We had a great time on this excursion. The Captain made sure to do his best to find whales for us. We found a couple but they weren’t very active and he could have easily just sat there waiting for them to surface more but he moved areas until we found a lot more whales who were much more active. The Naturalist on board did a great job answering any questions we had and giving us some general info about the whales we saw

Trip was amazing seen whales in abundance and close up. Skipper and Naturalist on board as well as bus driver transporting us to the boat went and above beyond to ensure we had a great trip. This was truly a bucket list experience. Highly recommend.

We saw lots of humpback wales. The skipper and naturalist on board were wonderful. The bus driver out to the harbor was a character. I believe we picked up COVID somewhere on this day though. That made for a lot of unpleasant times after.

This was a excellent excursion. You will see whales . We love this experience and it is a must see, must do.

Excellent day in Juneau! We saw eagles, whales and seals in Auke Bay. Guides and driver were great
