We booked this tour privately as our NCL cruise ship docked in Juneau, and based on a recommendation we pre-booked this tour. It is definitely worth booking to go on board with Captain Larry. The head office is less than 5 minutes from the central...More

We saw so so so many whales. Nice friendly staff, not crowded at all, and there was a bathroom on the boat. They knew exactly where to go and we're just as excited as we were to see the whales. Best experience!

How did you get Captain Larry as your skipper? We were told he is no longer available for requests/reservations (ie: you get him if you're lucky to have him assigned that day).

Hi Carol! What time did you take your cruise? I was planning on taking the last one of the day that ended at 630 bc my cruise doesn't port till 2 and can't decide if I'll have enough time after to visit the glacier.
