You probably know by now that whale watching is one of the top activities in Juneau! What better way to experience these magnificent whales than with an exclusive Private Whale Watching tour meant just for your small group? Escape the crowds on this extra special 4-hour experience, exploring the calm waters of Juneau for a scenic & spectacular day!

This wildlife experience takes you right from the cruise docks on a trip out to the scenic Andrew's Marina at Fisherman's Bend. Keep an eye out on the drive... wildlife viewing doesn’t just begin at the boat! As you depart the dock, your friendly local guides will set out immediately in search of the humpback whales. Because they've been tracking these animals for nearly two decades, you'll want to follow their gaze. You’ll explore the pristine waters of Juneau for 3 hours in search of Humpbacks & Orcas, as well as other wildlife including eagles, seals, porpoises and more. With a maximum of 6 people on this tour, you’ll have all the time to ask your naturalist guide about the ecosystems of the area & life in Alaska.

Along the way, you’ll experience what makes this Private Whale Watching tour truly unique among Juneau's whale watching tours: a remote beach landing! You’ll have the opportunity to depart the boat, stretch your legs, and explore the rugged shorelines. Your guide will talk you through the local flora and fauna as you explore the coast. If you're lucky, they'll even spot some starfish and stunning seashells hidden along the way. Then, it’s back in the boat for a refreshing snack and your return trip to Andrew's Marina. Be sure to break out the binoculars provided on board to check the seas for more wildlife, or venture out onto the open deck for unrestricted viewing.
