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. « less

For most of our group this was their first trip to Alaska so along with camping and fishing we wanted to make sure they saw wildlife and did some "touristy" things. This is where the evening dinner and wildlife cruise came in. First the dinner. It was dinner. Neither the salmon nor the prime rib offering were exceptional, but after... More

My daughter has her grandchildren here from California and invited me and one of her sons to accompany them on a sightseeing, whale watching and sometimes mountain goat viewing on the mountain sides surrounding Reserection Bay out of Seward, Alaska. As a near 30 year resident of Alaska I have gone on several cruises of this type out of Seward,... More

We are usually not very enthusiastic about day boat cruises but this is about the only way to see much of the otherwise inaccessible dramatic coastal scenery around Seward. It turned out to be an excellent day out. We were lucky to come across a pod of orcas and there was plenty of other wildlife along the way, with expert... More

The cruise it self was great. Employees very nice and we met some nice people that live close to our home town. UT How crazy is that? My son and I was sea sick for most of the trip but that was our own fault for not taking any meds to help. We laid down and it passed. We go... More

My wife and I had a great experience on this trip. The ship's crew was very knowledgeable, and the Captain made himself available to us. He deviated from the planned route by just a bit, but it was for our benefit: we got to see whales in action doing the bubble net feeding. Look that up on youtube, it's amazing.

We took the night cruise. We didn't see much wild life as expected. Highlight of the tour was a whale came out of nowhere for couple of second.

In July of 2013, my wife and I, along with another couple we knew from our home state of Massachusetts had a great Alaska evening cruise and dinner thanks to the professional staff and tour boat of the folks at Major Marine Tours-Kenai Fjords Cruise. In addition to a great meal (with second portions offered after everyone had their initial... More

I have taken this cruise twice - once in July 1995, and most recently in July 2013. The first time the weather was clear and it was the highlight of that visit to Alaska. The second time it was overcast and started raining, so it was mediocre at best. Major Marine Tours did an excellent job considering the weather
