Experience southeast Alaska's incredible scenery and amazing wildlife on this exceptional whale-watching excursion with a "money-back" sighting guarantee (June through August) that is available rain or shine. Following a short motorcoach ride to Auke Bay, board a water jet-powered catamaran designed for wildlife viewing. The spacious main cabin welcomes you and offers panoramic views of the spectacular scenery. An onboard naturalist will explain the habits and habitats of the wildlife you may encounter. Have your camera ready when you spot Steller sea lions, harbor seals, Dall's porpoises, bald eagles, Sitka blacktail deer and, occasionally, bears. Of course no whale-watching tour would be complete without seeing the majestic mammals so plentiful in the nutrient-rich Alaskan waters.

Special Notes:

The content of this tour is identical to JNU-610. Only guests using a wheelchair can book this tour, as it ensures accessible transportation. Due to the specialized nature of some lift-equipped vehicles, priority is given to guests using a wheelchair and one companion only; additional companions may be required to travel on the transportation provided for tour JNU-610. Bookings not marked with an accessibility requirement will be removed from the tour's inventory.

This tour can accommodate mobility devices with minimum ground clearance of 3.5 inches. The lift on the vehicle can accommodate a maximum weight of 600 lbs., maximum length of 48 inches and maximum width of 32 inches. Passengers with disabilities must contact the onboard Tour Office at least 48 hours prior to the excursion to ensure arrangements can be made to meet their particular needs. Please be sure to read the "Accessible Cruising" information on the home page of Princess.com.

The operator of this tour guarantees that a whale will be sighted on this excursion in June, July and August, with participants receiving a $100 cash refund from the tour operator if a whale is not sighted. To follow best practices in responsible and sustainable tourism, in all other months, no guarantee is offered; however, the tour operator's whale-sighting success rate remains at 99%.

Unaccompanied Minor Policy: Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
