We booked the Resurrection Bay Tour in December for a tour in August. The office personnel indicated that the seas were rough and to make sure we took medication of needed, which we had. Upon arrival at the dock we were told to expect at least 12 ft swells at which point we decided not to take the tour. The... More

A group of 5 of us went on the wildlife tour and it was awesome! It was definitely the highlight of our trip. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The tour includes Seward history as well as sights of incredible wildlife. Although the crew told us that we were not guaranteed to see any wildlife, we saw so much... More

Took the 3 hour wildlife cruise around Resurrection Bay and thoroughly enjoyed it. The park ranger on the boat provided a ton of great information about the bay. The scenery was fantastic, definitely did not seem like 3 hours. Saw orcas, humpbacks, puffins and sea lions. Highly recommend this tour to see more of the bay than just what you... More

Our family of 5 went on the 5 hour wildlife cruise run by Major Marine. Unfortunately, we had booked way in advance to make sure we did not miss our opportunity due to the possibility of tours being sold out. If I could redo the experieince I would have waited and booked the day of the tour only if the... More

We took the 5 hour afternoon wildlife tour, and it was the highlight of our trip. Of course the scenery was fantastic, but you'll see that no matter who takes you out there. What made this special was the crew. The captain went out of his way to find wildlife to see. We were on the back end of the... More

It was a great trip. The crew were very friendly. I liked the "smack" of jellyfish. The captain let us spend time watching them and watching the whales.

We took the 7-hour Kenai Fjords tour with the buffet and thoroughly enjoyed it. We selected Major Marine because it was the only tour with a NPS Park Ranger on board who regaled us with lots of facts, especially since we were traveling with a 9-year old. There was an opportunity to earn a junior ranger badge. I heard some... More

Tripadvisor is a little confusing regarding the reviews and description of Major Marine boat tours out of Seward. The Resurrection Bay tour is the same tour as the Kenai Fjords National Park Tour which is a 4 or 5 hours cruise out of the Seward Boat Harbor. Resurrection Bay is the body of water surrounding Seward and the Kenai Fjords... More

We took the 6-hour trip and saw lots of wildlife, some very unusual. The captain, Nicole, had very sharp eyes, and spotted things others may have missed. She was quite skilled at maneuvering the boat for passengers to see wildlife, while avoiding disrupting the animals. The Ranger on board, Doug, shared many interesting details about the wildlife, the area, and... More
