Types Of Whales You May See on Alaska Whale Watching Tours

Humpback Whale

This is one of the most common whales in Alaska. Some people have seen these whales late into the winter months, but most migrate to the warm waters of Hawaii. The humpback whale and the Orca whales do most of the show boating in the Alaskan bays by breaching very high off the surface.

Best Viewing Time / April 15th to Oct

Orca Whale

Most all of us have seen the movie Orca so we think of this whale as the Killer Whale. They could have got that nick name because the Orca whale will eat birds, fish, seals, basically anything that smaller than them. They can grow to about 30 foot long with a average of a 5 foot dorsal fin on the adult whales. Most Orcas travel in pods like dolphins and have been clocked at speeds over 25 mph.

Viewing Time / Year-round

Gray Whale

Gray whales, also called grey whales, have whitish blotches on them. A baby can weigh around 1,500 pounds, and adults can weigh over 45 tons and reach a length of 50 feet. Because the gray whale is so big, it came close to extinction by whalers intercepting them during their migration, or in their breeding lagoons. By the early 20th century, there were only 2,000 or so gray whales left. Since protection from commercial whaling in 1946, numbers have climbed to about 20,000. Now in the 21st century we all get a chance to see them. Short window book now!

Viewing Time March – May

Fin Whale

Fin whales, also known as finback whales, are one of the fastest of all the whales, capable of speeds of up to 20 + mph. They can be found in all oceans, and feed on small fish and shrimp. They also stay in very small pods, but would rather travel alone.

Viewing Time: May – September

Minke Whale

Minke whales are the most abundant, travel in very small pods, and grow to about 25 feet. They are the opposite of the Humpback whale in many ways, for instance, Minke whales are shy and travel slow.

Best Viewing Time: May – September
