We luckily watched Whale in the first batch. Not many boats were there around Whales. Unforgettable memories on Whale-watching and Mendenhall glacier. We took too long for these two trips and missed the city tour, which was fine to us. Great deal, great experience.

In addition to being less costly than the ones offered by Princess Cruises, the groups were smaller and thereby we received lots of attention from the tour operators. Would recommend your service to everyone. In fact, I have been doing that to every person I've been in contact with on this vacation.
Well informed guides who got us as up close and personal wtih the whales as legally possible. Nice new boat. Small tour group of about 12 of us.
Juneau Whale Watching was fabulous. Booking with Junea Tours Whale Watching made the trip. From seeing Orca's to having porpoises play in the boat wake was the best. Yes we saw Humpback whales, and bald eagles and seals and the "Jabba the Hut" big daddy seal. Everything was great. Glad we didn't book with the cruise, heard they didn't see what we saw!!! Only wish we did the whale watch before the Mendenhall Glaciar so we could have spent more time with the bears out on the Glacier and hiked out to the waterfall.
We got the opportunity to do everything we wanted. We saw lots of whales, we got to see the glacier and we had enough time to do the hike to nuggets falls. The only thing is that we had to wait 45 min to the shuttle taking us back to the city. The city tour guide dropped us off at the hatcheRy and p
Absolutely amazing!! There were about 5-6 whales entertaining us for at least an hour!! Once they came right up next to our boat - it was amazing!! Then we saw a bunch of sea lions sleeping on a bouy!! I would recommend this trip to anyone who has any doubts about seeing whales :-) Our naturalist was extremely knowledgeable and fun! The captain was a great navigator too.
it was the best tour in Alaska, everything was on time, organized and spectacular views ...thank you
Terrific time viewing whales! A young whale was waving its tail back and forth a lot, jumping and rolling and having a great time for about 15 minutes!! It was great. Mendenhall Glacier was cool to see with its blue tints. Town tour was also informative.
We saw a lot of whale activity that day. Captain was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Crew person was enthusiastic and friendly. Glacier visit and city tour were very enjoyable and informative.
This was an absolutely fabulous experience. Simin and Emily were more excited during the whale's bubble feeding episode than any of the guest travelers. They were very knowledgeable and fun to be with. One of our friends on the trip was celebrating her birthday on that very day, which made it all the more special! Thank you!, Thank you!, Thank you!! Experience of a lifetime and if we come back you will be first on our list!!!

Was a great tour! We saw both Orca and Humpback whales at the same time. Very rare! The glacier was beautiful. City tour was very interesting because we had a native for a tour guide. Overall great day!!
Exactly what was promised AND we saw whales! Bus driver and boat people were friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
The whale watch was definitely a highlight for our Alaska cruise. The captain(?) and his crew(Derek) were most informative and we saw lots of whale action. The snack was a nice touch.
The shuttles to and from the glacier were fine, didn't have to wait...
It was raining during the city tour, so that put a different spin in the ride. The driver was new, but admitted that he did not know answers to some of the questions,
In my wildest dreams, I could not have thought of a better trip. We saw 18 humpbacks bubble netting. Phenomenal! Then to top it off, two of them breached at the same time. Our guides were so excited they could hardly speak. I can't think of any two people (Simmin and Co.) better to share this experience with.
