Our tour on Septemeber 4th was about as perfect as any tour could have been. We had (thanks to Gobal Warming) the sunniest and driest fall day. The boats are fully enclosed so it wouldn't have been a big deal if it had been rainy as is typical at this that time of year but it sure did make being... More

I went on a while watching tour in July 14, 2015 during an Alaskan cruise. It was one of my favorite excursions! My aunt was interested in going but I thought it might be underwhelming but decided to go. There was a money back guarantee if we didn't see whales so I felt there was nothing to lose. For perspective... More

Wonder experience with 100% guarantee of seeing whales or your money back - we saw se real whales! Local skipper, local guides and local crew so they knew what they were talking about . Very friendly and informative. Worth every dollar.

A-MAZING. I know others their fans, but Cap'n Larry started whale watching in Juneau, and named most of the local whales. In my opinion, he is still the best captain and guide in the area. Access for my handicapped 90something Dad was very well organised, with a scooter provided. Orca Oddesea (I *think* that was the spelling) is a "yar"... More

Dolphin Tours were EXCELLENT! They were informative, polite and really enjoyed what they were doing. I am glad we booked our excursion with them instead of the cruise ship. Much more intimate experience and my children were able to see more because they were not fighting for a spot.

we saw both humpback and orcas. Staff was informative, fun, and extremely pleasant. We also saved money by booking with this company rather then through the cruise ship.

We had a great whale watching trip with Dolphin Jet Boat Tours. I was so glad we booked with an independent company rather than through the cruise line. Our guide was knowledgeable and we saw a lot of humpbacks and orca whales.

We took whale watch tour in Juneau on Sept. 13. Couldn't have asked for 2 nicer guides, (sorry I don't recall their names) Didn't see much of the whales, but it certainly was not because they didn't try. They were very mindful of the rules, and gave the whales their space. Boat was a great size, I think maybe there... More

We booked a whale watching & mendenhall glacier tour independently of the cruise shiip, it's much cheaper to go independant with this local company and you get on a smaller boat, with small group , great well informed guides . They can also steer the boat much closer to where they think the whales will appear. Reliable company
