A recent TripAdvisor testimonial: “We researched whale watching excursion opportunities in Juneau and kept seeing Harv and Marv's coming up as the go to company to book with. We learned that their reputation was well warranted. We went out on a twelve passenger boat with a captain and an interpreter. While whale watching excursions do not typically include orca viewing, our first stop was near a pod of orcas that the captain had discovered earlier in the day.” Beccaspapa2016, Memphis, Tennessee, August 2016
Harv and Marv’s fleet of comfortable, heated boats are small enough to give visitors a more personalized experience. Large windows give all passengers great viewing. The sightseeing tour usually has six to fourteen people on board and is vastly different than tours on one of the big boats and much better—like going out on a boat with friends. Daily Alaska whale watching trips launch from Auke Bay and cruise ship passengers are provided transportation from the downtown Juneau docks.
Captain Jay Beedle, and Captain Pete Nelson started the operation, as commercial fisherman, tour operators, charter fisherman, divers, surveyors, patrol vessel captain and pilots. They have an unprecedented amount of local knowledge and untold experiences to share with those lucky enough to join them on one of their tours—as do all of the Harv and Marv’s boat captains. Beedle and Nelson founded Harv and Marv’s in the Late 1990’s. Professionally, Beedle is the “Marv” of Marv and Harv’s Outback Alaska. “Harv” is Captain Pete Nelson.
