What You Can Expect

Sitka Whale-Watching and Marine Life Tour

Sitka Whale Watching Tour

You’ll meet your boat tour at the Sitka cruise ship dock and board the 26-foot (8-m) Glacier Bay catamaran. The boat is designed for a smooth ride through southeast Alaska’s narrow island passages and bays. Hop on board and explore the warm, comfortable cabin with large windows and a spacious deck, both areas offer spectacular vantage points for observing wildlife. The captain takes only six people per tour in order to make the 2-hour trip as comfortable and informative as possible.

Your captain will take you out to spot humpback whales, gray whales, porpoises, sea otters, sea lions, seals, and more than 280 species of birds that live in this wildlife rich area of the Pacific Ocean. Each tour is customized for the best wildlife viewing for the time of your visit.

Sea and weather conditions will determine the itinerary for the day and the captain will try to customize the tour to your personal preferences. Glimpse whales feeding on herring, otters lounging in the kelp, sea lions barking, or possibly even a bear patrolling the beach. You’ll get lots of opportunities to experience the majestic beauty of Sitka and take great photos.

After a 2-hour marine wildlife tour, you’ll be returned to the dock to end your tour.
