A recent TripAdvisor Review…. “Breaching Whales and an Excellent Crew!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 This was such an awesome day! I have never seen so many whales in my life. There were multiple instances where we saw humpback whales and we even saw a pod of orcas. The captain put the microphone in the water so we could hear the orcas singing underwater. At one point we even saw a baby orca breach, which was amazing!! The captain and his daughter, who was the deckhand, were both wonderful kind people. They were both really funny and nice and always willing to answer questions. I would recommend this trip to everyone! It was my first time to Alaska and this trip allowed to me see a lot of wildlife (eagles, sea lions and whales), glaciers, waterfalls and beautiful mountain ranges that Alaska has to offer! Definitely a must do trip!
While booking our trip to Alaska I used this site to help me plan our trip (June 2014). The whole experience proved to be better than our expectations. The boat is state-of-the-art, gliding through the water. The owner and his daughter pointed out numerous wildlife, areas of interest as well as interesting facts and tidbits. The snacks and beverages were a nice addition. What makes this whole experience worthwhile and a great dollar value is the owner is involved and takes pride in his work while engaging with the customers. The tour contined on land visiting Mendenhall Glacier. That was a wonderful experience as well. The whole experience was one that caps what you expect of your visit in Alaska. This is a must do while staying in beautiful Alaska.
The Fjordlines trip from Skagway via Haines and down to Juneau was a highlight of our Alaska Trip. We have done several wildlife tours internationally, and seen more on this trip than anywhere else in the world. The time spent just watching the Sea Lions congregated on the rocks along the shoreline, roaring and smelling was phenomenal–just as good as National Geographic films. The number of whales that we got to see as they breeched and fed was multiple, both in the morning and the evening return trip. Add in the many Eagles, some nesting, and in flight, could not have been duplicated anywhere. Oh, and don’t forget the Seals that came to play along side the boat! The blueberry muffins were “to die for” with the hot coffee. Who would’ve thought one could have a tasty snack and a delicious evening meal, all while enjoying the great out of doors of Alaska.
