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.

I live in Alaska and I’ve boated in Resurrection Bay many and I tend to take the magnificent surroundings and abundant wildlife for granted at times. We took out of town guests, (Ohio), on this tour and it was a wonderful reminder of how beautiful this state really is. We spent quite a bit of time watching a pod of... More

It was a great trip. The whole experience from start to finish was wonderful. The Captain and crew went out of their way to make sure everyone had a good time. When it was all said and done we saw just about every animal that was listed in their brochure

We very much enjoyed the captain's willingness to get us as close to the sights on the bay and the guide's knowledge was shared readily and clearly. All of the personnel were friendly and helpful. Thanks very much.

We went on the 6 hour tour. Even though it was cloudy and rainy, our captain put us on orcas, humpback whales, puffins, mountain goats, and sea otters. We chose to forego the buffet and brought our own food. Our ranger was really good and informative. Even though I live here, I enjoyed my cruise and it reminds me why... More

We took the wildlife tour with Major Marine Tours and had a good time. We saw quite a lot of wildlife including a couple of humpback whales. The weather was rainy. The sea was a little rough but the staff did a great job of making the trip the best it could be. Only downside is because of the fog... More

We saw a couple of orcas but from afar really. rest of the trip wasn't interesting to me and it felt like time is dragging. so basically you have to put up with 5 hours of fillers for 10min of glimpsing a whale. I got bored on the way back and slept. The smell of the fuel made me feel... More

It was beautiful weather and I saw so many animals, birds and sealife. I have taken this cruise 4 times and enjoy it every time. The Park Ranger is very informative and the crew is helpful and friendly. This is one of your "must dos" while in Seward.

Went out on the last day of grey whale watching. The gray whales never showed but there were a couple of humpbacks. The real treat was the diversity of wild life present and the amazing scenery. There were Stellar sea lions, Dall's porpoises, a very lost Atlantic bottle nose dolphin, puffins, otters and hundreds of sea birds. The staff were... More

We have been to Alaska many times over the past 10 years. The Major Marine Fjords Cruise was the highlight of our most recent visit to the Seward area. Professional and well trained staff attended to our every needs. They took the time to seek out wildlife and stop the boat when necessary for a better view. Comfortable cabin seating... More
