An Incomparable Wildlife Experience

Alaska Fjordlines Whale Watching

Nothing on earth rivals the wild beauty of Southeast Alaska: the spectacular glacially carved fjords, the rugged islands, the pristine waters and the rich marine life. Let Alaska Fjordlines show you the very best of this unspoiled corner of the world on our 2 1/2 hour Juneau Alaska whale watching cruise.

We are here to show you whales!

Alaska Fjordlines Whale Watching

Humpback whales ply the icy waters of Southeast Alaska during the summer months for one reason: To feed. In order to sustain themselves during their fall migration south, adult humpbacks must consume tons of herring, needlefish and krill each week. North and west of Juneau currents converge and the waters teem with schools of these tiny fish, providing an abundant food source for the whales. Our captain and crew are experts at spotting wildlife and positioning the boat for unobstructed views.

Alaska Fjordlines Whale WatchingOther species commonly sighted on our Juneau Whale Watching Excursions include Steller Sea lions, Orca or “Killer whales”, harbor seals, Dall’s and harbor porpoise and bald eagles.

We'll make photo stops at Poundstone Rock, and the historic Sentinel Island lighthouse north of Juneau.

A 65', 48 passenger, high speed catamaran, the Fjordland was custom built for the waters of Lynn Canal and specially designed for viewing wildlife up close. The Fjordland is the perfect size, large enough to handle the occasional choppy waters, but small enough for intimate cruising.
