Loved the boat and the captain and helpers...we drove straight out and saw so many whales. What an amazing experience to see these majestic creatures! Worth every penny!

We went out with Captain Larry and Kelly. Had a great time. When we stopped to watch the whales the top of the boat was very crowded. Stayed in the cabin and learned a lot from Captain Larry. Was a nice trip. I just wish we had gotten as close to the whales as some of the other boats in... More

We went on a whale watching voyage on July 14, 2014 with Capt. Larry driving the boat and Josh as the naturalist. We had no trouble finding their office and it was very organized getting to the docks. The bus driver provided a nice commentary about what we were passing and Juneau history on the way to the whale watching... More

We arrived at the office for our tour when told 15 minutes early. By the time it was all said and done 2 hours later we were at the harbor. Our private charter, (which we paid extra for)was now combined with everyone else. 44 people total on the boat. We had to have some of our party stand up as... More

We saw a group if 5 hump back whales and also "Sasha". Captain Larry, Captain Matt, Kelly and Taylor were excellent. They were so excited themselves to see the whales that it was infectious. Great tour!

My wife and another couple took the whale watching cruise with Capt. Larry on August 6th and after an hour into out trip the coast guard boarded our boat and arrested Capt. Larry for DUI. 13 people had to wait while they gave capt Larry all the DUI tests. We were late getting back to the dock, and they arrested... More

Had previously been with this company on two trips which were good. This trip was not good as we did not get close to the whales. There were several boats in the area and the whales were found. All the other boats were getting in about 100 yards from the whales, we were keeping about 1/4 mile and the captain... More

Went on the Whale Watching tour on 7/29/14. Couldn't have been more pleased. Whales were bubble feeding, so there were plenty of boats looping around. What sets this company apart: 1) The boat itself has two levels, one enclosed with sliding windows to shelter from the wind/rain (and there's always wind/rain). But also a top exposed deck they open up... More

I highly recommend Orca Enterprises. I have been their customer for many years, and have always enjoyed going out with them. They have a well run business, that is organized and. customer priority. Cpt Larry is a treasure to experience, true passion and at "one" with the humpbacks. The naturalist's on board are accurate and always have an environmental preservation... More
