A fun boat ride out to see the whales. Guaranteed to see whales. We did see some spouts and tails. It was fun!
On your way to the boat harbor, listen to the informative commentary from your driver about Alaska's capitol city of Juneau. With the growing whale population feeding in the waters surrounding Stephens Passage, Lynn Canal, Saginaw Channel and Favorite Channel, there's a possibility of seeing whales lunge feeding, bubble-net feeding and breaching during the summer months. Your knowledgeable on board Naturalist will let you know what these terms mean as well as much more.
Aboard the custom 24- or 49-passenger whale-watching boats, enjoy a comfortable heated cabin with wide-viewing windows and spacious decks for wildlife viewing. When the captain spots the whales, the boat stops and you are free to walk about the deck while trying to capture that perfect whale shot. The on-board Naturalist is full of information about Alaska’s wildlife – humpback whales, sea lions, porpoise and bald eagles. After this two hour on-the-water delightful experience, you'll be transferred back to port.
