We took the Harv and Marv whale watch tour June 30th. Captain Jayleen has lived there her entire life and had so much knowledge of the area and about whales. The whale watch was wonderful and she also took us to see eagles and sea lions. We got lucky and saw lunge feeding and a baby whale breech 5 times.... More

Book with Harv and Marv for your whale watching! There were 16 in our family and they were willing to take all of us on one boat so we could be together. They were so very knowledgeable of the waters, the wildlife and the history. Great fun!!

A great excursion off a cruise ship. Booking was easy and we were met on time at the cruise ship. We spent about 3-1/2 hours on the boat searching and watching numerous whales, Stellar sea lions, and seals. There were six of us and we had the boat to ourselves which meant no jostling to see the whales. Our naturalist... More

I’ve gone back and forth whether I wanted to give this review. However, with that being said, I want to give OUR personal experience so before anyone books they know about this rule and how it affects your trip. It is stated on the Harv and Marv’s website so this is not their fault in any way. The reservation process,... More

I was incredibly impressed with EVERYONE at Harv and Marv's and I mean everyone from the company representative who met us off our cruise ship, to the bus driver to our guide and captain everyone was incredible. Knowledgeable, friendly, attentive and genuine. Additionally, we had the most amazing whale watching experience, the whales came up right beside the boat and... More

Great organisation -- everything ran to time. Only the 2 of us on the boat with Captain Shel. He was so passionate about the whales --- a truly wonderful experience watching 16 humpbacks go past our boat after we had seen them bubble net feeding THREE times. Plus a mother with her naughty young calf who just played around for... More

Experience was top rated for whole family! We are grandparents and had our two children, spouses and four grandchildren. Harv and Marv prices were much better than cruise ship package and their boats were small allowing a "private" trip with excellent viewing for our family. They were very competitive with other private tours in price while giving about 30 minutes... More

Captain Jeff took us on the most amazing whale watch I have ever experienced. The first thing he said was "Welcome to Juneau, Hawaii!" The weather was perfect and he promised we would see some amazing things as we were leaving the dock. Captain Jeff did not disappoint. Within an hour, we were surrounded by humpback whales bubble net feeding.... More

The entire experience was professional!! I am one who loves organization! And everything was on time and as promised. The English language does not contact the proper adjectives to describe the experience we had with this group. Captain Shel was very informative, entertaining and extremely knowledgeable about the whales and about the area. Hard to say what was most impressive...his... More
