OMG!! The best day of my life!!! This is certainly a "MUST DO" when visiting Juneau!!! When we booked this adventure with Captain Greg he sent us a postcard that said both he and the whales would be waiting for us and he wasn't kidding!!! All members of his team including First Mate Harry and his lovely wife were more than accommodating and went above and beyond to ensure our visit with the whales was one we would never forget!! One of the things that impressed me was their true passion for what they do and that was certainly reflected in their knowledge/experience not only about the whales and other sea life but also about Juneau and Alaska itself. How much sea life can you see in four hours - well let me tell you!!! I would have been very satisfied just to see the humpback whales but was also able to see Orca's, Sea Otters, Stellar Sea Lions and Porpoises - REALLY? Yes Really!!!!The sound of wolves in the far off distance just added to the already amazing ambience!!! Oh yeah and don't forget the majestic bald eages!!!! I would be remiss if I didn't mention the most incredible/famous brownies provided - worth the trip themselves!!!! The other good thing is that we were able to get very close to the whales and we were able to share this experience with just a few (there were only six tourists) on the boat. I have done alot of travelling and I can honestly say this is the best "tour" I have taken!!!! We I can hardly wait to go again!!! Thanks Captain Greg!!!

We went whale watching with Captain Greg and First Mate Henry. Both men were very friendly and able to share their love & knowledge of Alaska to make a four hour trip over much too soon. The stories told were very intersting . We saw humpback whales, orcas, sea lions, sea otters & bald eagles, with the sound of wolves howling from a nearby Island. The homemade brownies, traditionally eaten once you see the first whales were fantastic. The small number of people of the catamaran made it easy to see everything and take pictures. We had missed cruising around Glacier Bay due to weather so Tina (Captain's wife) drove us to the Mendenhal Glacier on our way back from the whale watching. She waited for us to take our video and pictures and we really appreciated her taking her time to do that for us. This is a must see attraction while in Alaska.

We just did our second whale watching trip with Captain Greg and the second time was just as awesome as the first time! Not only did we see plenty of whales we also saw a group of 8 whales bubble net feeding! What a fantastic experience. The brownies were as good as I remembered. If you are in Juneau please consider doing a whale watching trip with Captain Greg, you will not be sorry!

Great way to whale watch. 8 people on boat. Got up close with the whales. Saw humpback and orcas. Sea lions and bald eagles. Capt greg and first mate very knowledgeable about the whales and will see that you get as close as possible. Has enclosed cabin for you as well as open deck area to view whales and take photos. Restroom on board as well. They do have binoculars for you to use if you do not have own.

We spent a great afternoon whale watching with Captain Greg. Saw humpback whales, sea lions and bald headed eagles. Snacks were excellent and the whole experience was awesome. Don't bother even looking anywhere else as this trip cannot be beaten!! Thanks to Captain Greg and his crew.
