny, June day with Captain T. and First Mate, Christian and about 25 other passengers and it was a great experience. These boats are a little smaller and faster and spotlessly clean and there are fewer passengers.... More

This was a spur of the moment excursion we booked off of the ship. The both was very comfortable. The drive to the boat was nice and we got to see a lot of the city. We arrived at the boat and were greeted by our captain and Gabby. The water ride to see the whales was so beautiful. I... More

Our trip on Juneau Tours Whale watch was on May 31 2014. The shuttle to the dock was nice, the driver knowledgeable on the area. The boat was comfortable and enclosed which was nice as it was kind of a misty, rainy day. 1/2 hour to get to the whales, about the same back. We saw a lot of Whales... More
