Join a cruise that guarantees wildlife viewing and offers the opportunity to observe sea otters, whales, sea lions, porpoise, harbor seals, brown bears, black-tail deer, bald eagles and a variety of marine birds. An on-board naturalist will explain the workings of this remarkable ecosystem. You’ll also learn about the sea otters' recovery, following their near-extinction at the hands of Russian fur hunters in the early 1800s. The water-jet-driven tour vessel has been designed to navigate Southeast Alaska's narrow island passages, allowing for wildlife viewing at close range. The boat also features a warm cabin with enclosed seating, large windows and a topside observation deck for unparalleled photo opportunities and to fully experience your quest with all your senses.
This tour operator guarantees you will see an otter, a whale or a bear. If not, you'll receive a $100 cash refund as you disembark the vessel. Dress warmly and bring a rainproof jacket to wear on the observation deck. Wheelchair access may be difficult; please consult your cruise line shore excursion department before booking for details. This tour cannot accommodate electric scooters.
