This is an extremely well-organized experience by Allen Marine Tours. It is worth every cent of the charge. We saw the glacier calving on a beautiful day. There is history and wildlife everywhere you look. This is a must-do tour.

Allen Marine runs a great tour. They are prepared and know what to do and where to go. Admittedly we were probably lucky. We saw an abundance of Orcas, as well as Humpbacks. Icing on the cake were Harbor Seals, River Otters, Sea Lions, and birds galore. The boat it just the right size for the number aboard, the staff helpful and friendly. Way exceeded our expectations!

Booked this tour through Carnival Cruise Lines (hope this is the right tour operator). Bus picked us up at the pier and had a fantastic driver. Funny, entertaining and informative. First stop was Mendenhall Glacier. Always breath taking. In all fairness, I was here ten years ago and it saddened me to see how much the glacier has receded. Spent nearly an hour there. Walked the trails a bit, when it the visitor center for a great vantage point of the glacier and park. Back on the bus we headed past Auke Lake to board the boat to see the whales. We had a great naturist on board who gave us all kinds of information pertaining to the area's wildlife. Shortly after we left the pier we did see whales. Found several "hot spots" and spent some time watching the whales and even made a short pit stop to see some Steller sea lions. Nice tour and plenty of wildlife. Free beverages, donuts and hot chocolate rounded out the boat ride. Restrooms were available onboard and clean. If Alaska is on your bucket list, don't put it off and take this tour.

Like other reviews we did an excursion from the ship which included whale watching followed by the Mendenhall glacier. We saw lots of whales which was fantastic as well as sea lion. It was wet and cold on the day of our visit but this did not lessen the thrill of seeing Whales.

We were on a cruise and booked a whale watching/Mendenhall Glacier tour. The whale watching was fun and we got lucky and saw a lot of whales!! The boat was very comfortable and offered plenty of inside and outside viewing points. The guide was knowledgeable and gave just the right amount of commentary. We also enjoyed coffee, donuts and smoked salmon during the trip. After the whale watching, a bus took us to the mendenhall glacier, where we were on our own. I would have maybe liked a bit more guidance at the glacier, but that said, we enjoyed a great hike on our own to the waterfalls. It is a spectacular place.
