One of the best things about living in Alaska is that you can get the chance to see and do things a lot of people don’t get to. How many people have the can easily drive to take an Orca Quest Cruise? How many people can witness the beauty of the tallest mountain in North America on any given day? Who can say they’ve have both a grizzly AND a black bear in their yard? One of the best things about this site is that I get to share the amazing last frontier with my readers!

A while back I took my sons on a Gray Whale watching tour, while the tour was great, we were skunked in the whale watching area. We saw sea otters, porpoises, lots of birds and even a few seals, no whales. That’s the luck of the draw though. I’ve been on whale watching tours where we encountered gray whales right in the harbor, right off the bat. I guess whale watching is a win some, lose some proposition.

But this summer we’re determined to see whales. So I’ve partnered with Major Marine Tours and we’re off on the only tour that takes you to the whales, the Orca Quest Tour. There’s no “set route” for this tour, you’re on the boat to do one thing and that’s go find Orcas. They talk with other boats and then actively seek out the orcas. Obviously all done from a very safe, for the whales and humans alike, distance!

The tours only take place for a very short time in May and June so if you’re interested in taking the Orca Quest Cruise you should definitely check their website and get a trip scheduled ASAP.
