Point Adolphus is considered to be one of Alaska's premier humpback whale watching destinations. Along the way you will be traveling through waters that support a wide array of marine life, including orca(killer whales), Steller's sealions, seal, porpoise, and of course the magnificent humpback whales. Along the shore, keep your eyes peeled for bald eagles in the evergreen treetops. Your onboard naturalist will describe the biology and behavior of the diverse species that gather here every summer to indulge in the nutrient rich waters, fueled by the long Alaska summer days. On the ride out you will be presented with a selection of Alaskan-style appetizers including seasonal seafood and caribou sausage complimented by a glass of wine (all included in the tour price). Alaskan Brewing Company beers and additional wine are available for purchase throughout your cruise. The whales are so plentiful at Point Adolphus that Icy Strait Point will give you a refund of $100 ($50 per child) if a whale is not spotted on the trip. Wearwarm layered clothing and a waterproof jacket if you want to enjoy the open-air observation deck. Weather conditions at Point Adolphus may change suddenly. And of course remember to bring your cameras, videocameras and binoculars!
