What types of whales will I see?

Juneau is a feeding ground for humpback whales, and there are so many whales that we are able to offer 100% guaranteed sightings.  The waterways attract the whales all summer long, before they make the long journey to the warming waters of Mexico and Hawaii to breed. There is also an opportunity to see Orca, commonly called Killer Whales, on these tours as well. Orca sightings are very rare as they are very transient and move quickly through the waterways in Southeast Alaska.
