What You Can Expect

Juneau Shore Excursion: Whale-Watching Excursion

Whale Watching

Take advantage of your next port stop in Juneau and embark on a 2-hour whale-watching cruise. Board a bus to Auke Bay from the Mt Roberts Tramway. Upon arrival at the bay, step aboard a jet boat that accommodates a max of 30 passengers, meaning you’ll have space to enjoy unobstructed views. Thirsty or hungry? Soft drinks, water, hot chocolate and coffee are available, as well as snacks including locally caught Alaskan salmon spread on bagels.

Pick up some binoculars (provided), as your captain navigates the boat into Saginaw Channel, Stephens Passage, Favorite Channel and Lynn Canal. Thanks to the growing whale population in Juneau, rest assured you’ll see whales in these waters. Keep your eyes peeled for breaching whales, females with their young and pods on the search for prey. Your naturalist guide on board shares facts about the local geology and the wildlife you see, including bald eagles and seal lions.

At the end of the cruise, transport takes you back to the Mt Roberts Tramway.

We saw at least a dozen whales, breaching, bubble netting, and tail waving. Our guide, Sean, was the best.

Guide and captain were both very knowledgeable, and found a group of humpbacks which we trailed for a period of time before seeking and finding other whales, sea lions - even caught a glimpse of a bear onshore. Would recommend this crew for my next trip.

Had an excellent experience with the excursion. Would like to see more whales and orca,but the weather was not conducive to that the day we were there. That is something that the excursion people couldn't help. We did see a few whale and sea lions. There was even a baby whale who put off a little spout. The naturalist and the driver of the boat were very good. Would do again.

The excursion was exceptional. The captain was experienced and placed us in a perfect position to see a young whale completely leave the water on the leap called a breach. The mature mother slapped the water in delight and this was repeated a second time. Truly a life changing experience. Would highly recommend this team selected by Viator

On a fine day with whales breeching this would have been a fantastic tour. As it was it was a drizzly day and the whales were taking it easy. Saw a few tails and was so close to one could see down it's blow hole. The girls were very good at spotting and knew their subject well
