Gastineau Guiding Company

Small-group, fully-guided Juneau whale watching and Mendenhall Glacier tours for the adventurous cruising traveler.

Award winning photo safari tours, unique wildlife excursions by land and sea, hands-on citizen science adventures (as seen on CNN), guided day hikes, alpine treks and nature walks - all set within the wilds of the Tongass National Forest. These are not typical tours, but rather inspired wilderness experiences for travelers seeking adventure and authenticity. We pride ourselves on our commitment to quality interpretation, small group sizes, and a personal touch from a guide who loves to share stories and insights on the last great temperate rainforest. Choose from one of the following 5 excursions offered below:

* Whale Watching & Mendenhall Glacier Photo Safari
* Alaska's Whales, Glaciers & Rainforest Trails
* Discover Alaska's Whales
