Responsible Tourism

We are the only company in Alaska awarded a Responsible Whale Watching Certificate by the World Cetacean Alliance (WCA). This is awarded to whale and dolphin watching companies that operate to the highest standards of care for local wildlife, sustainability, and customer experience. Based on the WCA Global Guidelines this certification is the only international label for whale watching companies developed by the industry, for the industry.

We also partner with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 

Administration's (NOAA) organization called Whale SENSE which promotes additional guidelines for watching whales above and beyond the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

We proudly dedicate 5% of our profits to the following local non-profit organizations the Alaska Raptor Center & the Alaska Whale Foundation.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“Neil and Karen took my daughter and myself for an afternoon of incredible memories. We found a pod of whales feeding close to Sitka. We could hear the whales before seeing them on the surface because Neil is the only tour operator using an underwater microphone to hear the whales as well. We saw breaching, bubble feeding, playing, etc. from the whales. I can not express enough how this trip will make your visit to Sitka worth the trip alone. Neil is knowledgeable, kind, and best of all gets you next to what you are here to see. WHALES! BOOK TODAY! You will not regret it!.”
