What You Can Expect

Juneau Shore Excursion: Whale-Watching Cruise with Crab Lunch or Dinner

Spot whales from the comfort of your boat

No visit to Juneau is complete without spotting humpbacks and orcas in the beautiful waters of Alaska’s Inside Passage. From Juneau port, head to the Mt Roberts Tramway parking lot and board a coach bus that takes you to Auke Bay Harbor. En route, listen to informative commentary from your driver on the sights, and weather permitting, you might just see Mendenhall Glacier.

From Auke Bay, step aboard a jet boat or catamaran with spacious viewing decks and a heated cabin for your 2-hour cruise. Set sail into the Inside Passage, a coastal route filled with glaciers and fjords. Amid snowcapped mountains and fjords, enjoy sightings of sea lions, otters and bald eagles.

Once a whale is spotted, your captain slows down the boat and shuts off the motor. From May to September, keep watch for pods of whales, including calves that glide alongside their mothers. Catch them rolling along the water, and don’t be surprised if their curiosity brings them closer to your drifting boat.

Cruise past rocky outcrops dotted with harbor seals, sea lions and otters busy at work and play. You’ll return to your ship with plenty of amazing photos and video of wildlife.

Finish your Juneau shore excursion with a sumptuous crab lunch or dinner back in in downtown Juneau.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Great Day! We saw 14 whales feeding together and doing a bubble net to get their food. The weather definitely helped. It was sunshine and 67 degrees. The crew was fun and informative. The boat was easy to ride on and to take pictures from. We had the whale watch and crab feast so we went to the Twisted Fish Restaurant and had crab legs, clam chowder and a huge garlic roll. Amazing! The price of this combo was definitely worth it.

My whale watching tour was amazing! Loved Captain T and first mate Brendan. They were both so knowledgeable and very engaging. Our group of six, ages 12 to 75, all had a blast! Don and #39;t miss this tour.
Also, the Alaskan King crab lunch after the tour is delicious. drink and gratuity are extra.

This excursion was great. We saw not only humpback whales but Orca's as well. The crew and staff were very knowledgeable and open to questions and communication. The only reason we give it 4 stars instead of 5 was because the Crab Lunch/Dinner was not available and we were not made aware of that until the day of the excursion. Part of our money WAS refunded for that but it was still a disappointment.
