We chose the small trip of six, but there were only two more and the Capt.on that trip. We had tons of room to move around to see everything. The other two people were really nice and we had a great time so much fun sharing the experience. Capt Liz asked if we were related. She gave us other information... More

We had the most fantastic day out with Captain Liz. We saw loads of Humpback Whales and she was so knowledgeable about them, giving us lots of facts and figures. I would 100% recommend a trip with Harv and Marv. Thanks for a great day.

With so many whale watching trips available I did a lot of research and ended up booking this trip. Captain Liz was amazing with so much knowledge and stories to tell. We found lots of whales including a mother and calf. I was one of 6 in our boat so moving around was very easy. My friends had booked a... More

We loved our time on the water with Captain Liz. She was so wonderful! We did the whale watch tour with only 6 people and would never do it any other way. The boat was named the OB1. Liz was so informative, friendly, down to earth, patient, kind and funny! She was able to find whale after whale and even... More

We researched whale watching excursion opportunities in Juneau and kept seeing Harv and Marv's coming up as the go to company to book with. We learned that their reputation was well warranted. We went out on a twelve passenger boat with a captain and an interpreter. While whale watching excursions do not typically include orca viewing, our first stop was... More

We had heard of Harv and Marv's through Cruise Critic, so booked in advance. The trip wasn't offered through our cruise line. Harv and Marv's picked six of us up at the port and took us by a small motor coach (not a bus - more like the rental car shuttle at the airport) through Juneau, past the Mendenhall Glacier.... More

We had heard "word of mouth" about how fantastic Harv and Marv whale was in Alaska. The exceeded our expectations. Our guide talked to us about the environment and the wildlife around Juneau. We saw multiple whales, Seal Lions and Eagles. This is one fantastic adventure. You need to chose them for your next Alaskan Adventure!!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Harv and Marv's throughout the entire process. It began five years ago when we had to cancel our trip at the last minute and received a full refund without any hassles. This time, five years later, the reservation process went smoothly, with the representative offering helpful guidance as to which boat... More
