Alaska Outback Whale Watching Experience
This four-hour and 15-minute tour includes approximately one hour of roundtrip transfer time, three hours of whale watching/sightseeing cruise, walking on the dock to the boat, and bathroom breaks.
From the time we depart from your pick up location until the time we return you, it will be about four and a quarter hours which includes roundtrip transportation from your pick-up location.
Most tours will include a stop at the Brotherhood Bridge for a photo opportunity of the Mendenhall Glacier. We will pick you up in our courtesy shuttle near your cruise ship or hotel and drive you out to the boat and return you to your ship/hotel when we are done with the tour.
Join locally trained captains for a personalized Alaska whale watching tour. This tour is an exceptional way to enjoy a small boat experience and have direct access to excellent view opportunities.
Speak one-on-one with the captain and naturalist! Meet our dock rep at your cruise ship dock and board our courtesy shuttle. Enjoy a scenic ride to the Auke Bay boat harbor and return (about 25 minutes each way).
A complimentary stop at the Brotherhood Bridge for a view of the Mendenhall Glacier is available before or after each tour depending on that day’s schedule.
If your tour time is 9:30 a.m., this is the time we plan for transportation to leave! PLEASE arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the listed tour time, so that we can leave on time!
We would then plan to arrive at the harbor where our boats depart by 10 a.m. When you arrive at the harbor, you will be met by your captain or guide and have an opportunity to use the restroom on land (there is one on the boat, it’s just not as roomy) and then you will head down the dock to board our vessel for your whale watching adventure!
You will start heading back to the harbor at approximately 12:35 p.m. (depending on where you are) so that you can be disembarking by about 12:55 p.m. to meet your returning transport at 1 p.m.
The shuttle will head to the Brotherhood Bridge for a look at the Mendenhall Glacier on your return to town. This stop will be 10 to 15 minutes in duration, you will then be returned back to your pick up location by 1:45 p.m. Mendenhall Glacier sighting is weather dependent.
