The trip was absolutely amazing…great weather. The captain and guide was informative. Orcas, and whales bubble feeding.


Loved our captain. He made the journey fun while looking for whales. We saw many and immensely enjoyed our time on the water.


Capt Louis, Georgia and Jack were amazing. And our tour narrator, Dale made our beautiful whale watching tout a wonderful experience.


Seeing so many whales! Seeing 10 at a time coming out of the water in a circle , I can’t remember what this is called but it was awesome!


Saw a number of whales including a mom and baby! Captain Charles and naturalist Emily were both knowledgeable and entertaining. With a small number on the boat, we all had great viewing spaces, and comfort inside when needed. Auke Bay is a beautiful place to spend hours watching for whales and other wildlife.


Charles and Dale were absolutely fantastic. They were very knowledgeable and entertaining. I did not expect to see as many humpbacks and we even saw an orca. Along with porpoises and seals, and eagles. I would highly recommend them. Such a good experience


Dalton ans Shey were amazing! We had a great time and learned so much about Whales and Alaska! I will definitely book through them again!


Saw tons of whales. It was the highlight of our trip. Even though the weather was rainy and chilly, captain Mike and naturalist Jessica were awesome. Would totally recommend and would go again in a heartbeat. Thank you

We had an incredible experience on our whale watching tour. The crew was friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about the wildlife and environment.

It was an unforgettable experience. In addition to the whales, we also saw sea lions. The crew was very good at spotting the wildlife and bringing us up close for a better look. The boat was comfortable and clean, and there was plenty of space to move around. There were also snacks and drinks available.
