Marine Safari & Nature Expeditions

Our “Marine Safari & Nature Expeditions” shove off near the cruise ship docks in downtown Juneau or Auke Bay providing excellent views of both marine wildlife and both wildlife and beauty of what’s on land. Our ability to be in close proximity to coastline allows you to hear the sounds of the birds, waterfalls, whales, eagles, sea lions, and more, and the size of our vessels means every seat has a great view! 

The knowledgeable staff on this tour will tell you about Juneau’s mining history and point out some related points of interest as you head down the Gastineau Channel to the Taku Inlet area.  Once in the Taku Inlet, Mother Nature steals the show, and we explore pebble beaches, streams, and waterfalls, seal haulouts, old-growth forests, and sea bird cliffs. 

While we do not market this one as a “whale watching tour,” humpback whales often make appearances. 

Options include

  • Marine Safari & Nature Expedition (2. 3, 4, 5, or 6 hours) 
  • Marine Safari & Nature Expedition + Kayaking (4, 5, or 6 hours)

 Whale Safari

Our “Whale Safaris” depart from Auke Bay and head north to the Channel Islands, where the whales hang out. It’s a popular spot for them since what they eat also hangs out there. You’ll see humpback whales (maybe some Killer whales) and unmatched beauty all around you. Sea Lions, seals, eagles, Dall’s porpoise, and other wildlife are known to make appearances as well.

Options include

  • Whale Safari (4, 5, 6 hours; any of these can be private charters up to 6 people)
  • Whale Safari + Kayaking (5 or 6 hours; either can be private charters up to 6 people)
