“Whale of a Trip”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We took the whale-watching trip with Alaska Travel Adventures and had a very nice time. The boat was clean and fairly with comfortable with restroom facility on board. We had to ride for about 20 minutes before whales were sighted and we spent what seemed like two hours watching for whales and seeing lots of breaches and spouting. The scenery is so beautiful there. While we were watching the whales and the engine was cut, it was so quiet and peaceful. On the way back we got to see sea lions and a glacier. Bottled water was provided. We were taken to the pier in a nice little bus which picked us up at the end of the boat ride. We really enjoyed seeing the whales. If none had been seen then a large part of our tour cost would be refunded. But we saw lots of whales which made it worthwhile.

“Awesome glacier experience!”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We had such a great canoe trip! Sam C., our guide was friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable about glaciers and the local area. My mom and I learned so much from him and had a wonderful time out on the lake. It was amazing how close you are able to get to the glacier!!! This is a wonderful adventure!

We always wondered what it would be like to pan for gold. Now we have a better appreciation of the work involved.

“Nice float trip - far from the Glacier”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

If you are looking for a white water raft trip - this is not it. Very tame and much more of a float trip. We took this trip specifically to see the Medenhall Glacier and the only disappointment was we were quite far from the Glacier. We were on the raft were the guide rowed - you also have the option of being on a raft that the tourists row. Our other friends took a bus for a lot less money and were much closer then we were. Staff on this trip were very pleasant and helpful in getting everyone in their rain gear and life preservers.
Our tour guide was also a lot of fun and kept everyone entertained.

“Sea Kayaking in Juneau, Alaska”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

My family and I really enjoyed the Glacier View Sea Kayaking excursion when our cruise ship stopped in Juneau. We saw many eagles and seals splashing near our kayaks. None of us had ever kayaked before but our guide, Sarah, explained everything we needed to know to feel comfortable on the water. Sarah was very knowledgeable about the area and made the trip very interesting. Our children are 10 and 14 years old and both enjoyed it. Even though there was light rain falling, we were provided with heavy rain gear that kept us warm and mostly dry. This is a great way to experience the wildlife and scenery of Juneau.
