You will meet your excursion transfer guide in downtown Juneau and drive for approximately 30-minutes out through the Mendenhall Valley to Auke Bay where you will find your whale watching shore excursion boat waiting for your wildlife cruise. Your cruise excursion captain and onboard naturalist will welcome you aboard The North Star, a state-of-the-art 48-passenger jet boat designed for Juneau whale watching excursions from inside or out on deck.
More than 60 humpback whales return from Hawaii to this Juneau Alaska area each season to feed in the nutrient-rich waters. Where some whale watching is done in miles of open ocean, this is a more enclosed area, which increases the possibilities of whale sightings. Your whale watching shore excursion captain is so experienced in knowing where to look that they guarantee whale sightings. In fact, if a whale is not spotted you will receive a $100 refund ($50 for children)! The cruise is approximately 2 hours in length.
The Gold Creek Alaska Salmon Bake is more than a meal. It is the ultimate Alaska experience with great food, live music, and fun activities like gold panning, marshmallow roasting, and a nature walk, set in a rain forest alongside Salmon Creek. Here you will dine on Alaskan-caught salmon grilled over an open alder wood fire. In addition, there is Parmesan chicken, cheesy au gratin potatoes, baked beans with reindeer sausage, wild-rice pilaf, corn bread, clam chowder, and other sides, salads and beverages and blueberry cake for dessert. Beer, wine and soda are available for purchase. If you do the salmon bake first, you will have approximately 90 minutes to eat and enjoy the location. If this is your last stop, transfer buses run regularly to take you back to your Juneau cruise ship pier when you are ready.
Please note: The sequence of this Juneau Whale Watching and Salmon Bake Excursion features may vary.
Lots of whales!
This is our 3rd cruise to Alaska, we took a similar tour before but we were told that " whale watching is not 100% guarantee and money is non refundable" decided to take a chance with this guys since the offer a money guarantee in case we don't get to see any whales; this time we were able to see not only whales but a bear and some eagles too! The food was beyond our expectations, fresh and delicious. The salmon we were eating was the catch of the day!
The tour people and captain really know what they're doing.
Happy customers & frequent cruisers... will book with you again!
