Wildlife Tours in Alaska

Alaska’s landscape may be dramatic, but its animals will make just as big an impact. You’ll naturally see loads of wildlife, whatever tour you take. But these are our best Alaska wildlife tours - whether you’re looking for whales, bears, or bald eagles. 

Obviously, whales top the animal charts in these parts. Can you imagine anything better than spotting whales breaching the surface of the icy water and interacting with other members of their pod? If that sounds appealing, then you could try our Whale Watching Tour from Juneau. One of our most popular Alaska wildlife tours, you’ll be guaranteed a humpback whale sighting, but you’re also likely to see other favorites, including sea lions, orcas, and seals.

For the bear lovers amongst you, our Neets Bay Bear Watch tour is custom-designed to get you as close to Alaska’s intimidating yet mesmerizing black bears as possible. Enjoy a boat ride through the beautiful islands near Ketchikan on your way to Neets Bay Creek, home to a pack of wild black bears. Hike through the woods to catch sight of them expertly hunting for salmon by hand. This tour is incredibly popular, so make sure to book your place early. 

From Skagway, you could join a Scenic River Float Tour, where you’ll gently float along the pretty Taiya River. Soak up the sounds of the Alaskan wilderness as you catch sight of the former Gold Rush town of Dyea and the Chilkoot Trail, which prospectors followed towards their future fortune in the Yukon. Of course, there will be all kinds of native wildlife too, from seals to all kinds of birdlife - amongst them, herons and bald eagles.
