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.

Had lots of company and booked three separate trips. Everyone was very happy and saw lots in Seward and enjoyed glaciers and hatchery in Whittier.

I took the Kenai Fjord Tour 27 years ago and I must say that it pales in comparison to the Major Marine Tour we took this year. I have never seen so much wild life in one tour in my life! The Captain and Crew were very friendly and excited about their jobs which made the whole experience even better.... More

We would not have seen what we did with shorter boat trips. We saw sea lions, bald eagles, a breeching whale, and the large vertical glaciers you can't see any other way. We thought the trip might be too long but it wasn't. The staff were very nice. Wear warm clothing.

We took the 5 hour trip. It was great. The crew was excellent, professional and and friendly. We didn't have the meal. We hope to take the longer trip the next time we are in Alaska.

The tour was fantastic, the staff was knowledgeable and super friendly. The ranger was extremly informative, she knew her stuff! The staff went above and beyond to make the whale watching experience worth while. I will defintiely recommend this tour in Seward! It made my vacation complete.

We had a great time. We saw orcas and humpback whales in addition to glaciers. The food was good. Staff was friendly. It was great to have a National Park ranger on board who provided information about wildlife, geology, and history of the area. The kids were also able to do the junior ranger program aboard.

The weather was perfect, the boat was well maintained and the crew was fabulous. The eight hour excursion went by really fast and we saw so much.
