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!
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.
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.
Tour guide and boat captain were very entertaining and very knowledgeable saw many whales and sea lions.
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.
We loved it. Loved the whales and the glacier. Guides were very knowledgeable. Thank you
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.)
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.
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.
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....
This was the BEST .Great tour guides and the weather was superb. We saw 7 whales breaching and diving back in their habitat waving their tails good bye. It was just like it was staged!
Weather a bit of rain, than sunshine..and can you belive after a "Rainbow.".wow it looked just like it was ending in front of our boat.
We lovrd it!
A must tour to book!
Both the Captain and the Tour guide were both excellent on the boat portion. The Glacier Tour was made very interesting by a very knowledgeable driver who also served as Tour Guide. He went above and beyond to make our experience most enjoyable.
Excellent naturalist aboard and a comfortable way to whale watch!! saw lots of them (at least, lots of spouting and a few iconic "tails" as they breeched). Enjoyable trip well worth it.
One of the most spectacular sights was to see the humpbacks make their bubble net. At Mendenhall Glacier was able to see Bear and Bear Cub. Waterfall was spectacular.
Very good trip! Very lucky to have seen five in one pod for most of the tour. Our guides were great!
Very knowledgable and made the trip very enjoyable. Thanks for providing such great weather as well!
This was a great tour and Allie and Captain Derrick were wonderful tour guides! Even though it was misting rain and a foggy day, our spirits were lifted when we got to see the beautiful humpback whales and their babies put on a show for us. Also saw Stellar Sea lions and highly recommend this trip!
Our tour guides Ally and Captain Derrick were awesome. They were very knowledgeable about whale behavior and our boat had a fun time trying to spot the whales in the water. We were fortunate enough to encounter both a humpback whale and a pod of Orcas, which included a baby. Would highly recommend this tour.
We saw plenty of whales and the crew did a good job of explaining habits and traits.
Would highly recommend this excursion.
