Pase la mañana o la tarde contemplando a las magníficas ballenas jorobadas en el pintoresco Auke Bay con las montañas de Alaska como telón de fondo. En esta aventura de avistamiento de ballenas desde Juneau, no solo podrá contemplar a estas gigantescas criaturas, también podrá admirar a los leones marinos, focas vitulinas, marsopas, águilas americanas, osos, ciervos y una variedad de aves. En un día despejado, ¡puede incluso ver el glaciar Mendenhall!
Peu à dire sur cette observation: 3 baleines dont 1 seule nous a montré une nageoire. Nous sommes restés sur notre faim malgré l'optimisme du personnel. Peut-être y avait-il quelques phoques dans les parages mais on ne nous en a pas parlé. Dommage!
We were picked up at a correct time from out ship and driven to the tour boat. On the way the driver told us many facts about this location and was very pleasant. The boat was fast and clean and the captain and his first mate did their best to find the whales for us and we got some great pictures. All in all I was very pleased but the tour and would do it again if in the area.
The tour itself was ok, the staff on the boat were very informative and upbeat. The "administrative end" of it emailed us the wrong time to show up so we missed the morning tour which I preferred the morning. They told us we didn't pay when we called in the 24 hours prior and we had paid. It was just a disaster from the start. I would not want to do this again.
We were fortunate to have a beautiful day in Juneau and a chance to be on the sea on a relatively calm day. The boat was a new high powered vessel that could get us quickly to sighting of whates before any other craft on the water that day. We saw many humpback whales, sea lions and eages on this tour. We had a great time and the salmon bake afterword was delicious. It is located next to a fast flowing creek with a beautiful view of a waterfall close by. All in all an exellent day in Juneau. Highly recommended!
