Departing downtown Juneau, you will be transferred on a scenic drive through the Mendenhall Valley to Auke Bay, approximately 30 minutes away. 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 cruise excursion captain and staff who will welcome you aboard and give you a quick safety orientation.

There is a fleet of boats used and based on the number of guests booked, you and only 17 other 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 whale-watching excursion crew, on board a custom-built, state-of-the-art aluminum-chambered boat. The excursion cabin cruiser offers a soft, enjoyable 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 who will tell you more about this magnificent area and its marine and wildlife. Enjoy light snacks and premium non-alcoholic beverages while you are cruising. The attention from the whale-watching cruise excursion crew and the smaller group size will make your experience even more memorable.

In addition to viewing whales, we always find a variety of other animals that can including seals, sea lions, bald eagles, porpoises, deer, and even an occasional bear or moose along the shore. Our experienced 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 your money will be completely refunded. Make the most of your short time in Juneau, on this personalized whale-watching excursion experience that you deserve. The total cruise time is approximately 3 hours.

Returning to the Juneau cruise dock, your transportation will be waiting to take you back to Juneau, approximately 30 minutes drive. Glacier view is weather permitting.

It was GREAT

Captain Mike and Jessica were great fun and knowledgeable and all around great tour guides. It was great having lots of room - not being packed with people. We had 10 people on a 16 person boat and it was PERFECT.

We loved our whale watching trip with Captain John. There were 4 in our group and there were 6 of us on the boat. Capt. John was wonderful, knowledgeable and knew where the whales were. We even got to see the Orcas which was really exciting. We saw the cruise ship excursion group, boat very crowded. This was so much better. We highly recommend this excursion, worth every penny. Thank you Captain John.

We were part of the Royal Princess cruise last month and have the opportunity to take this tour. From beginning to end was fantastic. This was a small and personalized tour, the crew was incredibly knowledgable and friendly. We spotted a lot beside the whales and orcas. Simply an excellent experience.

This was an amazing trip! Captain Ray and Nichole were awesome and gave us great views of whales. It was a small group, which made it easy to see the whales. We really got to see a little bit of everything. It was just awesome. I highly recommend this trip.

This was our favorite excursion during our one week cruise, our captain and the crew were great. They knew exactly were to take us in order to guarantee seeing whales, we saw seals as well. We saw bubble feeding and a couple of whales breeching too. If ever we go back to Alaska we will for sure take this excursion again... The prices are way less expensive with you than the ones offered by the cruise, thank you!

 HI ShoreExcursioneer, I booked you guys when I was in Roatan three weeks ago on May 14, to Tabayana Beach. As I was there a few years ago, I returned to the beach for a beautiful time. Your driver was on time, very personable and knowledgeable of the areas. In the future, I will try and book you guys wherever possible if available. Thanks for all your assistance.
