This excursion was the highlight of our cruise. We saw humpback whales, doll porpoises, seals, and eagles. The crew (Ben and Jerry) were excellent with us and my children. My 10 year old daughter is big into nature and asked several questions to both crew members. They were very patient with them and answered all the questions. I would recommend this excursion and this particularly this crew to anyone who asks.

A trip with Ben and Jerry

Ben and Jerry were our tour guides. Jerry's shared his knowledge of whales behavior and it was nice to understand prior to searching for whales. We did see a few Orcas, but the Humpback were elusive. However we did see a few water spouts and the tail of one. There were too many boat tours on that day. Overall our guides did their best!

We saw multiple whales!

We were the first tour out for the season so I was skeptical on whether or not we would see any whales. We saw at least 4 or 5! Though, none breached - we got great views of blow holes, tails and a great experience!

5 stars to Jon and Emma. Jon is an experienced captain and Emma is a jewel! We boarded a vessel with room for 15 or so passengers and were rewarded with so much. Both are native Alaskans and afforded us all with interesting stories and facts of culture. We were so happy to see so many whales! We had hoped to see a few, but instead had loads of sightings and so lucky for us, even a group of Orcas. We encourage "cruisers" to look at the websites of the locals as this is where the true spirit of the North lies. We had a fantastic trip and thank Jon & Emma both for a trip of a lifetime.

Whale watching Juneau Alaska

Had an absolutely terrific time with Capt John & crew on our recent whale watching tour in Juneau. Everything was first class from start to end. Our boat was small and comfortable with about 10 other people on board. We got to see 15 to twenty humpback whales...even got to see some breaching. Capt John and his narrator were very informative & respectful of these gentle giants in their environment. I would not hesitate to recommend Juneau Tours for a truly memorable experience in Juneau.

Emma(Narrator) and Jon(Captain) were excellent guides. Saw many humpback whales and also saw some Orcas. Well set up and organised. Much better than being on the big boats hired by the cruise ships. Much more personal and better views. Not a single thing to complain about but top notch in all aspects. Would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone. Would use them again if we return
