ShoreTrips says...

This boat was specifically designed to maximize your ability to enjoy viewing Alaska's incomparable wildlife and scenery. Your boat provides a spacious, full walk-around deck, extra large windows, a restroom, and comfortable seating in a heated cabin. Add to that a family-owned company that's been providing whale watching tours for more than 20 years and you've got the best of all worlds.

Settle into a comfortable seat as your experienced, knowledgeable captain heads to where the whales are. During the ride, take in the extraordinary beauty of the Alaskan scenery surrounding you and keep an eye out for some of the area's many animals from sea, sky, and land. Sea lions, sea otters, porpoises, eagles, and gulls are spotted most frequently but you might see a bear ambling along the beach in search of a tasty meal. And if it's your lucky day, perhaps the distinctive black and white orca will make an appearance.

But the main reason you're here is to watch those incredible humpback whales. These gentle giants often put on quite a show with their spouting, diving, flipper flapping, tail slapping, and sometimes, even breaching. The odds are pretty good you'll observe at least a few of these exciting whale behaviors. We suggest keeping your camera ready to capture some fantastic photos.
