we went and it was during a rainy period… decided to take the boat at night and opted NOT to get the dinner. although the staff tried so hard to make sure people were comfortable and taken care of (meal time, etc), the food did not look that great to me. it was only 20 for the added dinner, so...

Completed the 5 hour tour with my 9 year old. I had some questions before the cruise so I sent an email a few days ahead. I was sent a very prompt and helpful reply. We did not purchase the buffet of salmon or prime rib so we brought our own snacks on board. I really liked that we had... More

We took the later cruise since it never gets dark in July. The advantage of the later cruise is that it is less crowded. I believe this is because there are typically no cruise ships and cruise people on the later tour due to them having to be back at port by then but I am not 100% sure why... More

Incredible tour. Great Crew and the Capitan, Melissa I think, was wonderful. We saw calving glaciers, pods of whales, puffins, seals...porpoises. The ranger was terrific and very knowledgeable. We had the lunch, salmon and roast beef...also very good. The boat has an underwater mike and we hear the whales singing. It was incredible.

My husband and I just returned from taking the Major Marine 3 hour tour in Resurrection Bay and it was great. We booked it last minute yesterday because we had a gap in our day and 3 hours was the perfect amount of time. The staff on board, John, Nate and Logan were very friendly and knowledgable. We saw Porpoises,... More

We did the 3 hour tour- perfect length for my girlfriend and I- we saw pretty much all the wildlife we were hoping to see- American bald eagle, puffins, sealions, porpoises, and the most spectacular whales breaching the water- seriously- jumping out of the water. We were also given quite a geography lesson as well and history of resurrection bay... More

We spent five hours on the water with Major Marine today, and it was very well done. The cruise loops Resurrection Bay, with (on this sunny day) amazing views of glaciers, mountains, birdlife, and sealife. We did choose to carry our lunches on board, with sandwiches from The Bakery across the street. It looked like a good choice vs. the... More

The boat Spirit of Adventure sums it up for our trip. The staff aboard the boat was very accommodating. The Forest Ranger was able to answer all questions. The lunch that was included was delicious. We were able to see amazing views and wildlife in their natural habitat. Unfortunately, due to the weather the day we went out the boat... More
