Juneau’s New Whale Statue

Here’s a sight to put on your Juneau travel itinerary!  Juneau’s new river walk and whale statue shouldn’t be missed.  Located at the north end of town right on Gastineau Channel, this charming river walk perfectly surrounds the fabulous statue of a breaching humpback whale.

The whale is so lifelike it seems to be in motion and the fountain was designed to spray off the body and pectoral fins exactly as it does in nature.

There is no entrance fee.  It’s just Juneau’s way of sharing our wonderful wildlife an natural beauty with our visitors.

This is something that should not be missed while you’re visiting our corner of heaven!
