Whale watching in Alaska is fun, accessible and…exciting! Whether you want to go whale watching for orcas, humpbacks, grays or beluga whales, most Alaska whale watching tours are just an easy day cruise away. You can enjoy marine wildlife with whale watching from Seward in Kenai Fjords National Park.
Orcas live in the waters surrounding coastal Alaska including outside Seward, near Kodiak, in Whittier’s Prince William Sound, in Glacier Bay, Icy Straight and in Alaska’s Inside Passage. Every spring, gray whales migrate through Alaska’s waterways on their way to their summer feeding grounds in the Bering and Chukchi Seas in the Arctic Ocean. Belugas can be found outside of Anchorage in the Turnagain Arm and humpbacks are plentiful outside of Juneau.
