What a fun boat ride and driver knew exactly where to take us. He also yelled when he knew the whales tail would come up for our picture taking, just loved it. So exciting to see that many around us. Mendenhall Glacier was beautiful and loved the waterfall.
Captain Ken and Katie were wonderful, knowledgeable and friendly. Made us feel welcome right away and went out of their way to make sure we had the best tour possible. Definite recommend for an excursion in Juneau :)
We went on the Red Dolphin and Mike and Shell were amazing. We saw a young whale breaching several times and the trip was fantastic, even Mike and Shell were taking photos - so I know we were lucky to see this. Would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone wishing to see whales in the wild, doing what whales do!
Excellent excursion. Enjoyed every bit of it...the bus rides with informative and humorous drivers, whale-watching on the boat with the naturalist and boat driver, the snacks while on the boat, and the time allowed at Mendenhall Glacier.
We arranged this tour independly from the cruise ship and we were not disappointed. We were met at the parking area near the tram. Our boat captain and guide were awesome. We saw many whales and had one breach close to the boat. Would highly recommend this tour. Thanks again for making our visit to Juneau memorable.
Tour guide and boat captain were very entertaining and very knowledgeable saw many whales and sea lions.
Why pay cruise line excursion prices? I took this same tour with Princess ten years ago. This was the same tour with better guides than I remember...and much cheaper prices for what you'll pay Princess now.
Our tour was fantastic! Ali and Derrick were professional, engaging and made our trip extremely enjoyable. Their knowledge of the variety of whales we saw is extensive. Thank you, Dolphin Jet Boat tours!
Mendenhall Glacier is stunning!! Do not miss this!
Jet boat got us the whales quickly. Ally , who is an Oceanography student, was very nice and informative about the whales.
The glacier hadn't called for a few days, but that's nobody's fault. Red salmon in streams spawning (@ glacier.)
We loved it. Loved the whales and the glacier. Guides were very knowledgeable. Thank you
Speedy little boat with maybe 10 people but very comfortable. Driver and naturalist guide knew where the whales were and we saw lots of them doing whale like things....blowing water , swimming and diving. Enjoyed the trip.
Brilliant whale watching on AukeBay. Saw about eight whales but the best was when two whales swam under the boat, surfaced within a couple of yards and blew their spout. Not only did we see whales we smelled them! Not pleasant. Captain Derek and naturalist Ali were excellent, full of useful info and finding good sites. Glacier very good but just missed seeing bear catching salmon. Best trip in Alaska.
Very well organised. Taken by bus to the boat. Boat trip expert very knowledgeable. They knew from daily experience where to find the whales and other wildlife.We found humpback whales and quite a few too.Great. Pity we did not get longer at the glacier, only an hour. It would have been good if our wristband allowed us to use the local glacier bus. Very good excursion.
This was a wonderful activity for the first day in Juneau! The leader was very energetic and informative and showed all the excitement we felt at seeing whales in their natural environment. It was a bonus for us to see killer whales as well! I would recomment this tour to anyone I know....
