Just finished whale watching on the Orca Odysea. Fantastic trip. Saw five incredible bubble netting displays by a 9 whale pod. Captain Larry and Kelly and Matt were awesome!!! Would do it again in a heartbeat.

The staff answered my inquiries on a frequent basis in a positive manner as I was trying to juggle my schedule. The small number of people on the whale watching boat was superb. Captain Larry is so knowledgable---don't miss this whale watching event. The Salmon Bake was neat--salmon cooked over an open fire in a neat wooded area. The setting... More

Orca gave us a great whale watch/glacier combo trip. Boat was perfect with both indoor, outdoor back deck and upper outside viewing spots. About 30 people on boat was the right size. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Saw seals, orcas and humpbacks (both with babies) on our trip. The baby humpback breeched several times. Auke Bay was gorgeous, with calm... More

We booked this trip last minute based on a recommendation from Tracy at Wild Wolf tours in Ketchikan (highly recommend). We were cruising on the Celebrity Solstice and had an amazing naturalist on board, Brent Nixon. When we booked our tour, the sales woman said " your naturalist on board your ship will be your naturalist on this tour." We... More

Captain Larry is an expert, he has the most experience by a long shot. During our trip, other companies/boats radio him to see what he is finding. Orca Enterprises voluntarily paricipates in a NOAA program that helps ease the tourism pressure on the whales. This is great because there were about 11 boats in the water surrounding one group of...

This was a great, informative excursion. A small group on a decent sized boat with good views and comfortable seating inside, a nice open area outside and a great viewing area up on top (with a ladder type set of stairs up so not for everyone). Captain Larry knows where the whales are. He was assisted by two others; one... More

OMG cannot say enough about this great local company. Shop local stay local. This is still the United States. No need to book through the boat. This company has great prices and even better staff and amazing experiences that are priceless.

I honestly didn't know what to expect when I booked this tour for our group of 9 (4 adults and 5 kids). But it was way better than anything I could have imagined! Capt. Larry was very knowledgeable, as were the other staff members. We got very close to the whales (or rather they got close to us!). The staff... More
