Orca Quest Cruise

Language: English

Duration: 4 hours

Tour Highlights

  • Look for orcas in Alaska during the peak season for orca whale watching. Rather than following a defined path, go where the orcas have recently been observed; every day is a different excursion!
  • Humpback whales, Steller sea lions, harbor seals, Dall's porpoises, sea otters, bald eagles, and seagulls may also be seen in addition to orcas.

Tour Overview

Orcas visit the waters outside of Seward in search of food from mid-May until mid-June. Join this excursion for an unforgettable day on the water as you search for orcas during peak orca season. The huge dorsal fins, which can grow up to six feet tall, and the complex social habits of these extraordinary marine mammals set them apart.

To increase your chances of spotting orcas, your expert captains will investigate the area's orca hot locations and communicate with other vessels about recent sightings. Our skilled captains will provide narration throughout the tour so you can learn all about the whales. If conditions permit, listen to the animals' haunting sounds using the onboard hydrophone.
