    Tour Overview

    Spend 2.5 hours in comfort aboard your spacious catamaran, sailing past the magnificent scenery of the Chilkat mountain range, searching for marine life. You will travel approximately 17 miles to the Point Adolphus area, one of Alaska's premier whale-watching sites, where you will catch sight of these incredible creatures.

    Relaxing in the warm, comfortable main cabin, your onboard naturalist will describe the diversity of marine life that congregates here each summer to feed in the nutrient-rich waters. You will learn about the behavior and habitat of the wildlife you may encounter, including humpback and killer whales, Steller sea lions, harbor seals and bald eagles.

    We guarantee you will see at least one whale or you receive a $100 cash refund as you disembark. Be sure to dress warmly so you can experience the sights and sounds of the magnificent mammals on the outdoor observation deck, and then enjoy the scenic journey back to port.
