We booked this trip for the day our cruise called at Juneau. The decision was made on the strength of these reviews and the price compared to the ships tours which were for much larger numbers. We were not disappointed. There were 4 of us on this trip and, as others have said, Kelly was so full of enthusiasm it rubbed off on us. We saw lots of whales and got some really good pictures and video.
After the whale watching trip we were taken to the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Centre. Most interesting. It was just a shame that the rain was so heavy that we were disinclined to walk any of the trails.

An amazing trip and excellent value for money. Strongly recommended.

Probably the only family owned whale watching left, totally awesome. Capt Larry and the crew knew exactly where to go, we had 28 folks on the boat, unlike the cruise ship tours which have 50 or 60 folks on their tour. Snacks were provided, and the interesting thing was that the bigger boats followed Capt Larry around, as they seemed to know that he knew where to go. I would recommend this to any and all, you will not be dissapointed.

Had chosen this company based on reviews (and the fact they allowed children on their trips - we took our 7 and 4 year old). Over the moon!! Captain Larry and Kelly were brilliant - enthusiastic, knowledgable and friendly. We saw 12 humpbacks and they were close enough to smell them :)
Kids were treated really well.
Especially appreciated their conservation / whale centered ethics. And good to support a local business.

Also great there were only 12 or so of us on board!

Highly recommend them

Had a wonderful time with Captain Larry and Kelly. We saw orca whales and grey whales. Kelly made it so much fun with her enthusiasm. She carried on everytime a whale was spotted, it really added to the excitement. I would highly recommend going with Orca. Great time and a great crew.

Went with Captain Larry and Kelly who has excellent eagle eyes for spotting those whales. Scenery was awesome by itself. A bald eagle posed by the dock before we left. Our first sighting was a rogue Orca. We saw at least a dozen humpbacks. I'm very glad Captain Larry is involved in protecting these creatures from over zealous boat captains. They are truly a treasure. Overall, it was very informative.
