We toured with Jake who was an amazing young person with intimate knowledge of the whales (he was able to identify them and name them by their tails. We were incredibly fortunate in that we also saw orca whales which are not often seen.

Response from serena h | Property representative |
Juneau is the BEST place to see whales! They might be able to fit both tours in, depending on how long their ship is in port. Otherwise Icy Straight Point offers whale watching - if they are going that way.

We offer a whale sighting guarantee on every trip! The whales are out there feeding basically 23 hours a day.

the boats are very stable and you will have the opportunity to go in deck or stay inside. I don't think anyone has ever been sea sick on these boats.
