Patsi H

The whale watching excursion was wonderful! I learn some interesting information from our guide as we searched for the whales. Our driver knew just where to go to find the feeding whales. What a spectacular sight to see a whale come up out of the water and then dive back down! Loved the whole adventure!

what to expect

Begin your exciting port stopover in Juneau by meeting your guide at the Mt Roberts Tramway. From there, hop on a bus driven by your guide to to Auke Bay, where you’ll get on a jet boat and set out on Alaska’s waters on a 2-hour cruise.
The naturalist guide will narrate your journey across blue waters, as you brace your camera for photo-worthy moments like humpbacks breaching into the clear air, pods of killer whales searching for prey and Steller sea lions taking in the sun. Kick back with onboard refreshments, including soft drinks, water, coffee and hot chocolate. Refuel with a favorite local snack of wild-caught Alaskan salmon spread on a bagel.
Enjoy the views through the provided binoculars as the captain steers you up Favorite Channel, Stephens Passage, Lynn Canal and Saginaw Channel. Due to the growing whale population in Juneau, you’re guaranteed to see some action on these waters.
