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

From the moment we started our voyage we could tell it was going to be great. Our captain Justin was fun loving and had a great crew. You could tell he loved his job. He was quick to find many animals. This cruise line has an added bonus of a ranger and extra staff person from the national parks (Randy... More

This was the best experience ever! This was the first trip to Alaska for my husband and I. We decided to take this excursion prior to a cruise from Seward. We had a fabulous trip! Not only did we see humpback and orca whales, but we also saw porpoises, seals, sealions, puffins, mountain goats, and other wildlife. The staff was... More

This is the second year in a row that I took the 71/2 hour boat tour with Major Marine out of Seward,Alaska. This is a great trip! The boat crew does an excellent job of finding wildlife and gives you plenty of time to enjoy seeing the wildlife and to take pictures. There is also a Park Ranger on board... More

God blessed us with perfect weather and abundant sea life. From orcas to humpback whales, sea otter to sea lions, eagles to puffins. Our Lady Captain was perfect, from finding all the good stuff to an unbelievable return to the dock. Did I mention the prime rib lunch, EXCELLANT. Hard to believe that a sight seeing trip would be anything... More

First off the price for this crews is amazing! The food is amazing! The service extraordinary! We seriously couldn't have asked for more to see. We seen Humpback Whales, Pourpose(dolfin like creatures)Puffen,Kiddie Wakes and Otters. The best part was watching the whales lunge out of the water. We will be coming back almost every single year. Thank you Major Marine... More

Major Marine tours is my go to tour company. This company is amazingly consistent with their professional and fun-filled tours. I've used and recommended them to family and friends for many years and everyone is very impressed and satisfied with the tour. This year we were treated to blue skies and warm sun,somewhat rare for coastal Alaska, plus we saw... More

From perfect weather to an epic viewing of sea life and land critters, this was the best whale watching trek I could have wanted. The staff was courteous and very helpful and knowledgeable. The captain was very skilled in seeking out what he knew the passengers would want to see, not to mention his skill in bringing us right up... More

Awesome! We took the 7 1/2-hour Kenai Fjord tour and we observed several animals such as orcas, whales, sea lions, puffins ... The weather was beautiful and the water was calm. It was incredible to hear the sound of glaciers! We had a margarita with ice from the glaciers! The Captain and the National Park Ranger did a great job!
