When you read the adverts for excursions, on the ship and on the shore, you will find that they all have a get out clause, that is although they do everything they can to insure a sighting it cannot be guaranteed. Having said that we went in September, and it was the last cruise of that year. We had that best whale spotting trip ever out of Juneau, even the crew said that it was the best trip of the year. Even though it was showery it was fantastic and we were really close to several leviathans. Later on that cruise we went out of Victoria on Vancouver Island and were able to see all of the Killer Whales, Orca, in the area, I think it was 83 so for my money September. …. Neil.
They are wild creatures and not scheduled to appear on demand I'm afraid. Suggest you read up on Alaska and the various tours - only go to this site that I direct every one to - Try google and 'cruise ports call boards' - the first result will give you all the info under the Alaska section .
Like Neil and Ida we cruised Alaska in September and saw a tremendous number of whales, and again we were told that this was an excellent time for whale sightings. Not only did we see them on "Whale watch" trips but even saw several from on board our ship, swimming fairly close alongside.so there you have 2 recommendations for September!Cynthia.
