This exciting tour combines a “whales guaranteed” sightseeing cruise with Alaska’s finest wilderness salmon bake. You’ll board a warm, comfortable, waterjet-powered catamaran, and set out to explore the island-studded waters of Stephen’s Passage. This area is world-renowned as a favored summer feeding ground for humpback whales.
Once whales have been sighted, your skilled captain will maneuver the vessel to allow exceptional viewing and photographic opportunities. Don’t forget your camera, and be sure to bring a warm jacket to wear on the topside observation deck; the whales are often close enough to hear them breathe! An onboard naturalist will explain the behavior and habitat of the humpback whale and other wildlife you may encounter, including killer whales, sea lions, porpoise, harbor seals, bald eagles and more!
You’ll take a leisurely break from cruising to step ashore at Orca Point Lodge on Colt Island, to enjoy a feast that includes grilled wild Alaska salmon, chicken kabobs, vegetable medley, rice pilaf, cole slaw, fresh-hot rolls and desserts. The lodge offers peaceful seclusion with modern comforts in a remote wilderness setting. Visit the marine life viewing pool, scan the coast of Admiralty Island with a powerful spotting scope or take a stroll along the beach before the reboarding your catamaran for the return cruise to Auke Bay.
The operators of this tour guarantee you will see a whale. If not, you’ll receive a $100 cash refund as you disembark the tour vessel. But don’t anticipate a refund; in the past 15-years whales have been sighted on every tour!
