Juneau Adventures is a locally-owned and operated charter company, based in Juneau, Alaska. Owners, Terry and Lynn White have over 30 years of combined experience in the tourism industry.
Terry was born and raised in Juneau, spending much of his early life on the water with his family. He purchased his first boat when he was 20 years old and is knowledgeable about the waters of Southeast Alaska. Terry has worked on commercial fishing boats and obtained his United States Coast Guard Masters License in 1997.
Lynn is a “transplant”, but after 30 years, cannot imagine living anywhere else. Terry, Lynn and their two boys have spent hundreds of hours on the water and judge their summers by the amount of salmon, halibut, shrimp and crab they catch for the family freezer. “We love our Alaskan lifestyle and enjoy introducing visitors to the Alaska experience from a local’s perspective.”
Dano is a 32ft Armstrong Catamaran with twin 300hp outboards. She's fast, stable, comfortable, and has plenty of room for fishing, whale watching, and enjoying the beautiful Alaskan scenery. The walk around deck allows 360° fishing capability when halibut fishing. There is a large comfortable cabin with two forced air heaters and an enclosed restroom with a private entrance. In addition, there is a side entrance for easy boarding. "Dano" is the premier charter boat in Juneau.
Juneau is home to an abundance of wildlife. On the shore, you can see Sitka Black-Tailed Deer, black and brown bear, porcupine, beaver, marmot and mountain goats. Ravens, bald eagles, Arctic Tern, Scoters, and Harlequin Ducks are abundant here and our marine mammals include Humpback Whales, Dall’s Porpoise, Stellar Sea Lions, harbor seals, Orca whales and otter.
Humpback whales migrate from the waters surrounding Hawaii to the waters of the Inside Passage for a grand summer feast. Although they are typically solitary, when they reach Alaskan waters, they concentrate in groups, traveling and working cooperatively to feed. The highlight of any whale watch is witnessing the bubble feeding that occurs with the Humpback Whales in Southeast Alaska. Bubble feeding is synchronized swimming on a grand scale. Taking turns, one whale releases the bubble net, while the others gather beneath the trapped herring and then lunge through in a synchronized dance, surfacing at the same time.
