In the Gallery, meet Captain Kelsey (owner of Da Whale Boat on Big Island, Hawaii). Steve and Kelsey collaborated Summer of 2022 and plan to continue their collaboration winter of 2023 as Steve and family temporarily relocate to Hawaii for the whale season. Both Alaska Humpback Adventures and Da Whale Boat share very similar values and excellence in giving guests the best whale watching their location has to offer.

Fantastic Family Friendly Whale Watching

We had an amazing time out on the water with Captains Steve and Kelsey. They not only taught us about the whales but took the time to get to know us. We had so many whale encounters but also saw sea lions, harbor seals and bald eagles. We got to watch a couple different whales lunge feed which was a new experience for us. As much as possible they allowed us to determine how long to spend with each sighting. You could tell they absolutely love their jobs, love the whales, and love people.

Captain Steve and Kelsey were amazing.. So knowledgeable and informative. We saw about 15 Humpbacks during our tour. Great time with a small group. My wife and I had an amazing time.. Definitely recommend Captain Steve..

Book with Alaska Humpback Adventures!

Steve is a fantastic captain with a wealth of knowledge about humpback whales and the area. Do not waste your time booking with one of the “big” name tours. You can’t go wrong booking with a small family owned operation.

The only way to whale watch!

Had a fantastic, intimate whale watching experience. It's a smaller boat so you're not crowded among 40 other people...6 people total, including Captain Steven, with plenty of room. He knows where to look for Humpbacks; no endless chasing, we ended up in the middle of about 10-12 whales surrounding our boat. Captain Steven is also very knowledgeable about whales and frequently pointed out things to look for. He also came to pick us up at our hotel in downtown Juneau. Definitely worth every penny spent.
