Description: Major Marine Tours offers two thrilling full day cruises into the Kenai...
Major Marine Tours offers two thrilling full day cruises into the Kenai Fjords National Park, where wildlife is abundant and tidewater glaciers are massive. Covering 120 miles, you can choose between a 6 hour or 7.5 hour tour, and all trips are hosted by a National Park Ranger. At the glaciers you'll often witness calving - a process by which glaciers shed giant blocks of ancient ice. This area is also home to a wide variety of animals including whales, sea lions, seals and sea otters, as well as an abundance of birds including puffins and eagles. You can enhance your experience with our Alaska salmon and prime rib buffet, freshly prepared on board the vessel. All guests are guaranteed reserved seating inside our heated cabins.

What an AMAZING memory!! We had the best weather of the summer and saw so much wildlife! After reading several reviews and talking to folks, everyone said take the longer trip to Northwestern Fjord. SOO worth it!! To start out the trip the captain asked if there were any wildlife requests and we were lucky enough to find them all!... More

We took the 6 hour cruise and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were able to see Puffins, Humpback Whales, Harbor Seals, Sea Lions, Sea Otters and even a very unlikely Sunfish. We cruised past beautiful Glaciers and pulled right up to the Aeilik Glacier and got to watch some relatively active calving from this tide water glacier. Having a Park Ranger... More

This was one of our vacation highlights. We saw amazing wild life including 4 humpback whales. Having Deb a park ranger made it even more fun and educational. Captain followed whales for us and found bald eagles as well. Lunch was good and crew friendly. Worth the money

We took the 9 hour cruise out to Northwestern Fjord. It was wonderful. We saw so much wildlife. The captain and mate were wonderful, helpful. The lunch they served was so good. They did not cut corners. If you think you might get sea sick definitely take some Dramamine. This cruise takes only about 35 people so it has a... More

We debated long and hard before settling down on the 7.5 hr cruise, we felt like that is a good balance since we have young children and we didn't do the typical 7 days Alaska cruise. We lucked out with a perfect sea day, the sea was perfectly calm from my perspective but a few passengers still got seasick. This... More

My husband, 2 daughters and I took an 8.5 hour boat cruise (about 50 passengers total on board) through the Kenai Fjords area. The scenery was breath taking- lots of glaciers (we got really close to some of them), fjords, unusual giant rock formations, etc. We saw plenty of wildlife too- sea otters, seals, dall porpoise, puffins, humpback whales, and...

A beautiful day and a very informational cruise. Lots of information about glaciers and was really cool to visit a Rookery of Kittiwake.

What a wonderful sight seeing event! The crew was friendly and informed and willing to answer questions. The boat was large and stable with an inside cabin and 2 outside areas to stand and sit from which to take pics. We saw whales, otters, eagles, puffins, terns etc, porpoises and dolphins. The glaciers were remarkable and we were able to... More

We took the 6 hour cruise from Seward. Not only did we view glaciers, but we saw so many kinds of wildlife that there were too many to count. Whales, otters, seals, marine birds, bald eagles, puffins, porpoises, etc. The boat was smaller and very comfortable. The buffet lunch of salmon and prime beef was very good. The staff was... More

I so much enjoyed the 7 hour /2 Glacier tour. This tour was a smaller boat with less crowds. We saw lots of sealife, whales, otters, puffins, seals, orcas, porpoises. You have reserved seating in the heated cabin however we stayed outside on the deck because we didn't want to miss a thing. I highly recommend this tour. If I... More
