Default Alaska, best time?

I'm interested in an Alaskan cruise, but I'd like to book for a time when the whale watching is best. Anyone know when is the best time of year to see whales?

In the process of researching lots on Alaska as we are cruising there this summer. We were told that any time is OK for the whales because they are there year round-just different species. Hope this is true - we are going in June Enjoy Alaska!

Hi Marnie! You are talking about one of my all-time favorite subjects!! During a cruise in Sept., our tour group saw, literally, countless whales. Our excursion was out of Sitka. Last year, in June, we took an excursion out of Juneau, and saw a few whales. The time of year, and port you are in does make a difference. Also, saw whales from our ship on both of these cruises. If I were you, I'd do some investigating through the chambers of commerce (online) of the ports you will be visiting. You will love Alaska!!
