Default are whales out at the end of May?

If I book an excursion to see wildlife, will I see whales at the end of May? Or should I stick to a land cruise and go see the bears?

Sitka is varied wildlife, not a whale watch. Humpbacks are usually seen. Independents are the way to go in my opinion. The ship tours are more fixed routings.

The summer feeding season runs from May to early October, which is a great time of year to see Humpback whales. Frederick Sound, Stephens Passage and Chatham Strait are the best areas to see them.
