Pricey but the crew found whales and took us on an extra special ride to see an island loaded with sea lions. The captain didn't see the wake from another boat at one point and our boat was slammed down violently bruising my wife's arm that was resting on the windowsill but it was an accident. The salmon bake following could have been skipped. Food was lousy and venue very generic and lackluster. From now on, we return to the ship to eat real food and save bunches of money. Read Less

We booked this through the ship.
We booked this through the ship. It was nice, but I felt the boat was a bit big for whale watching. A smaller boat would have been better for getting to the whales faster when we had spotted them in the distance.

We took the Discover Alaska Whales tour. This was a small group tour of only nine people plus Mindy, our fantastic guide, and Captain James. The boat was a scientific research vessel, so not only just a whale watching trip, it also taught us a lot about the other water life in the area . This is a guaranteed money back tour if no Whales are spotted. However we spotted Whales very quickly and Captain James took us to an area where we were lucky enough to see five Wales which included two babies and they came so close to the boat. We took some fantastic video footage and photographs of these amazing creatures. Amazingly we also saw some orca killer whales very close to the boat. This excursion was the highlight of our holiday and we will never see Whales so close again in our entire lives. On our way we did stop to look at a crab pot they had put in the water to scientifically investigate if a particular crab was in the area. This proved to be an interesting and very brief part of the tour. We would highly recommend this tour as a small intimate and Informative excursion. Thanks to Mindy and Captain James for making this a once in a lifetime experience. Read Less

We were lucky to see orcas and humpback whales. The orcas are not seen on a regular basis- every 2-3 weeks, so we were lucky that day.
