This review is a long time in coming, for we went way back in May 2016. The memories however are still fresh in our heads like we went yesterday! We were in Juneau, rising from West Palm Beach FL. We saw both humpback whale and a pod of orcas, and it was an experience of a lifetime. Captain Steve and... More

The boats used were fully equipped state-of-the-art boats. They were very fast and got us to where the whales were feeding quickly. Both boat captains went out of their way to ensure that we got to see many whale sightings--some were very close to the boats we were in. The crews were enthusiastic and you could tell that they really... More

This was a great tour. When our day in port was shortened by the cruise captain due to weather, we were accommodated on an earlier tour than the one we had booked. The tour guides were entertaining and informative, and included a naturalist who even knew some of the whales by name. They knew where the whales would be surfacing... More

We were on a cruise but as I researched this company on Trip Advisor, I had no hesitation with purchasing our tickets at the booth set up at the cruise port. The bus picks you up at the cruise port and it is short, interesting ride out of town to the dock. Our driver gave a very interesting commentary on... More

Where: Juneau. When: late June, 2016. I've been on a number of whale watching tours - and good one, but never, ever the experience I had with this incredible group who took us out on with this company. We had the absolute pleasure of being guided, entertained, and pampered by Captain Jason, Brenden, and Amanda. Words can't describe the joy... More

We were hoping to see whales and we did! Humpback whales were out and about...and then the orcas came out. What an experience to see them up close. The size of the boat was perfect as it only held like 16 people. The tour guide was very informative. We also saw about a half dozen eagles just sitting on the... More

You must use this tour provider! Jason and Emily have such a passion for their home area and what it has to offer. We were taken to a variety of whale feeding sites and the animals came very close to the boat. This is the only such outing I have been on where the host staff came around the boat... More

While we were simply hoping for a Humpback whale sighting, our expectations were far exceeded when we saw several Humpbacks feeding and diving at several locations on our outing. The ship was very clean and comfortable and the crew extrodianarilly knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant. The free snack was very tasty , and the whole experience was a real highlight to... More

Captain Ben and Emily were awesome! Made the day so much fun and answered all of our questions. Emily was very sweet and her excitement for the whales was contagious. We really enjoyed our day, and it was our favorite activity of our entire trip!
