Whale Watching in Glacier Bay & Icy Straits

Whale watching in Glacier Bay Alaska
Humpback whales are a treasure of this unique area...

Many people who travel to Glacier Bay and Gustavus come to see the whales!

To view one of earth's most magnificent creatures is an absolutely exhilarating experience!

In addition to the ever popular Humpbacks, other species of whales including Greys, Minkes, and Orcas and many other fascinating marine animals are commonly seen in these southeast Alaskan waters of Glacier Bay and surrounding Icy Straits.

Only a few dozen Humpback whales stay around all year, but between June and September many more come here to feed.

The whales are here primarily to revel in the nutrient rich waters before migrating back to Hawaii and other far away places for the winter. Blows, backs and flukes are very common, but often so are breaches and lunge feeding, and for the very lucky to witness, bubblenetting!

Bubblenetting is when a group of whales work together, circling a school of small fish using air bubbles. Then, at the same time, coordinated through vocalization, the whales rise through the middle of the trapped fish with their mouths wide open capturing their prey.

This is truly an amazing sight in nature and Southeast Alaska is the place to see it!
