Excellent buffet

The food was very good and was freshly prepared. The ranger's video presentation about the Kenai Fjords Nat. Pk. was excellent.

We stopped at the island for dinner as part of the 8 hour National Park cruise. The island was pretty and peaceful, and the stones were wonderfully flat and perfect for skipping! The salmon and prime rib buffet was nothing to get excited about. The salmon was dry and the beef was fatty.

Four adults and four kids ranging from 6-11. We went to fox island as part of our Austin Adventures Alaska tour. We stayed in a pleasant cabin and went sea kayaking, we also had a great dinner in the lodge. So in summary small island doesn't take much to cover it. But just to sit there in peace and watch...

Fairly expensive 2 night three day excursion, but well worth it except for the meals. The staff was great and the cabin was well appointed with a very comfy bed. Went on a full day kayak trip which was wonderful.. Our guide, Matt, couldn't have been any better. He was very knowledgeable and was sure to point out all the... More

We took a tour boat to Fox Island from Seward for lunch. It was a beautiful boat ride. Saw whales, seals, etc. When you get off the boat you go into a large room and everything is ready for an all you can eat buffet, serving salmon and prime rib. The food was very good. After you eat, you get... More

went on the kenai fjords boat tour to here. IT was a beautiful day for us. I could see it would not be as much fun if it were raining. The island itself is small. You walk up a boardwalk to the restaurant to get your buffet. The buffet had salmon, primerib and crab legs which were extra. The sides... More

I took a boat with the kids out to Fox Island. The views are great. The boat then circled the island and we saw more of the island. It's a great way to spend a day.

My daughter and grandkids went on the excursion to Fox Island as my son in law partook in some fishing. This particular day it was raining as Seward's area is known for it's rain. The room was packed full of travelers ready to board the ship. I would advise you to get their early so you can get your tickets... More

We left Seward in warm sunshine and were lucky that the day remained dry and clear - although it did get very cold! Lunch on Fox Island quite average but the day cruise around Resurrection Harbour was lovely and the Kenai Fjord Cruise staff very informative.
