As for our other Juneau Alaska whale watching tours, the adventure begins with pick-up directly from the cruise docks and a lovely 12-mile ride to Auke Bay, north of Juneau. Your knowledgeable local guide will make sure to keep you entertained and will answer any questions you may have en-route. Then it’s off onto the water! You’ll board a 50-passenger vessel custom-built for wildlife watching and push off into the bay, which, with some of the most pristine marine waters and dazzling views of the surrounding mountains, is sure to leave a lasting impression. No wonder the whales love it so much! Keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready: After all, besides its massive mammalian visitors, Auke Bay is home to bald eagles, graceful Dall’s porpoises, the surprisingly large Steller sea lion, and even black bears! Later, once you’ve had your fill of humpback sightings, it’s off to Juneau’s premier waterfront eatery for a feast to remember. Hopefully you’ve saved plenty of room, as you’ll be treated to crab legs, coleslaw, chowder, drinks, and of course plenty of butter for dipping. This new and exciting excursion is the king of Juneau Alaska whale watching tours!
