Juneau, Alaska

Many people are drawn to Alaska for its whale watching and the most commonly seen whales are the humpback and orcas. Although you don’t actually have to set foot on a boat to see these magnificent creatures, as you can catch glimpses of them from the shore, the best view will always be from the sea.

Visitors can see Humpbacks within a few minutes of the port of Auke Bay, so it's a must-do activity for those heading to Alaska on a superyacht. It is harder to guarantee sightings of orcas, but they are known for congregating off Juneau, and the inside passage is where you are most likely to find them.
