Grantley Moore (CAPTAIN)
Captain Grantley Moore has lived in Southeast Alaska most of his life. His enthusiasm, energy, and knowledge of the surrounding areas are what make his charters exceptional. Captain Grant and his team are locally raised and know the ins and outs of Juneau for the greatest whale watching, sightseeing, and sport fishing adventures. He has an eagle eye when spotting whales, and his favorite phrase is "FISH ON!”
We are thrilled to have Captain Nani on the team! She joined Moore Charters as a deckhand and has worked her way up to a captain’s position. Nani loves meeting people from all over the world and helping them check Alaska adventures off their bucket list. When asked what she would like guests to know about her, Captain Nani enthusiastically responded, "I love to kill fish!” Captain Nani was born and raised in Southeast Alaska and knows the waters well. When not fishing, Nani has dedicated her time to her studies at Pacific University and is currently studying for a doctorate in physical therapy.
Captain Wyatt was born in Sitka, Alaska, and has been with the Moore Charters team for nearly five years. When asked what he likes most about being a charter captain, he quickly responded "I never know what is going to happen on a charter. We can target a certain kind of fish, but we never truly know what kind of creature may come up on the end of the fishing line or what kind of show the whales will put on for us that day.” Wyatt is kindly referred to by co-workers as the "whale whisperer.” Wyatt’s enthusiasm is what guests enjoy the most about going on a charter with him. He captains the Equinox.
Captain Breckan is a fourth generation Juneauite, born and raised in the last frontier. Her favorite thing about being a charter captain is being with others who enjoy the water as much as she does. She loves catching fish that are good to eat, i.e., halibut, salmon, and rockfish, especially when they put up a good fight. Captain Breckan grew up on her father’s charter boat and started as a deckhand when she was 14. She obtained her 50-ton captain’s license when she was 20 years old. She brings enthusiasm for Juneau and fishing to each charter.
What we'll do
There’s a reason why whale watching is on so many people’s bucket list. There’s no sight more majestic than a humpback whale in the waters of Juneau.
Our boats are perfect for whale watching, and our local captains are familiar with the area and take you to the spots where you’re most likely to see whales. There are humpback whales, seals, porpoises, and even the occasional orca in the area. Go on an unforgettable whale watching adventure with us and see Alaska’s wildlife up close.
Our small-group trips mean that you get the best view, plus our friendly crew can share stories about the area and its wildlife.
If you’re visiting on an Alaska cruise ship shore excursion, our trips are tailored to get you straight to the heart of the action and then back to the boat in a timely fashion.
