Took the half-day trip to the glacier with Ron L in his very new jet boat. Really really nice. Lots of information. Spectacular scenery. Lots of time spent slowly plowing through fields of icebergs and floating about 1/4 mile from the face (Ron pointed out that closer would not be safe and indeed we saw a major calving event that...

My dad and I took the half day trip to the LeConte Glacier. The boat was solid, the ride was comfortable, and the captain was very knowledgeable of the area. It was a great experience.

Yes, we saw lots of whales, however, the owner/captain could not have been worse. Felt like he was forced to be there and acted like the excursion was a bother and total bore. He never shared any info so we learned nothing. He would answer a question if I asked but it was like pulling teeth. I would not recommend... More

Disappointed Based on previous reviews, I guess I had high expectations, but was disappointed instead. Yes, the weather was bad, but we saw lots of whales anyway. My issue was with the captain. First, he showed up late with no apology or explanation. After a lackluster safety briefing we headed out. While we were spotting whales, he was writing in... More

Went on a tour with Captain Ron today. We saw lots of whales, sea lions, ice bergs. It was a great day. Ron was great at finding whales and he would slowly approach the whales, stop the engines, and drift while we got to listen and see the whales all around us. He answered all our questions and was great... More

I thouroughly enjoyed this trip. I was hoping was for some whale sightings but was told they didnt show up til late june, july. Would do it again in... More

We went out on two whole day tours to whale watch with Whale Song Cruises and had an outstanding time. The trip was perfect in each and every way. Capt. Ron was very knowledgeable about whales. We did not know which direction to look one day as there were whales all around us. We took some awesome breaching photos. We... More

My friends and myself took a tour out to see the glacier and it was fantastic. We had a leisurely trip out to the glacier and at the time seal/seal lions had their babies out on the glacier ice - we didn't bother them but slowed down to see them. We also got out to the face of the glacier... More
