Juneau Job Openings

In Juneau, we conduct three highly-acclaimed tour programs: the Whale Watching & Wildlife Quest (3 hour cruise), the Evening Whale Quest (2.5 hour cruise), and the Tracy Arm & Glacier Explorer (5 hour cruise).  Our whale watching cruises are often "packaged" with other popular Juneau attractions, such as the Mendenhall Glacier and/or the Orca Point Lodge Salmon Bake.  Our tours are designed to explore, observe and learn about the natural history and wildlife of Southeast Alaska.

We presently operate eight vessels based in Juneau.  They are all high-speed, waterjet-powered catamarans (built in our own Sitka shipyard) that have been specially designed to enhance our guest's comfort and tour experience.  All Juneau-based vessels are rated to carry up to 150-passengers, and they typically operate with a 6-person crew: a captain, a lead deckhand, a naturalist and three passenger service crew.  Many of our crew and support staff return to work with us for several seasons,
and many do similar "outdoor adventure" jobs, in other parts of the world, during our off-season months.
