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.

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
