Our capable Captain Josh will be your guide as he finds you all manner of amazing Alaskan wildlife for you to observe; with a 100% success rate at finding whales, you're in excellent hands. But that's not even the best part of this tour! Not just a captain, Captain Josh is also a certified Drone pilot, and on board we have an extremely powerful and large filmography drone that he will use during the tour while you're watching the whales to film them for you from above! This higher perspective is totally unique to this tour, and you'll be awestruck as you see the whole whale swimming, feeding and diving just below the surface with this feature! Not to distract from the wildlife in front of you, he'll show you what he filmed on board while we move from place to place, and at the end of the tour you'll receive a copy of the footage on a USB drive for you to take home! A phenomenal area for whale watching, a skilled captain, a comfortable boat that seats a max of 14, and the only drone videos that you can get of your tour in Alaska!

Look for brown bears in their natural habitat on a bus tour of Chichagof Island. The dense population of bears on the island makes this an ideal trip for tourists hoping to spot bears in the wild. Plus, traveling with a guide who knows the region and bear patterns increases your chances of spotting a bear and provides security and education you don’t get if traveling on your own.

Excellent tour with captain Josh and crew. Tailed a pod of orca. Lots of humpback wales. Sea lions, otters. Josh really knows his way around and the drone is a great idea and good souvenir usb stick. Brilliant day thanks

The staff were all amazing, going over and beyond to find orcas, humpback whales, sea lions, sea otters and bald eagles. The drone photography is exceptional. Highly recommended.

I was had to stay on ship with the norvirus so i called the operator and he said you would credit me the 438.00 . Please let me know if you received e mail from him. Captain Jack

Captain Josh and his first mate Andrew were great! Saw humpback, orcas, sea lions and otters. We got to take home the drone footage! Nice because it’s a small group boat!

We had a wonderful experience with Josh and crew. He did his best to make sure we saw Humpback and Orcas. Also sea lions Thoroughly enjoyable.
