Private & Custom Alaska Whale Watching Tours

The thrill of your first Humpback whale, experienced close-up, is an emotional experience for first-timers.  Everyone has their own way of describing this incredible sight.  Sometimes instead of the usual outbursts, there is a loss for words and a deafening silence as you hear the enormous humpback whale take one last breath before a dive.  I love helping people be part of an unforgettable experience.
