We came in on a cruise ship but elected to go with this company for whale watching. It was amazing to see such huge creatures up next to our smaller boat. The scenery while we were boating to the viewing area was jaw-dropping. A definite must do in Alaska.

We saw some quite a few whales and the salmon bake was delicious - August 2016. When you arrived at the salmon bake you were greated with a great cup of clam chowder and then moved on to the picnic area and buffet line for salads, chicken (if your not a salmon lover) and the best corn bread I ever...

Saw quite a few whales, but didn't get as close as I have on other trips. Also many sea lions and seals. Boat was small but big enough for the younger children to move around on.

Took this excursion during the first week of August, which must be prime time for whale watching. We saw 10 - 15 humpbacks "bubble feeding" (you can llook it up) not to mention an island beach full of sea lions. Both the captain of the catamaran and the young lady doing the narration were experienced, well informed and helpful. In... More

We had the great opportunity to see such an amazing sight. Our tour hosts showed us the beautiful scenery tell us terrific information. Humpback whales frolicking in the water. The baby was so active and to see him breach, flip and roll around was incredible. The team followed respectful distance allowing us to share without disturbing these amazing animals! Emily... More

We were so excited to have the opportunity to see mama humpback whales with their calfs. It is amazing the size of these beautiful creatures. I can still remember those tails slowly sinking in the ice cold water. Wish I was still there and could see them everyday!
