What people are saying about Alaska
Everything was professional, clean, and a perfect balance of amazing, informative, and fun. The experience seeing the Kenai area was breathtaking. The boats, bathroom, etc. were clean and well maintained. The system was friendly and professional at every level from food/drink service to binocular check out. We were very pleased and impressed with the captain's informative and entertaining narration. We learned a lot from this trip and really appreciated the science context. As we left we heard a young guy with ear plugs and tattoos behind us say "every time that dude got on the intercom I got smarter." We couldn't recommend this trip enough. The boats seem to get closer than 300 feet to the whales, but I just hope they are only chased down for a short while each day.
Who would have thought I could say a 15hr van ride with 9 strangers on a supremely bumpy road, was fun?! It was awesome! All the stops were well timed, informative, and beautiful. The guide, Jake, was knowledgeable, and skilled at navigating the Dalton. And even though the clouds were there,he showed us it was possible to see the Northern Lights burning through in some places. The skies did clear up some on the drive back, and even though it was 3am, our guide still made sure to stop where he could so we could all get out and look up. Had a great time and 10/10 would do again.
I am biased since everything you cant control went well. Saw whales, puffins, sea lions, and many other birds. The sun was out, the weather was great. Yet all of the things the crew on board could control were great. Lots of great information, drinks, and binoculars available. I would recommend anyone give the tour a try.
We had a blast. The water was a bit rough but that Captain and crew made sure we were all comfortable and prepared. Of all the things we did in Alaska we agreed this was by far our favorite thing.
Captain and crew were amazing, very competent, professional, and accommodating. Ship was very clean and comfortable. I cannot recommend this cruise more highly.
