Enjoy a secluded Sitka whale watching & marine life adventure on the Private Wilds of Sitka Sound Expedition by Boat. Aboard the Peregrine, a 30-foot coastal expedition vessel, your expert guide will take you on a wildlife-packed adventure through the waters surrounding Sitka. Framed on either side by the Baranof Islands & Mount Edgecumbe, you’ll be awed by the natural beauty both surrounding & below you. Keep your eyes out for the myriad of kelp forests below, and your eyes on the horizons for whales, porpoises, bald eagles, and more.

Sea conditions permitting, you’ll circumnavigate St. Lazaria National Wildlife Refuge for some of the Inside Passage’s best bird watching. The rugged cliffs of this island home nearly half a million birds, including tufted puffins, guillemots, murres, and rhinoceros auklets. Your expert guide will navigate the waters in search of Sitka whale watching, beautiful views, or whatever else meets your fancy. As you navigate the coastlines, gaze up in the moss-draped trees, and keep your eyes peeled for black-tailed deer and brown bears foraging in the intertidal zone.

John, your boat captain & guide on the Private Wilds of Sitka Sound Expedition by Boat has over 35 years of experience taking guests on marine adventures in Alaska. With his expert knowledge, he’ll guide you safely through the beautiful myriad of islands, and use his extensive understanding of local wildlife to find marine life for you to experience. Pack your cameras and a warm pair of clothes for this once-in-a-lifetime Sitka whale watching & marine excursion.

    Will the trip still operate if it is raining?

    Answer: Because much of SE Alaska is a rainforest, these trips do operate rain or shine. If weather conditions are unsafe, the trip will be canceled and we will refund you.

    Is there a restroom on board the boat?

    Answer: Yes, there is a restroom on board the boat and also an opportunity to use the restroom before embarking the vessel.

    What should we wear and bring?

    Answer: This tour operates rain or shine, and rain is common as we lie in a temperate rainforest! For comfort, we typically recommend long pants, closed-toed shoes and a waterproof jacket. Some guests choose to bring a small bag or backpack along to store extra layers, a bottle of water and cameras.

    Do you guarantee that we will see wildlife?

    Answer: While providing exceptional opportunities to observe and photograph marine mammals and other wildlife, we will do it in a way that does not stress the animals. We do not promise that you will get really close to whales, or closer than other boats. Frankly, some boat operators behave very badly around whales, and they too-frequently impact the whales’ ability to forage and rest. If we see too many boats around the same whale or group of whales, we won’t even stop. We will wait for a better opportunity to watch whales which does not cause stress to the animals.

    What kind of boat will we be on?

    Answer: This 30ft vessel offer's a comfortable and stable ride for its 6 passengers and additional crew. It's drop bow feature allows you to easily step ashore without getting your feet wet. There are 2 outdoor viewing areas along with spacious seating inside.
