We had the great opportunity to see such an amazing sight. Our tour hosts showed us the beautiful scenery tell us terrific information. Humpback whales frolicking in the water. The baby was so active and to see him breach, flip and roll around was incredible. The team followed respectful distance allowing us to share without disturbing these amazing animals! Emily... More

Jason took us right to the action with several pods bubble net fishing. It was the experience of a lifetime. They even dropped the microphone into... More

We were so excited to have the opportunity to see mama humpback whales with their calfs. It is amazing the size of these beautiful creatures. I can still remember those tails slowly sinking in the ice cold water. Wish I was still there and could see them everyday!

My first choice for whale watching in Alaska is Juneau Whale Watch! I spent the summer of 2016 in Juneau and I took many of my trips on board Juneau whale watch boats - truly,... More

We had an amazing experience this summer during our alaskan cruise! Ben and Emma were awesome! We saw humpbacks but the best was the amazing view of the orcas!!! I would highly recommend this tour!

They truly love their jobs which made it even more fun to be on their tour. Highly recommend. This is the... More

I'm kind of a cheapskate, or at least I have a hard time parting with my money when I'm not sure what I might be getting, but I'm so happy I decided to do this tour! Luke and Greg went out of their way to make sure we not only saw a lot of wildlife, but got us as close... More

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
