Notes

Set sail on an awesome adventure in search of Alaska's wildlife and whales.

Excursion Description

Take a short motorcoach ride to scenic Auke Bay, where you will board a high-speed catamaran specifically designed for wildlife viewing.

On this excursion you will:

  • Relax in the warm, comfortable main cabin, surrounded by large panoramic windows as your experienced captain guides you through the island-studded waters of Stephen's Passage.
  • Learn against the majestic backdrop of the Chilkat mountains and the glaciers of the Juneau Ice Field, your onboard naturalist explains the behavior and habitats of the wildlife you may encounter, including humpback and killer whales, Stellar sea lions, harbor seals, bald eagles, and Sitka black-tailed deer.
  • Be guaranteed by the operators of this excursion to see a whale. If not, you'll receive a $100 cash refund ($50 refund per child) as you disembark. But don't anticipate a refund; in the past nine years, whales have been sighted on every trip!
  • Be provided throughout your cruise an attentive crew.

Note: The vessel is restroom equipped, and binoculars and souvenir route guides are provided along with complimentary snacks and beverages.

Bring a warm jacket to take advantage of the outside areas. Remember to bring your camera!

And if your shore excursion experience was less than perfect - well, that's perfectly alright too - we'd like you to share your experience here too. The more reviews that are left, the better a resource this is for everybody.

How to leave a great review

All you need to do is share your honest opinions. (Just make sure it doesn't include personally-identifying information or pricing information.) Try to remember as many details as you can about your experience - the more you can add to it, the better. We'll also ask you to score the excursion based on Value, Convenience... and perhaps most importantly, Fun.

Why reviews are important

Reviews help cruisers just like you make more informed decisions when planning ways to spend their time ashore. They also help Carnival understand which shore excursion operators are providing our guests with fun experiences that meet their expectations, so that we can constantly improve our shore excursion lineup across all ports of call that Carnival visits.
