What You Can Expect

Juneau Whale Watching Adventure and Mendenhall Glacier Tour

Juneau Whale Watching Adventure with Optional Mendenahall Glacier Tour

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Good experience. Watched at least five whales for over an hour bubble net feeding. Crew was great. Would do this again in a heart beat. Gwen and paul sullivan. July 5 2014.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Jessica and Captain Derrick of our tour were the best! We not only got to see whales, but we saw 7 whales together doing what our captain said was bubble-netting. The whales swim together, dive, eat, and blow water. I took around 50 pictures of just these whales. What a sight to see. Mendenhall glacier was absolutely beautiful and they gave us around 1 hour to see this sight. I wish we would have gone straight to the falls as this is around a 45 minute walk. Everyone who did it said it was beautiful. But we still saw the falls from a distance. FYI - this tour is cheaper than the cruise, plus you see more. I highly recommend it.
