Absolutely loved the whale watching portion of this tour. Pods of whales so close our friends got sprayed!! The captain and crew were true professionals. Not sure we would repeat the glacier visit as we were headed to Glacier Bay.

We enjoyed this trip although there was a mix-up at first with the number of passengers that were scheduled to ride our boat. We enjoyed seeing the humpback whales and sea lions and having the opportunity to take pictures, as well as see the surrounding sights. We also appreciated the snacks offered on board.

This your was amazing! We saw several whales and even a baby playing in the water. The glacier was beautiful. All of the guides on this tour were knowledgeable and seemed to love their jobs. The naturalists onboard the whale watching portion were almost as excited to see whales as we were.

We were so impressed with this tour. The captain and crew were the best we have experienced with any tour we have every taking. They went the extra mile to ensure that the passengers had the experience of a lifetime. We would recommend the "Dolphin" tours to anyone who would be considering this tour in the future. We would definitely book with them again and our experience with Viator was great, too.

Great trip. Equipment was very nice, crew made both the whale watching and the glacier trip enjoyable. Took this trip as opposed to the cruise ship recommendations and we were very pleased. Great value.

Loved it! Friendly knowledgeable staff. We sailed on the Norwegian Pearl. The shuttle for the ship to the center of town was a few minutes and free. The tour staff were out in front of the tramway station. Easy to find and set us right up with getting our tour underway. Bus driver, Teresita was very friendly and knowledgeable about that area. I felt like the time frames for both the whale watching and Mendenhall Glacier was sufficient for us. We didn't do any hiking tho. Mendenhall Glacier area is beautiful. The only negative thing in my book about the tour was that the bus was a little smelly. Snacks onboard the excursion was a nice touch. While it was a whale watching tour Patrick and the boat driver took us up to see an island that had 100's of sea lions. We also saw bald eagles. Yeah, great value, great guides, great trip, great experience!

this excursion was the highlight of our cruise. Lots of humpback whales and dolphins. Mendenhall Glacier was flooding which was a disappointment but no ones fault. significant savings were had versus booking this excursion with the cruise lines

It was great we were lucky to see about 10 whales bubble net fishing but we were disappointed when we started back to the dock we could have stayed out there for a couple of hours just watching them. Then we went to see seals and then off to the Glacier. On the plus side seeing the Mendenhall Glacier and "a porcupine up a tree" around the site was great. The commentary by the staff aboard the ship was great, the staff very friendly and helpful .

AMAZING tour!! Saw many humpback whales right away and even saw them feeding!! Great once-in-a-lifetime experience. Guide was great and very knowledgeable. It was great to have time on our own at the glacier. The trail to Nugget Falls was closed :( due to flooding but the view was spectacular. Highly suggest going whale watching first and then the glaciers after because of dense fog in the morning. The tour before us couldn't see the glacier in the morning and there was less whale activity in the afternoon.
