The captain and naturalists will take you on a search for whales in Favorite Channel, Stephens Passage, Lynn Canal or Saginaw Channel. Binoculars are provided for your added viewing pleasure.
However the highlight of this Whale Watching Adventure is seeing the humpback whales which are feeding in the nutrient rich Alaskan waters. Once a whale is spotted your captain will slow down to allow you outside on the viewing decks for excellent picture opportunities and an up close experience. In addition, hydrophones may be lowered into the water to allow you to hear the whales communicate with each other.
Each boat is fully enclosed and heated with a marine restroom on board and capacity is kept to under 50 passengers per boat. The small groups create a great environment for wildlife viewing in the great Alaskan outdoors. Your captain is specifically trained to follow federal viewing guidelines from a safe distance..
After, you can experience the amazing Mendenhall Glacier. The glacier is located in the center of the Mendenhall Valley, which is located between Downtown Juneau and Auke Bay. You will have approximately 45 to 60 minutes near Mendenhall Glacier where you may enjoy the scenery or take a stroll on one of the numerous trails. While you visit the glacier you may take photos and searching for different types of wildlife.
Whale Sightings guaranteed! If no whale is sighted on the tour, you will be given a refund of $100.00 per adult/$50.00 per child.
Please note: You will not physically stand on the glacier. You will be approximately 1 mile (1.6km) away.
