I assume the humpbacks are feeding too when they are in the channel. Or are they?


They are. Most of the time it will be in summer. There are hundreds of humpbacks and if you are on a cruise, it's guaranteed sightings. Orcas, plentiful but much more stealthy. They call them seawolves for a reason

That is awesome. i can't wait for my Alaska cruise this summer.



You will see some awesome stuff. If you like whalewatching, and don't see many close up sightings form the ship, take one of the excursions from Juneau. They only last about three hours and guaranteed to see humpbacks.

We can usually see them from the road north of town any time we drive out.

re: Orcas in the channel
There is a recently (past 20 years) discovered behavior called bubble net feeding. It's where the whales circle a large group of herring and make a net of bubbles, keeping the herring in one spot. They lunge to the surface with their mouths open, in a group. It's spectacular.
