3:00 PM Whale Watching Tour Details for 2012

3:00 PM Whale Watching Tour Details for 2012

Thank you for choosing Whale Watch Alaska, for your whale watch adventure in Juneau, Alaska. We will be looking for you a few minutes before 2:30 PM at the top of the ramp where your ship docks holding a sign and with your name and Whale Watch Alaska on it. We will also call you 30 minutes ahead of time to make sure everything is going smooth. At 2:30 PM we will depart for Auke Bay, Juneau, Alaska, a 30 minute drive to where your whale watching boat will disembark at 3:00 PM for 2 hours on the water wildlife cruise. You will return to your dock in downtown Juneau by 5:30 PM.

Please check our web site under ‘Tour News’ for any changes: for example; if your ship is delayed an hour, a day, or canceled for any reason, also, we will have up to the minute weather stats making sure your trip is safe and enjoyable. Your safety is our first priority and your satisfaction is our second. This is going to be a trip you will never forget and to share with your friends and family for the rest of your life.

Bring a warm fleece and waterproof windbreaker, light or thin gloves would not hurt. We will be cruising inside the world’s largest temperate rain-forest. If it is turns out to be 92 degrees that day you don’t have to wear your warm clothes, but you sure will appreciate it in the cool breeze and rain of 50 degrees on a brisk day on the ocean.

Remember your time is going to be outside on the deck taking pictures or video and catching your breath as the humpback whales will take it away by their sheer size: up to 52 feet long and weighing 30 to 50 tons, twice as big as the boat we will be in. Umbrellas do not work on the ocean with the wind and close proximity of each other so don’t bring one on-board please. Bring an extra battery and flash card for lots of video and pictures. Practice taking fast shots and video. Learn how to plan your shots quickly, the boat will be floating every direction possible and when a resident killerwhale breaches while chasing her dinner, maybe a 40 pound king salmon, you want to be ready for the shot of a lifetime.

Please call or email us for any questions.

Thank you.

How to Save Money Coming to Alaska

If you have not gotten a Alaska Airline Visa Card, now might be the time to apply for one. It only takes a few minutes and if you are approved they will send you a ‘Companion Fair’ ticket. What this means is when you buy one ticket and cash in your companion fair voucher or ticket they sent you along with your card, you can buy an additional ticket for $100. It costs this much to use this voucher.


You need to call this voucher in to use and you cannot use it if you book with a travel agency.


Also, be sure to check their site often for ‘Web Specials.’ They often have sales from all over the country to Alaska or Seattle or where ever here for CHEAP!


If you drink wine, then sign up for their millage program and start earning miles for a free ticet which costs around 15,000 off season and up from their.


Also, note it is simply cheaper to buy aAlaska Airline tickets with millage. Now how you do this is make a reservation and then see how many miles it will take to fly and if you do not have any then just buy enough to fly on that reservation, simple. It will cost an everage of $100 less per ticket, but late minutes rates which normally cost more will no longer apply due to buying with milage.


Friend vouchers at $300 + on craigslist are sometimes available, but very secreative.


Let me know if you have other ideas please. See you soon.
