When we were there in 2006 we meet some people that had just come back from one of their tours and were raving about them...so much so that I wrote down their name for future reference.

Good Luck

Hi - we're just back & went with Capt. Jack of the Scania. He limits the number of passengers to ensure ample seating & comfort for everyone. He is a former coast guard officer & has triple safety features. There are a number of charter operators who cooperate, referring customers to each other. They have an association that enforces ethical standards & requires 5 years experience in local waters. Besides Capt. Jack, I know of Harv & Marv & Orca Enterprises.

WE had a great time with Capt. Jack & saw a lot of wildlife including a juvenile whale who put on quite a show for us - flips, breaching, barrel rolls, and fluke waving.

Orca, Dolphin, Scania and Kaytos all operate what I've been referring to as "medium" sized tours. On Orca and Dolphin's tours, everyone gets a seat, and if the boat is crowded (near capacity) not everyone will get standing room or space on the outside viewing deck. Kaytos and Scania are almost the opposite... everyone can have the outside viewing space, but if the boat is crowded, not everyone will get a seat... Then again, most days whale watching near Juneau, you won't want to be sitting inside anyway...

Happy Alaska Travels!
