Whale Watching Marine Tour in Sitka, Alaska

Explore the pristine and lively waters of Sitka Sound and the rugged, ancient coastlines of Baranof, Kruzof and the many islands surrounding Sitka aboard our 30’ cabin cruiser, the ideal vessel for adventuring in Southeast Alaska. Rate: • Per Person: $200 (minimum of 2.5 hours) This vessel takes up to 6 passengers, message me to book your seat now! What You Can Expect: Coming to the “Last Frontier” is an adventure in itself—Sitka is located on the western edge of Baranof Island, one of the thousands of islands in the Alexander Archipelago within the Gulf of Alaska—but once here venturing off the island into our many waterways, inlets and bays is the best way to make it an epic adventure. Here you’ll be immersed in a truly wild place, where you can experience Mother Nature in all her raw glory and observe animals up close and personal thriving in their natural habitats. This is a wildlife tour in the dynamic, real wilds of Alaska so of course, there are no guarantees as to what we’ll see each day (it’s part of the thrill) but here are some of the possibilities: Humpback whales bubble-net feeding or breaching, steller sea lions sunbathing, sea otters cracking crab or floating their babies on their bellies, orcas being their majestic selves and eagles and ocean birds such as puffins and cormorants fishing and nesting. You might also spot brown bear or deer on shore while we cruise past untouched beaches and mossy riverbanks. All this while surrounded by islets of lush, green old-growth forests, a dramatic (long dormant) volcano, granite peaks with rushing waterfalls and snow-covered mountains. It’s all very scenic and thrilling and our vessel, the Blue Dawg is just the kind of boat you want to be on for such an adventure. Not only is it a solid, Alaskan-built, aluminum, twin-engine, USCG approved, very seaworthy vessel, it’s perfect for wildlife and nature viewing in whatever weather with a comfortable heated cabin, large, fog-proof windows and bow and back decks. We offer this tour three times per day, with morning and afternoon departures. Either choice gives you enough time to stroll downtown Sitka before or after your tour. Or even better, take our Combo Tour and hop aboard our van before or after this tour to check out the most popular attractions on land, including Fortress of the Bear, Raptor Center, Totem Park and historic downtown. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Send Booking Inquiry” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.

• Marine Wildlife Tour Guide • USCG Licensed 100 Ton Master • Whale Enthusiast A born and raised Sitkan and 4th generation Alaskan, Gary has spent a lifetime exploring Southeast Alaskan waters and honing his inner “wildlife radar.” If someone can find the whales out there, it’s him. Starting out learning to fish with his pioneering Alaska woman, Grandma Susie, he went on to work in commercial fishing and tour guiding, earning his captain’s license in 2003. It’s been full steam ahead ever since, working as a wildlife guide in Sitka during the busy summers and adventuring off the island in the winters. In 2016 he had the opportunity to purchase his own boat, the MV Blue Dawg, and venture out on his own. Cpt.Gary’s Sitka Adventures was born. Being the ‘captain of his own ship’ has allowed him to create the tour experience for his guests that he gets excited about—making it epic—and to share his love and knowledge of Sitka with people from around the world. As he says, “livin’ the dream.”
