Cortney, charity, captain Rd were great and put us on whales. Excellent trip. The boat was great and safe.
Amazing and unforgettable!

Captain Dan, Charity and Russell were great. We got to see so many whales, and our kids loved it - lots of oohs and ahhhs for sure. My son can’t stop talking about the whale breaching - what a treat! And not to forget - the drive over in Papa Bear’s den was fun and informative. Thank you for a great once in a lifetime experience. I had a hard time choosing who to book through as there are a lot of companies to sift through, and I chose this one based on reviews, price, small snack provision and boat description - and was not disappointed.

7 Whale Surprise!
, Aug 2019
I booked this tour thru Viator after researching a bunch of whale tour operators available in Juneau. I decided to sign up for this tour as their 11am tour time coincided with my agenda from the Ruby Princess cruise I was on. We ended up going a bit over time due to the unexpected, yet very amazing opportunity to have seen seven whales (moms and calves) in one tour. They just popped up everywhere, it was truly great to see all of them spouting and diving at different times throughout. The group got very involved with figuring out what the names of the whales were based on their tail markings (I think we kept seeing Ember!). Shout out to naturalist Charlotte Bond for her informative and fun narration of the whole experience. Charlotte delivered exceptional customer service with my situation, in which I was running late to get to another tour scheduled at 2:30pm. Charlotte contacted the ABAK tour company, called me an Uber, and made sure I made it to ABAK 's warehouse for my afternoon tour. I am grateful for her taking care of me while running the tour, as this was far beyond what I expected. Thanks again Charlotte!!!

great excursion for our family. The captain was great and the ride was smooth the entire time. The naturalist explained about the whales and answered all of my teens questions.
