Owner description: 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.

It is had to describe how nice this tour was. We stayed all the time in the outside deck watching the wildlife. We saw orcas, gay whales, humpback whales, dolphins, porpoises, cute sea otters, mountain goats, stellar sea lions, puffins and other tons of birds! We thought that we were going to see one animal here and there... We were... More

As I was planning my trip to Alaska one of the biggest questions was what to do with my time. I knew I wanted to try to get to Denali National Park if the weather looked good, and I would be spending time in my home town of Eagle River and nearby Anchorage. Another town was luring too, since a... More

My family really enjoyed this trip. We got a chance to see an amazing variety of marine life including: puffins, orcas, humpback whales, seals, and bald eagles. My favorite was getting up close to glaciers to watch them calve. The boat was very comfortable. You can roam free inside and out and leave your pack at a table. They had... More

Had a great time. Excellent company who offered to refund or reschedule due to inclement weather. So glad we rescheduled. The Northern Fjords are gorgeous.

I went on the 6.5 hour cruise with my Intrepid tour group while in Seward. It was such an amazing experience, and worth every dollar I paid! The boat was clean and while it seemed to be mostly at full capacity I could always find a seat at a window inside or a spot to get the perfect photo opportunity... More

We did the 6 hour Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise including the salmon/prime rib buffet lunch in June. We arrived into Seward early that morning on our cruise ship and got a $5 taxi to the Major Marine office. They tagged our luggage and took it to the railway station and lodged it for us as we would only be... More

It had been raining most of our trip to Anchorage and Seward, but the weather was perfect for our cruise. The captain was very knowledgeable about the area and made sure we saw everything there was to see. We saw just about every kind of wildlife promised, even a humpback whale, even though it was late in the season. The... More

The cruise we went on was a four hour one. The captain did a great job the entire time of pointing out various animal sightings, as well as telling us more about the animals and the areas that we were sailing in to. We saw a few whales, porpoises, sea lions, along with many other animals. Definitely worth the trip!... More

We took this cruise during the last week it was offered. While the weather was rainy and cool, the captain did a great job attempting to locate any wildlife that may be visible. The park ranger did an excellent job with providing a history of the area and information about all wildlife seen. The food was good and plentiful. The... More
