Juneau Shore Excursion: Whale-Watching Adventure
From $136.50
Overview
Board a jet boat with extra-large windows and watch for humpbacks in the beautiful Auke Bay on this whale-watching shore excursion from Juneau port. A naturalist guide provides engaging commentary on the wildlife — including porpoises, sea lions and eagles — and local geology you see along the way. Capture that action shot of a breaching whale against the backdrop of the Alaskan mountains. Round-trip port transport included.
What to Expect
More than 65 humpback whales migrate annually to Auke Bay, also home to harbor seals, porpoises and bald eagles. Sign up for this 3.5-hour shore excursion that guarantees whale sightings and includes port pickup. At Auke Bay, board a jet boat that takes you to prime wildlife viewing locations.

Stand on the exterior observation deck or stay inside the cabin with extra-large windows — no matter where you are, take in great views of the marine life outside. Feel free to use the provided binoculars. Your naturalist guide shares fascinating facts about the humpbacks and mountain scenery you’ll snap pictures of along the way. On a clear day, you may even see Mendenhall Glacier.

After the cruise ends, enjoy transport back to Juneau port.

Great Experience

We were very pleased, got to photograph plenty of whales, service was great, the pilot tried very hard to ensure that we were able to get some unbelievable shots of the whales. Highly recommend this trip while you are in Juneau

Great experience

We booked a tour with Juneau Shore Excursions as they have a shorter tour than the ones that the cumruise ship offered. I was a little worried that the shortened tour would cost us an opportunity to see a whale. I'm very glad to say...More

They promised we'd see sea creatures and we surely did!

We took this trip with our son, daughter-in-law, and 6 year old grandson. It was the highlight of the trip for our grandson. We saw whales, including one that flashed its tail, and dived right in front of us. We saw a pod of orcas...More

Surprise: Purpoises and Sea Lions too!

This tour was memorable and fun! The ship captain and Sara were a wealth of knowledge, and they really catered to the tourists questions and requests. The boat was comfortable, maybe partly because the tour was underbooked that day. We had plenty of space to...More
