Hello and welcome to Jayleen’s Alaska!

My name is Jayleen Bydlon (formerly Jayleen Beedle).

I am also looking to support and hire other women in the role of captain. By choosing to start Jayleen’s Alaska my team and I hope to share with each passenger the inspiring landscape and wildlife that is such a huge part of my life.

Being a professional photographer, we can be a pretty demanding group…and picky! The days we spent with Jayleen will live in our minds forever and currently have me replacing my old whale photographs (which I thought were good) with the ones we just came back with. At one point, the whales were so close that our long lenses were beyond their minimum focus, so we just put our cameras down and watched in awe. And oh….Orcas on the way home. Perfect.

An 8 – 16 person boat filled with people jockeying for a whale-viewing vantage point did not appeal, and when I found “Jayleen’s Alaska” through Google, it felt right. Six people max, with an option for a custom tour. Perfect. Captain Jayleen looks even younger in person than she does in her picture, and on learning her story, it’s easy to figure out why: the whales keep her and first mate Emily young and curious and ever-wondering at what these magnificent creatures will do next.Read More

This wonderful adventure will forever be embedded in our minds and hearts. Jayleen is the “Whale Whisperer.” Her assistant, Emily was terrific. Both are so knowledgeable of whales. We had so much fun and took so many pictures nature, different seals, and many many whales. Only four guest on our cruise plus Jayleen & Emily. Felt so personal. Nice, clean, and comfortable boat. We ARE GOING BACK and only with Jayleen’s Alaska Tour. Get her book, ALASKA’S WATCHABLE WHALES, Humpbacks and Killer Whales!Read More
