This was our first time to Alaska, and whale watching was top on my list of "To Do's." Gastineau Guiding did not disappoint! Captain Tobie and Guide Matt were fun, as excited as we were when whales were spotted, helpful, and made sure we were treated well in all ways. I highly recommend Gastineau Guiding! That tour was awesome!

We got on the bus & it took us up to Mendenhall Glacier. What a amazing place with the water fall close to it. It was raining pretty good after we got dropped off so we chose not to walk all the way down to it but close enough to get some good pics. We got to see a porcupine, salmon, baby bear, never did see Momma. When the bus picked us up there they then took us down to the harbor to get on a boat to see the whales. I believe the Captain's name was Rich & Hannah narrated the whole trip. She was very knowledgeable & answered all our questions & pointed out all the whales. We got to see Orcas & humpbacks. So cool !! I would use them again when we go back. Thank you Alaska Tales for allowing us to have a great adventure.

Highly recommend this tour company. It exceeded our expectations. We viewed - a pod of a Orcas, Humpback whales, eagles, black bears and 2 cubs. It was a wonderful day. The skipper and team were knowledgeable and made the day perfect. Bus driver - everyone involved was outstanding.

This was a great trip. We traveled about 30 minutes on a bus , passed mendenhall glacier , to the waters edge where we bordered a new whale watching boat . You could stay under cover or go out doors to see the whales . We saw humpback whales bubble netting ! Feeding frenzy for their trip to Hawaii. Narration was helpful.

The tour at Juneau was comfortable and not scary at all the Captain and his assistant Matt are very knowledgeable and friendly. Just appropriate number of guests. Appreciate the snacks and a clean restroom. I was hesitant to do the trip, but as soon as I saw the boat and the staff I already felt comfortable.
