I never realized we had fjord that were as lovely as Norway!! The view changes every few minutes as you move through and you really get a sense of how huge it is.

This protected bay is just incredible. A beautiful long, stretch of beach with great stones, shells, birds and wildlife. We've been before and have seen sea otters and jumping salmon. One of my favorite places so far in Alaska.

Took a 5 hour boat trip on the bay and it was something I'll never forget. The scenery is spectacular and we saw several types of whales, sea otters, birds... If you like calm water, the bay is trip for you, very calm and peaceful.

This Bay was a major part of our Kenai Fjord cruise from Seward... This place is a goldmine for wildlife, including orcas, humpback whales, sea otters, sea lions, seals, bald eagles and kittihawks.. We also spotted mountain goats up on the cliffs... The Bay is beautiful.

Seward is truly beautiful and unique place to visit. It smells like the ocean, crystal aqua waters, waterfalls, and backed uo with incredible views of the mountains/ glaciers.

Beautiful with tons to do and see. People are very friendly and helpful. Great for all ages with so much to do. Exciting wildlife everywhere, we saw otters and Eagles just from sitting on the shore. Mountains in the back make for breathtaking views. Definitely have to see for yourself.

We started with a "fast" boat trip to fox Island. The Captain really put the gas to it which if you're thinking of sitting outside it can get very cold,,,,even in August. The food was not bad at Fox Island but not like you might be use to from the cruise. The rest of the trip was the best beautiful... More

KenaiFjords Tour Company out of Seward Alaska. Great time. We saw otters, dolfins, puffins, bald eagles, and amazing little coves. The sun on the glacier was spectacular. Great naturalist on board. Can't say enough.
