The peaceful glow of an Alaskan summer night is the perfect backdrop for this exceptional whale-watching adventure complete with a buffet featuring locally sourced cuisine. Southeast Alaska's marine animals join the party as you cruise the waters, renowned as a summer feeding ground for humpback and killer whales. Following a short motorcoach ride to beautiful Auke Bay, board a water jet-powered expedition vessel specially designed for Alaskan waters and wildlife viewing. As you cruise, an onboard naturalist will explain the habits and habitats of the wildlife you may encounter. Enjoy a buffet dinner complete with dessert and beverage. When a whale is spotted your captain will maneuver the boat for optimal viewing and photo opportunities. If you do not see a whale, you will receive a $100.00 cash refund when you disembark the tour vessel, but don't expect it, as whales have been spotted on every tour for the past 15 years!
