    Watch humpback whales and other creatures cavorting in the nutrient-rich waters at Point Adolphus, one of Alaska's premier observation points.

    Depart for Point Adolphus on a boat specifically designed for watching whales and other marine life. On the way, a naturalist will describe the diversity of animals that converge here each summer. They come primarily to feed in the waters that are extraordinarily rich in halibut, salmon and plankton.

    Point Adolphus is noted for having the highest concentration of humpback whales in the Alaskan panhandle, so be on the lookout for these majestic and intelligent creatures. They will be breaching the water's surface, waving their flukes up and down as they dive, and feeding voraciously to fatten up for their winter migration south. It's a mesmerizing sight that you will not soon forget.

    Humpback whales; however, are but one species that congregate in the summer feeding grounds off Point Adolphus. You might also observe frolicking Dall's porpoises, Stellar Sea Lions, curious Harbor Seals and Orca whales. Picturesque Point Adolphus supports a huge concentration of sea life, much of it passing close to your tour boat. In addition, you may see graceful bald eagles swooping down to grab fish in their talons, and perhaps even bears and deer in the surrounding wooded landscape.

    Following your viewing time, you will cruise back to Icy Strait Point and your awaiting ship.

    Please note: This tour includes very limited walking, although there are stairs to negotiate for those who wish to sit on the open-air observation deck. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair and a companion to assist them. Those who are prone to sea sickness should take appropriate pre-emptive measures before commencing the tour. Flat, comfortable shoes with a non-slip sole are suggested and warm layered clothing and waterproof outerwear are recommended for those using the open-air observation deck. Don't forget your camera and binoculars. Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed.
