Default Best whale watching tours in Juneau

Will be taking Radisson Navigator on our first Alaska cruise this summer. Would like to take a whale watching tour in Juneau. I know the ship offers one, should we book Orca or Dolphin on our own? Any thoughts?

I definately prefer the independents. They have smaller boats with fewer people and usually are on the water 30 mins. longer whale watching. I have gone with both Orca and Dolphin. If you can't be confortable with booking direct go with the ship. All tours go to the same place- Auke Bay.

Thanks, Karen. Also posted my question on another website and received similar advice. We are comfortable booking on our own, and will check out Dolphin and Orca.

Hi Lisa,
Just got a message from a fellow Alaska cruiser who said definately stick with the independants. She said Orca with "Captain Larry" is the best. I just called and booked with Donna. Hope you have a great time!

Thanks, Rick and JJ,

Following suggestions here and on other websites, we booked a tour with Captain Larry and Orca last week. Looking forward to it.
