Amazing experience

We had a wonderful time on this excursion. The only complaint was that the bus picking us up at Mendenhall Glacier was about 20 minutes late and it would have been nice to have used that time continuing to explore the park.

We had a great time on this excursion. Lauren, Kenny, and Hannah were enthusiastic and knowledgeable for the whale watching portion. Whale came up 10 feet from the back of the boat. It was amazing. Bus driver was polite and knowledgeable on the glacier portion. Not really enough time for the glacier portion, so you have to hustle to get as much time as you can at the glacier. Great excursion for the price.

The crew was knowledgeable about the different whales and had a book to help identify the ones we saw. I like that the tour doesn't crowd or cut off the whale's path, but runs parallel to them. The crew seemed to sincerely love what they do and are just as excited to see the whales as we were.

Capt. Rich and crew were awesome. Best whale watching was between Shelter & Admiralty Islands. Whales put on quite a show - especially Sasha & Flame!

Excellent times!! Even saw a pod of Orcas!! I’d say the whale watching was the highlight. Although the whales did jump out of the water we did see many and even a few flanks. Great memories were made.

OMG!!!! This was the MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE FOR MY HUSBAND AND I!!! We saw ORCA’s and Humpback Whales! We stopped counting after the first 10!!! ALASKA TALES WAS AWESOME!!!! Rich at the helm and Sarah and Libby, the Naturalists on the Tour were soooooo Knowledgeable and informative!!! They knew behavior, characteristics, personality their affinity to humans.....I can go on and on!!! They knew exactly where to stop in the water along with the other boats to get that perfect photo!!! We even had an Orca literally jump out of the water within 10 feet of our boat! I’ve never in my life probably will never be that close to such a majestic animal!!!! Completely blown away by the experience and will never ever forget it!!!! We did see the Glacier and water falls which was also spectacular and heartbreaking at the same time that Climate change has taken such a toll on these landforms. We don’t know what generations to come will have left to appreciate. I’m thankful we were able to get a glimpse.

Amazing Whale Experience

Truly enjoyed our up close and personal experience with the humpback whales. Our all female crew did an outstanding job of finding the whales without any other boats near and turning off the engine so we could hear their breathing and experience the whales without any distractions. Glacier was beautiful also! Whale experience is incredible!!
