Default Which telephoto zoom to purchase for Nikon

Please advise on which telephoto zoom to purchase for Nikon. Will be doing wildlife photography. Already own 70-200. I am an amateur photographer and don't want to spend 6k on a lens. Thank you

Nikon D100. Will be shooting wildlife in Alaska from a small ship, also on land. Hopefully whales, seals, bears, birds, etc.

Nikon 70-300mm G. about 500 dollars. Should do the trick and not to expensive, but a bit shot for birds. But if you want some more reach the 80-400 for about 1300.
