Tour Overview

What you will visit:

Luxury Whale Watching Excursion:
This carefully curated private adventure for up to eight guests uses a luxury vessel with a U.S. Coast Guard Certified Master Captain and a marine naturalist onboard. Cruise the Inside Passage on an intimate four-hour voyage. The Inside Passage waters near Juneau support a very healthy humpback whale population. When whales are sighted, your captain will maneuver the boat to allow for exceptional viewing and photo opportunities. There are many whale-watching excursions, but this tour is defined by its luxurious appointments.

What you will see along the way:
A 25-minute scenic drive through Juneau brings you to Auke Bay. Board your luxury vessel and keep your eye out for other world-class wildlife like orca, bald eagles, harbor seals, stellar sea lions and even the occasional brown or black bear.

Photo Opportunity:
Have your camera handy as you cruise through the island-studded waters in search of humpbacks, orcas, sea lions, harbor seals and porpoises. On the return back to the ship, stop to snap photos of the world-famous Mendenhall Glacier (weather permitting).

Tuck into a charcuterie board with a selection of cured meats and cheese, various fruits and veggies served with water, sodas, Alaskan beer, wine or champagne.
