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.

We were fortunate to have wonderful weather. The boat was comfortable and the commentary good. The food served on the island was good, but the crab was a disappointment as it was cold. Should have skipped it.

much better than the typical boat tours, you get away from the typical tourist, and you get a little workout with it

I chartered the boat with this company and we stopped at this adorable little island for lunch. The indoor seating is almost designed like a mess hall to accommodate the large groups and the lectures/screenings they provide while you are there. They also have outdoor seating which was better, however they should NOT have the ashtrays out there on the... More

The crab was cold and not fresh. The view was excellent and so was the prime rib. The crab killed it for me though. I am from Alaska and the crab was a bad representation of Alaska.

I visited there in summer right before the season closed. The staff were very welcoming and food was so delicious (all cooked from scratch in their kitchen) starting from lunch to dinner and breakfast. Everything was very fresh and I was really impressed with the chef they had there. You won't be disappointed. Also they had s'mores time after dinner... More

What a great way to spend a night in Kenai Fjords. It is affordable, the kayaking is fantastic, and the remote beachfront cabins are all you need to enjoy this gem prior to your Kenai Fjords cruise. The dinning was top notch.

Our Kenai Fjords Cruise to Fox Island was one of the hightlights of our trip to Alaska. We saw wildlife on the way to the island including orca whale, dall porpoise, otters, sea lions, bald eagle, and puffins. We loved getting up close to the glaciers and watched them crash into the ocean. The trip was cold so be sure... More

Loved the Kenai Fjords tour and dinner at Fox Island. Captain Steve made our day. This tour was well worth the cost!
