Your 4 hour private adventure begins with a personal greeting at your ship/hotel (you will receive a text upon our arrival). Our time together has been carefully designed to ensure you experience the very best Alaska's capital city and the inside passage has to offer.
Cruise into the pristine waters off Auke Bay in a whale-watching yacht that combines pure luxury with the opportunity to spot humpback whales breaching the water’s surface.
After departing from the pier in a private Mercedes Sprinter, you will head toward Auke Bay and board the only whale-watching yacht in Alaska. You can expect a first-class experience the entire time, as this excursion offers the most luxurious means possible to view nature.
As you cruise into the surrounding waters, be sure to scan the shoreline for harbor seals, Stellar sea lions and bears. Don’t forget to look up, as bald eagles are frequently spotted soaring overhead and in the trees along the coast. A naturalist will accompany you on the yacht, so feel free to ask questions about the wildlife and marine animals.
Of course, humpback whales are the star attractions. You may see these majestic creatures breaching the water’s surface, waving their flukes up and down as they dive, and feeding voraciously to fatten up for their winter migration south.
You might even spot them bubble-net feeding, a unique technique in which several whales swim in an ever-shrinking circle while blowing bubbles below a school of fish. The bubbles force the fish upwards and cluster them into a column, presenting the perfect opportunity for the whales to gorge themselves. It’s a mesmerizing sight you will not soon forget.
