Captain Scott Hursey has inherent local knowledge of the waters and whales. His M/V Pelican is a comfortable vessel for an all day trip. The whales are incredible and listening on the hydrophone enhances the experience. Just go with Scott you’ll be amazed.

Highly recommend a tour of LeConte Glacier with Captain Scott Hursey. His knowledge and 30 years of experience make him the best possible captain and guide for a breathtaking and daring tour of Alaska’s most active glacier. His boat Pelican comfortably navigated the dense field of icebergs to bring us right to the face of the glacier. After a whole summer of touring Southeast Alaska by boat, our one day with Alaska Passages remains most memorable. .

We spent 2 wonderful days with Scott on The Pelican and would highly recommend his tours. We did one day of whale watching and one day at the LeConte Glacier. Scott is very experienced with great knowledge of and love for the areas he guides in. He took great care to point out all of the different animals, young birds, and beautiful sights. We saw 50+ whales on our whale watching trip, and even got to see 2 breach! The boat is comfortable and safe, and we appreciated that it had a small bathroom too, as we were out on the water all day.

We enjoyed an amazing Humpback whale watching excursion in Fredrick Sound. We saw so many whales all around the boat. Scott knows where to go and goes out of his way to ensure a great experience. This was a very special day. The only way it could have been better was if we saw a whale or two breach but that's a bit outside of his control! Perhaps a great excuse to go back. This made the trip.

This was highlight of our trip. Scott is very knowledgeable and enhances the trip. Highly recommend, do not miss this tour. The boat is very comfortable with lots of windows and warmth, and has a toilet too! Would do this trip over and over. AAAA rating
