Loved cruising the bay and viewing the wildlife. Recommend to all. My post trip photos were gorgeous in color. It was cold, so I would recommend dressing appropriately. We wish we had seen more whales.

This was organized by Major Marine Tours. The cruise was very pleasant -'the staff was very helpful and the National Park Ranger was knowledgeable. It was very well organized. Lunch was served - it was average esp the "all u can eat salmon" which was dry. The wildlife was a littl disappointing as all the wildlife was too far away... More

Knowledgeable guided boat tour. Probably would have preferred to take the longer 6 hour tour and be able to enter the Kenai Fjord national park, but we didn't have time since we were driving from Anchorage and took the 4 hour tour that started at 12.

Great scenery everywhere in Alaska. We enjoyed sitting by the bay in Seward AK. It is quiet and relaxing. There are benches along the waterfront trail in Seward.

Gorgeous water with an incredible view of the mountain range. Interesting how the fog rolls in over the water.

Just a beautiful area. The bay is surrounded by mountains and glaciers. We visited in July 2014 and the bay was teaming with wildlife. Beautiful wildflowers were in bloom as well. Just an amazing area.

Stunning views of mountains and water abound. It is important to be realistic - many days will be overcast. But wait for the clear (even if partially) days - you will be amazed by how beautiful the area is. Unlike other areas of the U.S., there is only one place to see this from - the town of Seward -...

Come and check out this 'hidden' treasure, near Miller's Landing. There are some great Bed and Breakfasts's here, including Angel's Rest.
