Excellent tour guides and enjoyable whale watching experience. Too short of time at Mendenhall Glacier at just 1 hour. If you want to walk down to Nugget falls you will have to hurry as soon as you get off the bus and hurry back with little time to experience it.

Such a touristy thing to do. We saw the whales blow, and caught a glimpse of their tails. Basically what we had already caught sight of from our cruise ship! I would't recommend to any of my friends going in the future!

The crew was nice but very young. We did see a few whales. This was our third whale watching trip and it was the least impressive. It may have just been the day or inexperience of the crew.

When we first asked the shuttle women about meeting the tour guides they instructed us to wait with others for our tour guides to show up. We asked a Celebrity tour guide if they would mind calling the phone number for us since our phones were on the ship, she called and let us know that we should have been on the shuttle and gone into town to meet with the guide. The guide told us to hurry over and they would make sure that we were able to catch the Whale Watching even though we had missed the Mendendal Glacier from land part of the tour. She deducted $20 per person off of our bill to make up for this problem. The Whale watching was not disappointing. We saw two mother's and their calves. The calves were active while the mother's were more lathargic. It was a beautiful day and we were one of many boat's out on the water watching the same sight. So it didn't really matter who you booked with the same sights were seen by about everyone there. Read Less
