Then, the fun continues on at the famous Alaskan Brewing Company! Choose between twenty delicious brews for your flight samples and kick back in the tasting room! This is the Juneau whale watching tour for those looking to experience two of Juneau's main attractions - Ales & Whales!

Your whale watching vessel features a cozy and heated cabin with a spacious deck, so everyone is able to get a perfect view! Keep an eye out for whale tails and possibly even a breaching whale! The naturalist guides make this excursion both fun and educational as they share their wealth of knowledge about these magnificent creatures.
