Had a great time on the boat. The naturalist was great and got so excited when a whale breached for us and then had a good time slapping the water with her tail. Saw same bald eagles right as we were boarding the boat. Had a great time no issues getting around the boat. Was so worth the time and... More

My 2 friends & I spent a morning whale watching with Captains Larry & Matt. We easily saw 50 humpback whales, 2 as close as 10 feet from our boat. Captain Larry was so knowledgeable, & Matt was so enthusiastic. The boat was not crowded & easy to move around in. It was the highlight of my trip to Alaska.... More

We took this whale watching tour in 5/2009 and decided to do it again in 8/2014, because the first time was so good. We were fortunate to have Captain Larry on both of our tours. He knows where to go to see the whales. We noticed other whale watching tour boats following us to find the whales. On our 5/2009... More

A special thanks to Julie, our gal with Cruise Planners for booking this excursion!!!! It helped to have a BEAUTIFUL, sunny day in Juneau but, it was the crew of the Awesome Orca and pilot, Matt who took us to where we could see so many whales blowing, sea lions lounging, and puffins skimming along the water that made this...

We booked our whale-watching tour independently of our cruise ship for 8/25/14. If any of you know anything about Celebrity Solstice and their fabulous Naturalist, Brent Nixon, you will understand that he is the best and most fabulous speaker in the world about the wildlife and wildlife protection in Alaska. We booked our tour with Captain Larry and his crew... More

At the recommendation of our travel agent, my wife and I booked our excursions off of the Island Princess via shoretrip.com. We booked the TRIPLE COMBO...WHALES, MENDENHALL GLACIER & SALMON BAKE trip while in the port of Juneau, Alaska. This was the absolute best excursion we've ever gone on in our lives. First we saw bald eagles by the dozens... More

I booked this tour on the recommendation of my friend/travel agent and was not disappointed. We were on a cruise and only in Juneau for the day. The day started badly on the ship because of tendering delays, and we were late for our tour, but they were kind enough to hold the bus for about 20 minutes for us.... More

This was a great tour. We went at 9:30 so there were only 10 of us on a 40 passenger boat. Saw a large # of humpback whales with a pod of 12 that were group fishing. The boat was fast and easy to get great pictures from. The crew was great about telling us all kinds of whale facts... More

The best excursion of our trip to Alaska! We even got to see a rare bubble feeling. We highly recommend this trip. The staff was very informative and professional.
