From the moment we were picked up Aleisha (very cool bus driver) and taken to the launch with Captain Paul and Naturalist Beth, the adventure had begun! An easy motor out to where the whales were, about 12 people on board, marvellous weather and visibility and about a dozen whales came to join us! Beth was clearly in her element, and helped inform what was going on. When someone dropped a wrapper overboard, Captain Paul took the time to chase it down to retrieve it - symptomatic of the care they have. On the way to the Mendenhall Glacier, Aleisha regaled with local tales and colour. Highly recommended for everyone! Gunalcheesh!

This was a fabulous tour and the company communicates well, shows up on time, provides great instructions. I believe it is less expensive if you book with them directly vs. through the cruise ship or travel agency - we loved them! Saw tons of whales!

Everybody we met was friendly and enthusiastic about our adventure to see humpback the whales! The captain of our vessel was careful and slowed down waves to make our journey pleasurable. I have back troubles and am leery of too much bouncing. Our naturist was simply giddy when a whale popped its head out of the waters and took a look at us. We were fortunate to see several whales and the signature whale tail. Very pleased with trip and crew, we highly recommend Dolphin Jet Boat Tours.

Amazing experience seen about 12 humpback whales close up. This really was the highlight of our trip. From the bus driver who drove us to the port from our meeting point to the captain of the boat and the naturalist on board they all went above and beyond to ensure our trip was unforgettable. So glad we booked this tour rather than the crowded tours booked via the cruise line. Highly recommend.

Alicia and the white school bus picked us up in the parking lot next to the cable tramway. Her smile helped put our insecurities to rest. In fact, we asked if she could join us for the whale watching 2 hour+ trip and she agreed. Beautiful Raven was the guide and the clean small boat worked out perfectly.
We saw many whales and learned about the region. Then had short stop to see the Mendenhall glacier and salmon hatcheries. We also saw dozens of bald eagles, young and old.
Such a knowledgeable and fun team who served us beautifully. Our tour was better than those who used the cruise ship excursion and we paid much less. So support this family-run Alaskan company and book on their website! They went way beyond to give us a great 3 hour total trip. I will recommend to all friends who go to Juneau! Thank you, Dolphin Tours!!

I can not brag on this excursion enough whale watching was amazing mendenhall was breathtaking. An earlier disembarking led to us calling Tracey and she juggled some things around and went above and beyond. Couldn’t give them enough stars for their hospitality

we planned our visit coming from San Diego California to Juneau Alaska. I decided to call the dolphin jet boat tours to ask a couple questions first the young lady who answered her name was Sommer was honestly so sweet and she was giving me information on things to do as well, the day of our tour, I was kind of lost, and I saw a guy who was wearing the company’s shirt . he was so nice and let me know. Oh yeah, I am pretty sure. I’m going to be the one driving the boat today, so follow me. The whole time the crew was amazing, they give you snacks and they’re so sweet I had a three-year-old and they were also being very interactive with her which I loved definitely would recommend this company to everybody that is visiting in Juneau Alaska. The crew is honestly what made the whole experience the best.

Saw lots of humpback whales and awesome scenery. Not only did we see lots of whales we watched 7 whales bubble feeding which was amazing. Captain got us to our locations quickly so your time is spent watching the humpbacks. Highly recommend the jet boat tour.

Was fabulous. The whole trip was on very courteous and helpful. I use a walker and was helped to make my trip with ease. The best of Captain Dave took us to an area where the humpback whales were all around the boat. Excellent

We did the whale watching 3 hour tour with Dolphin just 2 days ago and had a wonderful time. The whole experience, from the bus transfer to the jetty (with a great intro to the town and its history by our friendly driver), to the boat ride to the whale watching area and back (with great explanations on whales and their behaviour). We saw at least 15 whales and a few orcas. Since the boat is small, you get fairly close to the whales. Our 9 year old son had an awesome time, taking many pictures and asking questions to the guides.

Overall, a fantastic tour, very well organised and great value for money.
