Whale Watching & Mendenhall Glacier Photo Safari

Capture everything from glaciers to whales on this excursion that features a professional photography guide. Travel in a media-equipped shuttle bus and aboard a customized safari boat as your guide provides expert interpretation while also sharing tips and techniques to enhance your images. By land, at Mendenhall Glacier, you'll be taken along a secluded moraine ecology trail. This gentle walk leads to beaver dams, salmon streams and remarkable glacier panoramas — sites to inspire your creative photography.


By sea, board a covered safari vessel for an unforgettable journey through the pristine waterways of Stephens Passage. Large panel windows open to give you unrestricted views, while your Captain safely maneuvers to give you the best angle on the shot. This excursion has never had a trip without a star-studded cast—often including humpback whales, sea lions, orcas, harbor seals, porcupines, eagles, salmon or even black bears. Whale sightings are guaranteed. See more of Alaska’s natural wonders as you strive to capture that 'magical moment' in the medium that’s worth a thousand words.


Note: Participants must be able to walk on their own for approximately 3/4 mile on an improved gravel trail. Raingear, umbrellas, camera towels, monopod walking sticks, bottled water and a snack are included. Wear comfortable walking shoes, dress in layers and bring your camera and plenty of film or digital capacity. Group size is limited to 14 participants to ensure a comfortable and interactive atmosphere. Children 12 and under receive a free waterproof kids camera. Each participant receives a complimentary instructional DVD with a photography tutorial and slideshow from Juneau’s best Photo Guides. Whale sightings are guaranteed or you’ll receive $100 cash back as you disembark the whale-watching vessel. All tour participants on this excursion are eligible to enter to win cash prizes in the tour operator's Capture Juneau Photo Contest.
