After pickup at your Juneau Alaska cruise ship terminal, a just 15-minute drive from downtown Juneau will bring you to the airport. Here, you will board your fixed-wing sightseeing aircraft for a 40-minute flight-seeing excursion over the magnificent Juneau Icefield, which covers more than 1500 square miles and contains over 140 named glaciers including Mendenhall and the larger Taku. Depending on the weather that day, your Juneau flightseeing cruise excursion pilot will set a course for the most scenic route. Almost all sightseeing flights include the most famous glacier in the area, mighty Mendenhall. Keep your camera handy as the incredible aerial views of ice constantly change and you may even spot a few glacial inhabitants!
You will also be transferred to Auke Bay for your whale watching cruise excursion. Unlike whale watching in the open ocean, the waters of Juneau Alaska are more restricted, which brings the whales closer together. Upon arrival, you will meet your whale watching excursion captain and staff who will welcome you aboard and give you a quick safety orientation.
There is a fleet of boats used and depending on how many guests are booked, you and only 17 other excursion guests (maximum) will then set out into Auke Bay, a protected waterway that is a summer feeding ground to humpback whales as well as other marine life. You will have the opportunity to view magnificent marine mammals in a scenic setting with a professional crew, onboard a custom-built, state-of-the-art aluminum-chambered whale watching boat. The cabin cruiser offers a soft, enjoyable whale watching ride, and is one of the safest boats in the industry. The cabin includes heating and a basic bathroom.
Take in the spectacular atmosphere of whales surfacing, with interpretation from our local naturalist shore excursion guide who will tell you more about this magnificent area and its marine and wildlife. Enjoy complimentary Alaskan snacks and premium non-alcoholic beverages while you are cruising. The attention from the crew and the smaller group size will make your Juneau Flightseeing and Whale Watching Excursion experience even more memorable.
In addition to viewing whales, we always find a variety of other animals that can include seals, sea lions, bald eagles, porpoise, deer, and even an occasional bear or moose along the shore. Our experienced Juneau shore excursion captains know these waters well, and have had a 100% viewing success rate over the past six years. We guarantee that you will see at least a whale or an orca or you will receive $100 per adult ($40 per child) back at the end of the tour. Make the most of your short time in Juneau, on this personalized experience that you deserve.
