Juneau has a generous population of around 65 whales that roam the nutrient-rich waters looking for their seasonal feast. Your guides and captain are well-versed in locating the best locations for the Humpback whales. You'll be able to stand outside on the deck, take in the fresh air, and see whales breaching from a distance. The tour provides you with binoculars to enjoy during the tour for enhanced viewing pleasure.
Following your whale watching portion, you will disembark and make your way to Juneau's charming waterfront district to enjoy a generous meal at the renowned King Crab Station. Prepare your taste buds for a delicious meal of Bering Sea Red King Crab legs and more. The main dish is delightfully complimented with coleslaw, seafood chowder, and homemade bread. You will also have your choice of soda, beer, or wine to cap off this authentic Alaskan cuisine experience!
