Experience the most sought-after Alaskan adventure in the best whale watching boat in Alaska where every seat is a window seat. This small group tour - 24 people maximum, is 3 hours long from pick up to drop off. Once you arrive at Icy Strait Point you will be met by your guide very close to the cruise ship dock. Transfers to and from the vessel are included and we guarantee to get you back in time for all on board. Choose one of two departures that are scheduled around your ship's arrival and departure times. On board Alaska's most specialized whale watching boat, guaranteed whale sightings have never been a problem! Icy Strait and Point Adolphus is world renowned when it comes to whale activity and is home to a large number of Humpback Whales as well as Orca. Completely protected from the elements yet experiencing the up and close feel of the water and whales is what sets this tour apart from all others. Come out with our family and enjoy the time of your life!

This 3 hour whale watching adventure typically starts one hour after your ships's arrival time. Choose from one of two departures that are scheduled around your ship's arrival time. You will be met by your guide at the Excursions Hub who will be holding a sign that says "Icy Strait Whale Adventures". Once you exit the ship, walk up the dock that leads you into the Adventure Center. Exit out of Door Number 2 which is clearly marked above the door. Follow the gravel path and signs leading you to the Excursions Hub. Once you exit Door Number 2 it is a short 2 minute walk to the Excursions Hub. Once there your guide will be there to meet you and get you all checked in. Your confirmation email is your ticket so please print that out - it has all the details on how to get to the Excursions hub as well as your meet time. All transfers are included, you will be taken to the Hoonah City Dock where your boat and Captain await you. After a short safety briefing it is a half hour boat ride out to the whale feeding grounds of Alaska. Your Captain will take you to various areas that he knows of common to whales. So depending on where the whales have migrated to on that day it is likely you can be exploring the areas of Port Frederick, Icy Strait, Cross Sound - the mouth of Glacier Bay and Neka Bay. These are all well known areas for South East Alaskan whales to frequent. During your tour It is also possible to see Orca or Killer Whale, Sea Lions, Sea Otters, Seals, Porpoise, Bald Eagles, various Ducks and other water fowl. If our Captain is especially lucky he may be able to sight brown bear on the shore as you are heading out or coming back. So keep on the look out for brown fuzzy rocks on the beach just in case! Whale sightings are guaranteed on this tour. If a whale is not seen on tour a 50% refund will be given back onto the credit card used for booking. Refund is given the same day. For those with mobility issues there is a Care Cart waiting at the gangway for people with wheelchairs, walkers, canes or any mobility issues. Board the Care Cart and let them know you are heading to the Excursions Hub. Please allow extra time as the Care Cart does wait until it is full before departing and run every 10- 15 minutes.

Embark on a small-group, 3-hour whale watching and wildlife sightseeing tour from Hoonah, Alaska. Every season humpback whales come in large numbers to Hoonah to feed on the nutrient-rich waters of Glacier Bay and Icy Strait before migrating south again for the winter. The whale population begins to arrive in Hoonah in May, and stays through September.

The tour begins when you are picked up from the Excursions Hub at Icy Strait Point. A short drive along Shaman Point to the Hoonah City Commercial Dock will have you at the boat. Along the way, keep an eye out for local wildlife including bald eagles, blacktail deer, and more. Hoonah is home to the largest concentration of Alaskan Brown Bears in the world.
While traveling along the shorelines, sightings of bears, deer, coastal ducks and geese, blue heron, puffin, swans, terns, cormorants and more are common. In the water you may get a chance to spot humpback, Orca, sea otters, sea lions, porpoises, and seals. Your captains are knowledgeable guides who are happy to share their wealth of knowledge. The boats are built for speed and comfort, and perfectly suited for travel along Alaska’s waterways. With viewing decks and heated cabins, guests will stay warm and dry as they experience the wonder and beauty of the trip.
Humpbacks are amazingly active and typical whale sightings will include diving, blows, and flukes (tails). Lucky whale-watchers may get to see bubble-net feeding, a cooperative feeding method where a pod forms a circle and dives under the water. They then blow air to create a wall of bubbles that force krill and plankton to the surface where the whales can eat them.
You will return to the docks and enjoy transport back to Icy Strait Point with plenty of time to board your ship or explore downtown Hoonah.
