WHALE WATCHING TOURS IN ALASKA

Trip availability is limited.
Orca Enterprises operates several trips daily based on cruise ship schedules. Passenger seating is self restricted to insure a fun, personalized, and quality tour with lots of room for people who want to get away from the crowds. This is an exclusive, VIP tour which is very popular and fills quickly. Many naturalists on the cruise ships recommend us as the "must do wildlife tour in Juneau" and often accompany us. As many as 8,000 visitors arrive daily on the cruise ships, only a few of these will have the opportunity to accompany Capt. Larry on board the purple jet boat.
Departure and return times are from our office across the street from the tram and the cruise ship terminal. If your pick up point is other than our office allow a few minutes for our courtesy shuttle to get there.
