We booked our Whale Watching and Mendenhall Glacier Tour through Viator who chose Dolphin Tours and we were extremely pleased with the entire experience from making the booking to completing the tour. The weather was perfect, calm seas, blue skies and warm enough for shorts. The drive to the dock gave our driver a chance to give us some information on Juneau which was appreciated. On board the Jet Boat our young naturalist advised us that both he and our Captain were from Juneau before giving us a thorough and reassuring safety briefing, it was obvious that they really enjoyed what they were doing, and why not? It would be hard to become jaded in these beautiful surroundings. After a short ride we got the call "There she blows!" except it was "There they blow!". We saw lots of whales, up close and personal, before returning to the dock. It would have been a perfect day had it ended then but the encore was still to come! Mendenhall Glacier awaited us, we took the walk out to the Falls, a must do. Our driver back to our Ship was a real character who kept us laughing while passing on more interesting and useful information. This was one of those occasions which we all agreed will always be a cherished memory, with lots of photographic evidence to help us prove how close we came to these magnificent mammals in there natural habitat
