Juneau Juneau  
  Whale Watching Adventure
Thar she Blows!

Join us on an exciting cruise exploring the waters around Juneau, surrounded by magnificent scenery, in search of humpback and orca whales. You'll see other marine mammals including Steller sea lions, harbor seals, Dall's porpoises as well as bald eagles, bears, Sitka blacktail deer and a variety of seabirds.

Your whale watching adventure begins with a narrated transfer from the pier to Auke Bay. There your captain and onboard naturalist will welcome you aboard the North Star, our state of the art 48-passenger jet boat custom designed for Juneau whale watching with large windows, an outside viewing deck and an amplified hydrophone system for listening to whales communicate under water. On clear days you'll have a beautiful view of the Mendenhall Glacier as your sightseeing vessel departs the dock.

Juneau has a healthy humpback whale population with some 65 whales returning each season to feed in the nutrient-rich waters and your captain is well versed in locating them. In fact, whale sightings are guaranteed! If a whale is not spotted during your cruise we'll refund you $100 ($50 for children). Your captain will let you know when whales are spotted, but it's more likely you'll first be alerted by the collective chorus of "Oohhs!" and "Awwhhs!" from your fellow adventurers as they witness a giant humpback suddenly breach. You may see other marine mammals including Steller sea lions, harbor seals, Dall's porpoises as well as bald eagles, bears, Sitka blacktail deer and a variety of seabirds.

Binoculars are available for your use onboard. Venture out on the deck to enjoy a panoramic view of your surroundings or to snap a photo. Or, settle into your warm and comfortable interior surroundings to enjoy the scenery and wildlife sightings through the oversized windows.

Your vessel returns to the Auke Bay dock at the conclusion of your cruise where you will transfer back to the pier filled with lasting memories of your whale watching adventure and hopefully many pictures as well.

Tour Includes: Whale watching cruise with onboard naturalist; state of the art 48-passenger jet boat custom designed for Juneau whale watching with large windows, outside viewing deck and an amplified hydrophone system for listening to whales communicate under water, binoculars are available, round-trip transfers from the pier.

Customer Reviews:
We couldn't have asked for a better day! A little rain but it only added to the excitement. We were able to see eagles, seals and lots of whales! We had a group of 7 feeding right next to us. The guides were great, full of knowledge and experience as was the captain who kept us out a bit longer since the whale watching was so spectacular. We signed up for this at the last minute because I never thought I would enjoy whale watching but it became one of the best experiences of our vacation. ~ Trip Advisor Review
