|Gray Whale Watch Tour
Cruises start May 8
Gray whales migrate over 5,000 miles from Baja California to the Bering and Chukchi Seas each year in search of food. These whales begin migrating north in late February and travel close to the coastline on their migration. Gray whales arrive in Alaska waters in the spring, spending the summer feeding in shallow waters before they migrate south in mid-October. Travel into the calm waters of Resurrection Bay in search of our returning visitors. In addition to gray whales, watch for humpback whales, orca whales. Stellar sea lions, sea otters, Dall’s porpoises, harbor seals, bald eagles, and many types of seabirds. Tours are fully narrated by experienced captains and naturalist crew members. Complimentary beverages include coffee, tea, and water. Additional snacks and beverages are available for purchase.
