  • Got to see multiple humpback whales. There were even four in a row, all breaching at the same time. Amazing sight!

  • Great tour! Saw multiple whales, although kind of far away. However, this was not the fault of the captain, the whales were traveling here and there, and were unpredictable. The boat was clean and the seats were comfortable. The tour for both the whale watching and glacier was well done. Our bus drive was full of knowledge of the area.
  • This was the Whale watching trip of a lifetime. Brandon, out boat Captain, positioned the boat perfectly, turned off the engine and this is what happened. The Whale in the pictures swam around our boat and put on a show for over 20 minutes. His mother circled the boat to keep an eye on him. She was HUGE. William and Monica, our naturalist on the boat, were as excited to see this show as we were. Monica even teared up a little. They told us that this was a rare occurrence. They were quick to give us an anatomy lesson since the whale was so close. They were very knowledgeable on all aspects of whale behavior and gladly shared their knowledge with us. The whale was so close to the boat that Brandon told us if was not illegal he would let us pet it. You know you have gotten your moneys worth when the Captain and Naturalist are snaping pictures as fast as you are! We had just enough time at Mendenhall Glacier to take the scenic walk to the base of the glacier and stand under the amazing waterfall and then take the short walk to the stream to see the Salmon. A little more time would have been nice to take in the visitors center but I am not complaining. I would definitely do this excursion again.
  • I had an amazing time whale watching with Captain Marina and the crew (Greg and Danny). Danny was such a god sport and very knowledgeable about the whales we were able to see today. I'd love to do this again.
  • Booked this through Viator. Alaska Tales was first rate. From the bus driver to the modern boat to the knowledgeable crew on the whale watching excursion, first rate. Highly recommend this company! Captain Sarah and Olive were awesome, as was the third crew member whose name absolutely escapes me right now. Go Alaska Tales!!
  • WOW! This was such a majestic experience. We were fortunate enough at the time we went to see a mom with her 7 month old calf jumping out of the water and playing. It was truly a wonderful experience we will never forget. The staff was very kind, knowledgeable, and fun. The boat was very nice and comfortable with seating inside. I would highly recommend this tour!
