"Fodor's First Choice"
for Whale-watching in Juneau

 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018!

 The Weather Permitting is a "wheelchair friendly" vessel.

For your convenience, we arrange for you to be picked up directly at your cruise-ship, and once your whale-watching tour concludes... you'll be transported back to the cruise-ship dock's area located in downtown Juneau.

Our standard luxury trip lasts four hours, with a minimum of 3-hours being spent directly on the water.
The tour time (which include van travel), will allow abundant time to find and view whales, as well to encounter other animals like Orcas, Bears, Sea lions, Eagles, and Porpoises - all the while immersed in the incredible scenery that Southeast Alaska has to offer. We also carry high quality binoculars to enhance our passenger's viewing experience.

We rarely have more then ten customers on a trip so everyone receives close personal attention. If you're a larger extended family, or are two family groups traveling together... we will take up to 12 people. All of our whale watching trips include healthy snacks of home-style cookies, crackers, various cheeses... along with an assortment of non-alcoholic beverages.  AND... if you want an incredible trip just add an Alaskan celebrity to your trip (advance notice required). See our Alaskan celebrity page.

This is a video that was taken by one of our guest. It is unedited and Rachel was kind enough to send it to me. Just click on the link below and I hope you enjoy.

Our boat is custom made by an Alaskan company and designed to combine speed, stability and strength with great visibility. Equipped with a bathroom, refrigerator, and cabin-heat... it has ample room to walk around, as well as large windows and a front deck for viewing.
For those concerned with getting seasick, this is the most stable boat you can find.  It is a catamaran and is over 13 feet wide and 32 feet long.

The Weather Permitting boat is a Coast Guard inspected aluminum catamaran built to meet the highest of Coast Guard standards, as well as being certified by the U.S. Forest Service. Aside from the incredibly stable catamaran double hull, the Weather Permitting is equipped with first-aid/A.E.D., redundant safety systems, and full electronics. 

Lou Douros, has been nominated for an Emmy Award for his documentary In the Wake of Giants and is currently working on the sequel called Northern Wake.He was kind enough to put together this short video about our company and the business of whale watching. Our company is an education company that does whale watching. That means that in addition to seeing whales and getting great pictures in a very stable boat you will also get the latest knowledge about whales and other marine mammals to take home with you. Hope you enjoy the video which also stars Oscar the dog.
