Captian Jacks Whale Watching

Welcome back to Captain Jack’s!

It brings me great joy to say that I’ve been selling tours for 25 years. From my humble shack in front of the cruise ship docks, I’ve met so many wonderful people and have gained invaluable experience along the way. I’m excited to continue sharing my knowledge with you, even before you arrive in Alaska.

I remember the days when whale watching tours were just beginning to gain popularity, and now there are so many options to choose from. Fortunately, my wealth of experience and personal relationships with all the players involved will help me guide you towards the right tour option.

Captain Jacks, our little slice of paradise offers some of the best whale watching in the entire world, and we’re so confident in our offerings that we offer a 100 percent guarantee to see whales during your tour or your money back.

Whales are truly amazing creatures. They’re incredibly intelligent and can live to be over 100 years old. That means that the creatures you’ll have the pleasure of seeing up close have been swimming in our oceans for a century or more!

Plus, the relationship between humans and whales is a long and storied one. People have been interacting with these gentle giants for centuries, and every person who has ever had the pleasure of seeing one up close has been touched. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity!

Humpback Whales are Guaranteed in Juneau
The magnificent humpback whales are known for their impressive feeding technique called "bubble net feeding". This strategy involves a group of whales creating a ring of bubbles around their prey, which forces the fish to swim to the surface. Once the prey is near the surface, the humpback whales surge towards their meal with mouths open wide.

Alaska Salmon Fishing
When it comes to fishing, it's not always about catching the biggest or the most fish, but rather enjoying the experience of being out on the water and in nature. That's why we often say "it's called fishing, not catching." However, that's not to say that we haven't had mostly successful outings. In fact, we have a pretty good record of bringing home some nice catches.
