Description

Relax in the warm  cabin or outside on the upper covered deck as you cruise the deep fjords surrounding Juneau.  Learn firsthand about the behaviors and biology of the earth's largest mammal species. Our long personalized tours are the least expensive per hour on the water in Juneau. Our small yacht limits total passengers to less than a third those crammed on similar size commercial whale-watching water taxi.

This 4.5-hour expedition departs from your Juneau hotel or the cruise port, where you'll board a top-of-the-line cruising vessel that's steady through the deep waters of Saginaw Channel and Favorite Channel or Lynn Canal and Stephens Passage.

A typical whale-watching adventure cruise arrives in the vicinity of humpback whales within about 20–30 minutes after departing the dock. Your captain and crew maximize your time with the whales so that you can observe their natural behavior. These giants, eleven times the size of an elephant, will amaze you with their gracefulness and power.

Bring a warm jacket and take advantage of the upper observation deck or open deck aft. If conditions allow, an underwater hydrophone will be deployed to give you the opportunity to hear the humpbacks’ incredible 'singing.' En route and on scene your guide will explain whale behavior. In addition to viewing humpback whales, and occasionally orcas, you're likely to spot Steller sea lions and bald eagles.

Enhance this spectacular experience in America's Last Frontier with a snack of crackers with salmon spread, washed down with bottled water.
