We did not book this tour through our cruise line and saved by purchasing it after leaving the ship. We were not disappointed! The jet boat Captain Mike was able to get us to the whales and the naturalist on board (Cinnamon) was knowledgeable and so pleasant! There were plenty of whales in the area even in the later part of September. We even had one breach for us not once, but twice! Even saw a couple of seal! Be sure to bring cold weather gear if you are not used to it, because it was rather cool on the water. There were snacks, hot chocolate and coffee as well as bottled water available which was included in your tour price. Oh, and don't forget your camera!

We had the BEST time on our whale watching trip. We missed out on buying tickets for this excursion through our cruiseline. So, we walked off the boat and for less than half price we found Dolphin Tours. Holy Toledo did we get our money's worth! Take the trip! We saw sea lions, dolphins, and humpback whales breeching! We left the boat with adrenaline rushing! AMAZING!

We walked off our ship and were able to buy 7 spots on a whale watching tour with Dolphin. 40% less than the cruise line. There is lots of capacity in Juneau so don't be afraid of getting sold out.
Dolphin did a good job of getting us to the whales and the tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable.

Our Whale Watching tour with Dolphin was amazing! The price was a lot less than the tours offered through our cruise, and we got more than our money's worth! Captain Mike, and our Naturalists Mike and Cinnamon were entertaining and informative. On our trip we saw several hump backs, seal, stellar sea lions, and a pod of resident orcas! The tour included a snack as well as a drink, and a detour to Mendenhall Glacier!! If you're in Juneau, take this tour!

My family and I took this tour and had absolutely the best time. We saw whales and sea lions and were lucky enough to see a family of orcas. Katt was wonderful in explaining the wildlife we saw, giving us history of the area and really looking hard for the whales. The boat captain was outstanding as well. Overall, one of the best experiences we had on our Alaskan vacation!
