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!

I am a professional photographer specializing in photographing humpback whales. I have been on over 1,000 whale watching trips in Juneau, Alaska and Maui, Hawaii. My first choice for whale watching in Alaska is Juneau Whale Watch! I spent the summer of 2016 in Juneau and I took many of my trips on board Juneau whale watch boats - truly,... More

My husband and I went whale watching and it was incredible. We had the best view out of all the boats! We saw orcas and humpback whales! Our team was Dirk Brenden and Kelley and they were the best! They truly love their jobs which made it even more fun to be on their tour. Highly recommend. This is the... More

I'm kind of a cheapskate, or at least I have a hard time parting with my money when I'm not sure what I might be getting, but I'm so happy I decided to do this tour! Luke and Greg went out of their way to make sure we not only saw a lot of wildlife, but got us as close... More

This review is a long time in coming, for we went way back in May 2016. The memories however are still fresh in our heads like we went yesterday! We were in Juneau, rising from West Palm Beach FL. We saw both humpback whale and a pod of orcas, and it was an experience of a lifetime. Captain Steve and... More

Both boat captains went out of their way to ensure that we got to see many whale sightings--some were very close to the boats we were in. The crews were enthusiastic and you could tell that they really... More

This was a great tour. When our day in port was shortened by the cruise captain due to weather, we were accommodated on an earlier tour than the one we had booked. The tour guides were entertaining and informative, and included a naturalist who even knew some of the whales by name. They knew where the whales would be surfacing... More
