Description: Major Marine Tours offers two thrilling full day cruises into the Kenai...
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.

Unique sights in a comfortable cruise with wonderful staff

The trip was great we got to sea sea lions, many whales and beautiful glaciers. Lunch was very good, we actually preferred the prime rib over the salmon.

There were approximately 25 people on board the small vessel taking us into the Kenai Fjords for a whole day. The sky was blue with not a cloud in the sky. We sailed out of the harbor and did not wait long before we saw humpbacks breaching. Dall porpoises appeared and chased alongside the boat. The sea was like a... More

This was my favorite thing on our Alaskan vacation. We paused near a glacier for around 20 minutes. Surrounded my several sea lions laying on the ice. The only sounds were the rumble of the glaciers and nature. Not to mention 4-5 whale sightings, sea otters, and ect. If you are going to Alaska and don't do this, then you... More

This tour was awesome! ! It was so professionally done! We saw Orcas we saw fin and humpback whales. The glaciers are so beautiful and the views were breathtaking. I would say this is a "must do" when in Seward. It was worth every penny for full day tour!

Highly recommended tour with lots of wild life and glaciers viewings. We saw a baby Orca, bald eagles, sea loins and for me the most interesting ones were Puffins. Crew was very good and friendly. Lunch is mediocre. Glacial ice margaritas were a nice touch. Over all 8/10 score.

Recently we took the 6 hour cruise from Seward. It was a great experience, with a National Park ranger giving insights into the sights we were seeing as well as the well informed captain adding his knowledge as well. Our tour saw fin whales, humpback whales, porpoises, sea lions, eagles, puffins as well as great views of a glacier calving... More

We boarded the Orca Song for a 7.5 hour wildlife and glacier tour and it was THE BEST DAY EVER! Calm seas, blue skies and the most wildlife they have seen on any tour this year. Great box lunch served. The National Park Interpretive Ranger Colleen was the best! She was very informative and great at spotting wildlife. Here is... More

My family took the Kenai Fjords Cruise run by Major Marine Tours in Seward, Alaska this June and we all had a fabulous time. The boat was very clean, comfortable and not at all crowded. Although we thought an 8-9 hour cruise might be too long, the day went all too quickly! We saw porpoises, sea otters, sea lions, puffins,... More
