    What to Expect
    Get ready for an exclusive Alaska experience! After pickup from your Juneau hotel, head to Auke Bay for an exciting whale-watching adventure. Every year, more than 65 humpback whales swarm Auke Bay during migration season. On this 3.5-hour sightseeing cruise, admire these beautiful creatures and get an in-depth insight on the surrounding marine life from your naturalist guide as you float around the bay. Additionally, you may be greeted with an extra treat -- bald eagles, harbor seals, porpoises and other sea creatures are known to frequent the area!

    The 48-passenger jet boat is built specifically for sightseeing. As you make your way around the bay, your captain will notify you when whales are spotted. Make sure to take advantage of the extra-large windows, complimentary binoculars and exterior observation deck for spectacular views!

    Whales are a passion of mine. I like to visit them in Juneau in the summer, and see the same whales off of Maui in the winter. We hit gold with the crew of Alaska Travel Adventures. Captain Alex and Naturalist Christine were great. He stayed away from packs of whale watching
