Where do I find the whales?

Did you know we have several species of whales that live in or migrate through Seward? It’s possible to see Fin Whales, Grey Whales, and Minke Whales. However, our two most popular, and most viewable whales are the Humpback Whales and Killer Whales. While we can’t guarantee whales will be spotted on our tours, we’ve made some recommendations below that will increase your chances.
