We booked this tour based on other Tripadvisor reviews. We had Olivia and Greg as our guides and they were fantastic! We were able to see sea lions, seals, bald eagles and, of course, the whales. At first the whales were being difficult and not making themselves known, but by the end of the tour they started coming out and... More

This was a very good experience. Captain Alex and Tommy were very knowledgable and with a good sense of humor. The boat was one of the smaller 24 passenger jet boats that gave a more uniquely personal experience. We saw about 6 to 8 whales in two hours. Not as close as we would like to get but I understand...

We booked this cruise independently rather than through the cruise ship, and we're so glad we did. Captain Alex and guide Olivia were great fun and so informative (and it's cheaper with them too). We saw the whales do their amazing bubble ring trick not once but twice! We saw the whales breach and fluke, and we saw a group... More

Whale Watching was not on our list of to dos but it was the only thing available within the time constraints of our ship. We booked it at the kiosks. Everything happens for a reason. We had a...

This was a highlight on our Alaskan cruise. We took the early excursion and it turned out to be exceptional. Rumors were that a pod of Orchas were in the bay, and we found them. I got many extremely close up shots. We then took off looking for the "bubble feeders" and did we ever find them! Saw one breach,... More

If you are in Juneau, and want to huge whales up close again and again, then Juneau whale watch is the way to go! They are very informative, safe, time conscious, and professional.

Awesome crew and boat. Steve, Brandon, and Alex were super helpful and made the trip a ton of fun. We saw more humpback whales than we could count and an orca. The glacier was cool, if you are going to walk to the waterfall make sure to pay attention to time.
