Your whale watching tour will most likely leave from Auke Bay, about 12 miles northwest of Juneau. Whale watching boat sizes vary; the smallest hold just a few passengers, while larger high-speed catamarans can carry over 100 people. Take a moment to enjoy the spectacular scenery; there will be time enough on your tour to watch for whale blows.
