Default DOLPHINTOURS.COM - JUNEAU WHALE WATCHING

Anyone had any experience with booking Juneau Whale Watching through Dolphintours.com??? Boards talk about Captain Larry at Orca Enterprises, but we would like any information if anyone has done Whale Watching through Dolphintours.

Thanks!

We have done the whale watching with Captain Larry and with the cruiseline (Princess). We liked the cruiseline tour better. Whatever company you take the tour is definately worth it.

I've been out with Capt. Larry on ever cruise to Alaska and have never got sick . I'm also very prone to getting sea sick what i do is take ginger root pills about 1/2 hour before i go on the boat. i' ve had all kind of whales we have a great time ever time this is a adventure you dont want to miss.

I have gone with both operators. Both give a good tour. Sightings are the luck of the draw but Humpbacks are seen close to 100% of the trips with orcas only coming in every 5-10 days. You are on the water- you can get sea sick- if prone take precautions. Allen Marine does the ship tours- will not direct book cruise passengers. Dolphin also has some ship contracts.
