Icy Strait
Whale Watching Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Bad weather this day, so not a pleasant ride. The boat is large and comfortable. Binoculars provided. The crew worked really hard to make it a good experience, but rough seas and rain worked against them. Only one brief whale sighting. This wasn't the crew's fault. Just bad luck.

Amazing experience. Only 8 folks on-board, but the jet boat could have held more. 15 minute drive to the marina, so saw a little more of town. The crew was enthusiastic and worked hard to share Juneau and the whales. Weather was cold, but they happily stayed topside when someone wanted to go up there. Saw lots of whales including one that jumped.

This was my second time flying over Misty Fjords with Island Wings. Amazing views and experience. 5 minute ride to plane with convenient pick up. Words can't describe the beauty. The pilot, Michelle, pointed out lots of great sights. We landed and walked on shore for awhile--an exclusive feature for this company. Standing in the silence of the fjord looking at the snow-covered mountains was fabulous.
