Whale Watching And Marine Wildlife
Whale Watching and Marine Wildlife
The city lies in a unique location, nestled between the Tongass temperate rain forest and the Alexander Archipelago. The waters here are home to an abundance of marine life such as sea lions, otters, seals and an array of birds. Almost nowhere else in Southeast Alaska can you see so many different animals that will all likely make an appearance.
Sitka is also a stop for whales and orcas which feed on a variety of abundant sea life. Some 200 to 300 humpbacks visit the ocean waters around Sitka from July to December, drawn by the rich feeding grounds, and often settle here after visits to Southeast's interior waterways. A few are year-round residents as several groups of them appear in early spring for the herring run.
Join in on a very small, intimate group of no more than six guests and explore Alaska's southeast waters aboard a 24-foot sea-worthy vessel with both an inside cabin and a forward and aft viewing deck. This allows for a truly personal experience as you explore coves, islands and search for an array of marine life.
This 2-hour tour will provide you with a local, knowledgeable guide who is a US Coast Guard licensed captain with years of experience who will lead you to the very best viewing options based on the days weather and conditions.
