We had a great time with Captain Harry. I not only took one tour with him, but two. As a pro photographer, Harry has a fantastic sense of photography and was able to find and anticipate action and lighting. Highly recommended. One important thing is to take longer tours to allow for options. Weather Permitting isn't tied to an assembly... More

Booked this excursion for Alaska cruise. The entire experience was top notch. We had a party of 6, seniors with a teenager, and wanted a better look than the ship's crowded shore excursion. After searching through websites and reviews, we decided on weatherpermittingAlaska.com. I called and was given the information needed to complete our booking. Captain Harry was mindful of... More

LOVED our whale watching trip with Captain Harry! We wanted a small group experience instead of being on a big boat with a hundred + people and we were treated to an awesome morning with a passionate naturalist who loves the Juneau area and Alaskan wildlife! We saw lot of whales, including moms with babies and whales breaching. Because of... More

This was a fantastic experience. We went whale watching with a group of 10. Capt Harry's boat was very comfortable. Heated. Did not need to compete with hundreds of people to see the whales, and sea lions. Capt Harry is very knowledgeable and tells very interesting stories about sea life as well as about Alaska life in general. We also... More

We were blessed to see a breached humpback whale which they say doesn't happen often that they get to see it so it was pretty cool almost missed the picture but got some of it. While there may be no guaranty is a must do while in Alaska. Nice scenery make sure you pick a day that is sunny and... More

What a fantastic trip! Would definitely do this again. Highly recommend Captain Harry. He was very entertaining and informative. My family of 4 were the only ones on his boat, which had a closed off interior cabin if needed. We observed several very playful humpbacks for quite a while. Also saw porpoises and sea lions. We were on the water... More

Even though most whale watch excursions here have a money back guarantee, most passengers will be disappointed if the whale sightings are few. On our day with Weather Permitting, we saw a single humpback who seldom breached, never surfaced the tail,. and mostly stayed submerged. Admittedly, it was a bit early in the season for bountiful whale watching, but excursions... More
