We chose Juneau Tours and Whale Watching from the options available on the Juneau dock, after the tour we originally booked through our cruise ship line was cancelled. We glad we did! Calvin, who was the guide on the boat, was very friendly and knowledgeable, and, best of all, we saw LOTS of humpbacks! These local guys know where to go to find the whales! On the way back to port, the captain stopped the boat and hollered, "Orcas!" and sure enough, a number of orcas were indeed near boat--one surfaced right near the back of the boat where we were standing! We compared notes with others on our cruise ship who took whale-watching tours that day in Juneau and we saw WAY more whales than they did. This is the one to take if you want to see whales, and they also combine the whale watching with a stop at Mendenhall Glacier too, if you have time. Highly recommended!

Calvin was very informative, and our captain ensured the whales got close to us in an ethical manner. We saw so many whales and a lot of them swam right up to our boat.
