Juneau Whale Watching Tours • 2020 Season: April 30 - October 1

Each Harv & Marv's Juneau whale watching boat is scheduled for as many as 3 tours a day: one in the morning, one midday and one in the late afternoon/evening.

Tour duration: About 4 hours and 15 minutes. This 4 hour and 15 minute tour includes approximately 1 hour of round trip transfer time, 3 hours of whale watching/sightseeing cruise, walking on the dock to the boat, and bathroom breaks.

Join locally trained captains: Steve, Russel, Louis, Ray or Gabe, for a personalized Alaskan whale watching tour. Our departure times are not the same everyday because each day is different. Cruise ships arrive at different times and passengers may have different activities planned for the day. We schedule the tour for the time that best fits each guests' needs and time frame.
