This tour is first class. Vessel was IMMACULATELY and crew very competent. We lucked out with flat seas, however ther were still a couple dozen seasick passengers. DUH! We had multiple whale encounters that were the best ever, and I'm from Kona. See whales every year and my mind was blown. Do this trip, but treat yourself for seasickness well... More

We took the 9 hour tour in early August 2014. Though on the spendy side, it is worth the money as you are already in Alaska. We opted for the full day to see as much as possible. Boat stopped at key locations to see glaciers, wildlife, and scenery. The naturalist interpretation was thorough and constant throughout the trip. Highly... More

This boat trip was very good. We saw lots of seals and other sea life. The glacier view was excellent. We did see better glaciers from out cruise ship. Dress warmly and bring rain gear. If I had it to do over, I would eliminate the Seward visit as we saw great glaciers and sea life from the cruise ship.... More

We mainly went out to see a glacier tour but ended up seeing a super pod of orcas. It was a little rough on the water once you were out towards the point heading towards the glacier. We saw some goats, puffins, sea otters, sea lions, porpoise, harbor seals and lots of resident orcas. The orcas came up right next... More

We were very excited about this tour and made it our end of vacation destination. The fact that the weather was horrible is no fault of the tour company. However, we were packed into booths and herded like sheep throughout the trip. We spent two weeks traveling through Alaska and booked many tours and trips. This was the most expensive... More

This cruise excursion from Seward, Alaska was one of the best that I have every taken. The Captain promised us a good day and it was a great day. We saw so many wildlife, just could not take all the pictures it was so many. From Eagles to Whales everything was out. The atmosphere on the boat was relaxed, the... More

We booked the Kenai Fjords tour at the end of our trip to Alaska, and it was perhaps the highlight of our whole trip. The boat was comfortable and you could walk around to get the best views, or just stay at your seat. Right away we saw sea otters, then humpback whales, puffins, harbor seals and sea lions. It...

We saw a lot of impressive sights and did a lot of neat activities during our trip to Alaska but I felt this was the best value. We did the 9 hour tour to the northwestern fjord and it was definitely worth it! The glaciers and calving in this fjord were absolutely stunning, thought I bet any of their tours... More

We went on the National Parks tour in September. My main goal was to see whales which we saw almost immediately. The beauty of the fjords cannot be captured on a camera, you have to see for yourself. Be prepared for a large ship with lots of guests- although it did not seem a packed full as some of the... More

I recommend to anyone the 6 hour tour...worth every penny. Going into the fjords is almost as amazing as seeing the whales. We went on the morning tour and saw in total probably 7 whales (some humpback and a few Orcas) and at one point had a bunch of porpoises swimming alongside the boat. The whales are a shy animal...
