Dolphin Jet Boat. We just returned from Alaska 8-6-01. We sailed NCL Wind and did whale watching from Juneau. We took Dolphin and booked on board. Cost $110.00 pp. It was worth every penny. Our Captin was RD our mate/Naturalist was Rick. We saw about 12 whales. RD got within 50 yard or so from whales.
Either www.alaskawhalewatching.com or www.dolphintours.com I have gone with both- just stay away from some ship contractors- Allen Marine 150 passengers. ALL go to the same area of Auke Bay with turn around at the buoy. Go with who fits your schedule- book direct for a sure thing. I recommend booking for soon after arriving in port- then you would have an unobstructed block of time for other touring when you finish the whale watch.
