We had a fabulous whale watching tour with Floyd! I loved that it was a small group (6 people) and that we were able to hear the whales give a signal just before they surfaced for bubble net feeding. It was awesome!

Thank you so much for your awesome review, we appreciate it. This day was a great way to end our season, bubblenet feeding and loud vocal whales! We are glad you were there to witness it! Come back again soon. Marjorie

We saw over a dozen whales, and one swam ten feet away from us, right along side of our boat! We also saw otter, porpoise, and harbor seals.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your tour, we appreciate that. You can feel pretty small when a whale surfaces alongside the boat, huh? Thank you for going with us. Kindest regards, Marjorie

Very friendly people, and they know how to find the whales, which is what it's about. They have a covered boat and offer small groups a personalized tour. We had 8 people total, and the cost is the same as the one with 150 people....More

LOL.......yes, add up all the whale poundage and there certainly are tons alright! We're happy the whales were performing for you. A little clarification, we take out a maximum of 6 passengers. Thank you so much for your review, we appreciate it! Warmest regards, Marjorie

We were in the tour three couples in a nice and comfortable boat. After watching the whales for a while, we went to watch sea lions on small island and further we have seen seals also. This was much more than whales watching.

We really enjoyed Floyd taking us out to see all the whales. He spent time out there so we could get a lot of good pictures. We highly recommend him.

Best watching ever!!! Personal service and with only 6 people on board, we saw many humpbacks and orcas up close!!! Floyd is knowledgable, friendly, and willing to go over and above to make sure you see the best whale watching. 5 stars!

Hoonah (Icy Strait Point) is a great place to see sea otter. This is included in our whale watching/wildlife tour. You can book by going to our website, just click on "website" in the upper right hand corner.
