Small boat harbor and commercial boat harbor is a gateway to the Kenai National Park. Great views and plenty of nice places to take walks, see boats and eat lunch.

This is absolutely a beautify cruise. Lots of wildlife and the glacier is stunning. The ride around the horn can be a bit choppy if the water is rough and the wind is blowing.
