Whale Tails & Ales


4.5 hours

Juneau is world renowned for two things: whales and ales!

Enjoy Juneau like the locals! This exclusive combo tour combines the best of the city—a whale watching adventure followed by a tasting of some of our favorite Alaskan ales. 

Start your adventure downtown, where a local tour bus will pick you up and take you on a scenic drive through Juneau to Auke Bay. Board one of our comfortable jet boats and let the captain and naturalist lead the way on an unforgettable search for whales in Favorite Channel, Stephens Passage, Lynn Canal, or Saginaw Channel.

Grab a pair of binoculars, which we provide, so you can better see the humpbacks, killer whales, Dall’s porpoises, harbor seals, Steller sea lions, bald eagles, and towering mountains. Heads up: your heart might skip more than a few beats when you the whales. It’s a sight like no other!

The next stop is the renowned Alaskan Brewing Company for an exclusive taste of Alaska! Learn about the history of the brewery and how beer is made, view the original brewing system, browse the collection of artifacts from Alaska’s brewing history, and best of all, meet the Brew Crew while sampling their award-winning work!

With up to 10 taps, samples may include Alaskan Amber, Alaskan White Ale, Freeride APA, and at least one Limited Edition Pilot Series or Rough Draft brew. After the tasting, take home your complimentary tasting glass. Tasting is for adults 21 and over only; don’t forget your ID!

Included in the price of the tour are onboard refreshments including bottled water, coffee, hot chocolate, and a small snack of locally caught Alaskan salmon spread on a fresh bagel, as well as tastings at the Alaskan Brewing Co.
