7 Whale Watching Adventures You Can Only Have in Alaska

Whales are elusive creatures, often hiding in remote parts of the ocean and avoiding humans altogether. But luckily for us, they have to come to the surface to breathe and give us a chance to see these giants of the sea. Alaskan waters house several different kinds of whales, most commonly playful orcas and mammoth humpbacks but also minke, Gray and Beluga whales. Watch whales play and breach in nature’s greatest show!
