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

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

We took the half-day Resurrection Bay itinerary. The crew was terrific, as was Ranger Tom. It wasn't their fault the weather was a bit chilly and rainy - they still managed to locate seals, sea otters, mountain goats and eagles on our trip. The food was pretty good, too. Would do this again, but probably not after August.

We took one of the last trips of the season under clear blue skies and 60's temps. The Captain called it "rolling seas", but it looked really smooth to us and only a couple of people had difficulty at the very beginning. The check in was well organized: tickets were clearly marked with assigned seats if one had opted for... More

Was able to tick all the boxes for seeing the animals lots of opportunity to take pictures. Barely had time to enjoy the meal before they were announcing whales off the starboard side. Park ranger was very friendly and informative. Would recommend to anyone.

We drove to Seward from Anchorage which was a beautiful drive. We checked in and boarded the ship with ease.The 5 hour cruise went through the beautiful Kenai Fjords on Resurrection Bay. The Ranger had so much information about the wildlife along the way and was quick to point out sea otters, young eagles, jellyfish, glaciers, humpback whales and more!... More

Everything was up to our expectations, including ease of boarding, calm waters and beautiful day, as well as seeing nearly every animal/creature we had hoped to see. The captain and especiallly the park ranger was very accommodating and interesting. They both definitely knew their subject and answered all questions put to them.

I can't think of a better way to spend a day exploring the Kenai Fjords National Park than by sea with Major Marine Tours! It was as relaxing as it was fun, educational and exciting. Not only will you experience the wonders of the park's glaciers, but you might get to see some marine life as well! On the particular... More
