ShoreTrips says...

Humpback Whales are best known for their intricate mating songs that have led scientists to pin them as incredibly intelligent creatures. We'll let you imagine that they are saying to each other!

When you step onto a boat that is the same size as the whales you are viewing, the perfect perspective is provided. Take advantage of this opportunity to be a part of one the most intimate whale viewings along the Alaskan coast. Your experienced captain will lead the way as he takes you to the most frequented areas by whales and other wildlife off the shores of Icy Strait!

It will likely be sensation overload as you try to decide which animal to keep an eye out for. The main focus will be the pursuit of whales but if you are lucky you could encounter sea lions, sea otters, eagles, porpoises and puffins as well! If you're especially lucky, you'll be able to see bubble-net feeding, which is a cooperative method where a pod forms a circle and then dives under water. Once submerged, they blow air to create a wall of bubbles that forces krill and plankton to the surface, creating a prime condition for feasting.

Spotting one of these majestic creatures could end up being the highlight of your entire trip.

Make sure you have your camera on the ready. You never know when these behemoths are going to jump out of the water.
