Was a last minute decision. Braved booking an excursion not through the cruise. Was more overwhelming in Alaska. Booked through shore excursions.com. It was the best decision of the trip. The whale watching was soooo much better than Juneau. We saw probably 20 or so...More

This tour was about 3 1/2 hours. Relatively small boat with only 16 persons. Snacks and drinks were provided. We saw sea otters, including babies, many porpoises and a few humpback whales. The whales weren't too active that day and we only got really close...More

What an amazing experience. We saw both humpbacks and Orca's on our whale watching journey with Captain Dan and guide Peter. They knew exactly where to go. Nice small crowd which is way better than the crowded cruise ship tours. We would definitely recommend.

We chose this tour vs the cruise line tour. They picked us up at the excursion center near the icy straits point cruise dock. The vessel is a water taxi with room for 16 passengers. Because the vessel was small we were able to maneuver...More

It is very cold right now. You will not be able to go on the outside deck. Not sure if cruises are still running. The inner passageway is usually calm but the ocean is very rough..
