    What Gypsy said - you'll see them although peak season for humpbacks is supposed to be June thru August according to the whales.

    May has the Gray Whale migration

    And I agree that May is the beginning of cruise season it will be less expensive and cold but you run the risk of tour operators not starting yet.

    May is the very start of the Alaska cruise season because it's when the ice melts to allow access. It's still pretty cold. But if you can handle that, it's a good time to see whales.
