    Thanks to the captain (Rich) and crew (Danielle & Hannah), we had excellent humpback viewings. The boat was very comfortable for viewing the whales from either outside or inside. Plus, we got snacks!

    We included this excursion in our day in Juneau. The crew of Capt. Rich, Hannah, and Libby were very knowledgeable and we had 8-10 whale sightings. It is an up close and personal tour of these great sea creatures.

    We really enjoyed this whale watching cruise. Captain Aaron and Sarah were the best! We managed to see humpback whales, orcas, and dolphins. And there was plenty of viewing space for everyone.

    Private excursions with friends. I had used this tour operator two years prior and still was impressed. The boat was brand new! Lots of whales seen. My friends and I were very satisfied. There is a small bathroom if needed.
