Route map for the day trip from Juneau to Hoonah

Depart the Juneau Ferry Terminal for a three-hour-and-fifteen-minute voyage to Hoonah. The ferry route wends through Icy Strait, where underwater land formations and strong tidal currents create Alaska’s most active whale feeding area. Keep your binoculars handy for the chance to see a variety of marine mammals, including Humpback whales, Minke whales, Orcas, Stellar sea lions, sea otters, Dall porpoises, and harbor porpoises. In the summer of 2007, a record 161 individual humpback whales were identified near Hoonah in the Point Adolphus and Glacier Bay Area.
