Captain Harry gave us a thrilling whale watching excursion. We wanted a local small boat experience instead of the crowed tours provided by the cruise ships. Captain Harry knows all kinds of interesting facts about the marine life in Juneau. There was only 5 of us on his boat and it was great. Highly recommend his tour. Anne, Rochester, New... More

We went on an Alaskan Cruise a little while back (the date option didn't go past 2016 so I chose the month we went) and we chose Weather Permitting for our Juneau excursion and it was the highlight of the whole trip! The boat was small enough to keep the excursion personal. He took us all over the waters and... More

We did the whale watching and Mendenhahl Glacier excursion in Juneau while in Alaska in early August off of a cruise ship this year. We saw so many humpback whales and witnessed the "bubble feeding" by these whales..These were truly once in a lifetime photo ops. The Mendenhahl Glacier was absolutely gorgeous as the second part of this excursion. If... More

Being on the Explorer of the Seas, we decided to book a whale watching tour independently to avoid the crowds on a ship sponsored trip. After some research, we decided on Weather Permitting. I received a prompt, courteous reply from Captain Harry and waited anxiously for our cruise to begin. We were picked up, on time, at the pier, and... More

I've been out twice with Captain Harry, once in June and then again in Aug! Amazing trip both times. Small group, personal attention and beautiful whale sightings each time. On our Aug trip we spent 2+ hours watching bubble net fishing! Amazing!!

This was the highlight of my Alaskan vacation. Captain Harry is so knowledgeable and down right fun to be with. We found the whales early on and basically watched them for 2 hours. Amazing creatures. Thanks again, Captain Harry, for making it so much fun.

Captain Harry is very patient in our communication when I am booking the tour. I initially booked 2 whale watching trips with him but had to cancel one unfortunately, but he was understanding about it. He is very knowledgeable about the whales and wildlife and told us stories about his whale watching experience, as well as educated us on the... More

The best experience of our entire trip to Alaska. We watched over 1 1/2 hours of whales feeding on herring by bubble netting in pods of 8-12. The captain was awesome and took great care of us. He was very knowledgeable so the trip was extremely educational as well as visually stunning

Two of us were in Juneau on business, and we didn't have the luxury of choosing the date, so Capt. Harry agreed to take us out, as the only passengers. It was a spectacular evening, with perfect weather and a wonderful narration by Capt. Harry as Dave took the wheel and helped us find a lot of humpbacks, and even... More
