We got to see several whales and we even saw a mother and baby whale. Additionally, we saw a bald eagle on the buoy that have several seals on the bottom of the buoy. It was an amazing sight to see... more »

09/17/2019 we had the pleasure of a using Alaska Tales to visit Mendenhall Glacier and go out one of their new Whale Watching Boats. Started with narrated trip to the Glacier followed by a second trip to the Marina. Our Whale Watching trip was with Rich, Matt, and Kenny. The new boat was warm and plenty of seating with huge windows. They would stop when they got to an area with whale activity and we could go out on the bow, stern, or up on top. We saw more whales then I had ever seen on one tour. They knew the names of the whales because of marking on their tales. We left late afternoon and got to enjoy Sunset on the water. The late afternoon sun made for great viewing. The ladies that answer the phones were very informative and made me know this was the tour I wanted to take. The shuttle had us back to our Holland America ship on time. We enjoyed a 70 degree day in late September. Our best weather day in Alaska.
Sept 9, 2019 late afternoon trip and in 2 hours saw some 14+ humpbacks and 2 orcas several times. What a great captain, naturalist, crew. Not to sound corny, but this was one of the highlights of our lives! Don't book thru cruise ships or other big box tour operators like we did...book directly with Alaska Tales.
