We had such a good time on this excursion - and it was because of the people, specifically Alicia, Mike, Captain Olivia, and Tabby! We did this tour in August (sorry I'm slow to get the review done). From start to finish they made sure...More

Humpback whales were abundant and we witnessed a small whale jump out of the water next to our boat. Excellent Trip that is highly recommended. Having lunch on an island made the trip perfect. The ride to the excursion, we were able to take photos...More

Every time I've went out with Dolphin Jet Boat Tours it has been amazing, not only do you get a great show of whales but they never crowd the whales and shut the engines when whales approach the boats. Great fun and Great crews.

We actually took this tour in Sept., 2017 and it was quite informative. The guides know a lot about the whales and were able to identify many we encountered. It was interesting to know that the flukes are as individual as fingerprints.

This is a great excursion. You start off by taking a boat and seeing whales. The bus ride over to the marina was very entertaining as well. He even slowed down for us to take a picture of the glacier. The boat is a nice...More
