Whale Watching in Alaska January 16, 2015 Ted Palmer Share No Alaskan vacation is complete without taking a whale watching tour. Seeing these massive mammals (the largest on Earth) is an unforgettable experience that you and your family can’t miss. From small yachts to enormous cruise ships, Alaska offers several different opportunities to see these majestic creatures in action. Locations in Alaska like Whittier, Homer, and Seward are prime locations for whale watching and are easily accessed with your RV rental from A&M RV Center. What You’ll Encounter If you’ve never seen this part of the country, get ready for a real treat. Each spring, gray whales can be spotted as they migrate north along the Alaskan coast to the nutrient- rich Arctic Ocean to birth and feed their new calves. Other whales including the orca (killer whale) and humpback species can be seen more frequently in summer time. Whales aren’t the only mammals that have adapted to aquatic life in this extreme region. Seals, sea lions, and walruses can all be seen cavorting about in the icy water as well. Don’t miss your chance to see this gorgeous yet fragile ecosystem in action before it melts away. Remember these animals may be cute, but they are all wild and should be treated with caution and respect. Whales familiarizing themselves with humans could lead to further decimation of populations. As they become more comfortable with people, they could approach the wrong person and end up as a new rug or ornament.
