Owner description: Guaranteed Whales! - If whales are not seen on this excursion we will hand you $100 in CASH as you get off the boat. Since 2004 we have never missed seeing whales. Top Reasons to take this trip.1) Large catamaran style boat that is incredibly stable in rough seas. Small boats can get tossed around while this one is stable and fast when it gets rough. This is a great boat for guests in wheel chairs or with mobility challenges due to stability and room to move around. 2) Discounted child prices make this very affordable for families. 3) Departs and returns to Icy Strait Point at the cruise ship terminal, no vehicle transfers are required making the most of your time. 4) High viewing decks allow the best possible views of whales as more of the whale is visible from up high. 5) You are guaranteed to make it back to the ship, if an issue arrises on the tour, the ship will wait for you. 6) Icy Strait Point is a locally owned business that benefits the Native shareholders of Huna Totem Corporation.

This was a well worth activity. We saw tons of wildlife on our trip. A whale came right up to the boat. We also saw a sea otter, porpoises, sea lions , and eagle. The naturalist was very knowledgeable about the whales and the surrounding area.

We saw whales! Several of them. The trip was enjoyable and the guide was great. My only disappointment was just that it was quite crowded so it wasn't always easy to get up to the railings to see the whales, even though there was a front and back deck and an upper deck. We spent a lot of time trying to get into a position to see, especially for the kids. If I were to do a whale watch tour again, I'd go with a smaller boat/fewer people.

We saw at least 8 whales once we got to the spot. It was really amazing. We also appreciated the Tlingit guide on board who told us stories about growing up in Hoonah. It was a great expedition.
