We were cruising with Princess and did not book a whale watch with them as they were $200. We got off the ship to walk around and happened on to this company. They had a booth across the road near the bottom of the skytram. Jeremy sold us the tickets for $100. Their bus took us to a pier where we got on a great boat. We saw lots of whales, orca and humpback. Scott, Dick, and Ken were the crew. Gave us bottled water and granola bars for snack. Had a naturalist on board that talked to us. This was a good trip so save your money and book when you get off the ship. They dropped us off at the Mendenhall Glacier and told us where to get on a bus to return to ship with our tour stub.

This company evidently does more than the whale watch tours because we picked up a city tour and Mendenhall glacier experience and had a great time. Ben was our driver and he gave the city tour with the added touch of personal experience stories. The Mendenhall glacier was fabulous -- don't miss it while in the Juneau area. This tour was quite a bit higher on our cruise ship -- we picked it up on shore for about $35 less.

I booked this excursion on the pier outside the cruise ship. During the tour, I had the chance to see many eagles and plenty of whales bubble feeding. Awesome!!! The guides were informative and friendly. The boat was big enough so everyone had a perfect view of the whales and of Alaska. I combined this tour with the Mendenhall Glacier tour which made for a perfect morning.

Wonderful tour. Went on a small boat. Only about 20 to 25 people. Everybody had a good seat and a good view. Found whales almost immediately. Once whales were found some went up top to view and the rest of us went out front. Plenty of whales. The tour leader was wonderful with colorful insight and great knowledge of the whales. We saw a mother, baby and a third adult. Would do this excursion again.

I booked this on the dock of the cruise ship on an impulse, and although it wasn't a long excursion - maybe 2 hours - we saw eagles, whales, dolphins and sea lions. My 15 year old son got a great kick out of the sea lions vying for space on the buoy. Our guides, Simin and Emily, were very enthusiastic. Emily acted as if she thought she had the best job in the world, and she made it a very pleasant experience. I would recommend this, as it was a highlight of our Alaska trip.
