We took the 8 1/2 hour National Park Tour and were able to see orca, humpbacks, sea otters, puffins, porpoise, seals, sea lions, and great views of some glaciers. Our tour also included lunch on the boat (chicken caesar wrap) and dinner on Fox Island (prime rib was great but salmon was on the dry side). Though the price seemed... More

You will NOT regret paying for this tour; it was a memory of a lifetime! If you love nature and want to see marine life close-up while you are in Alaska, this is the way to go! And the tour to the Tidewater Glacier is UNFORGETTABLE. The boat staff is nice, the lunch is decent (worth paying for), and the... More

The Kenai fjords day cruise is wonderful. The scenery is magnificent. The wildlife is great too. We saw orca's, sealions, harbor seals, sea otters and all kinds of birds. The boat gets very near to the glaciers.

Great tour. The crew and captain were great and wonderful to have park ranger on board. Food was terrific! Loved the scenery which included puffins, mountain goat, humpback whales and calving glaciers!

A fantastic tour that's worth every penny. The captain was awesome and have ample information about each place we stopped and each animal species we saw. The glacier viewing was great and they even grabbed a piece of ice for the passengers to hold and take pictures with, an added bonus for sure. All in all the cruise was fantastic,... More

We did this tour on short notice in early September and had a great time. We had originally planned to hike Exit Glacier, but I broke my leg just before the trip so hiking was out. We arrived in Seward and wondered what to do with very limited mobility (I was on crutches). We called Kenai Fjords tours, and a... More

We took a 6 hour tour as an introduction to the waters off southeast Alaska. My wife was concerned about seasickness, but the day was beautiful, the bay was relatively calm and the catamaran was stable. In September, you are likely to see humpback whales and we saw several. In addition, the sound and sight of a glacier calving was... More

I had high expectations for the Dinner Cruise, but sadly it did not meet my expectations. I'm not sure if it was the so-so rainy weather that took away from experience or not. On our way out to Fox island we did not see much wildlife...I do not blame the cruise company for this - I know they cannot control... More

On this all day, 9a.m.-6p.m., boat tour to Northwestern Glacier we were lucky to see incredible breaching whales, a mother and her calf especially put on quite a show! There was so much activity from this pair of whales, that all the oohs and aahs from people on deck, eventually just changed to silence taking in the incredible experience! Luckily,... More

This was a fantastic tour. You're at the mercy of the weather and it was cold when we went, but they have hot chocolate and coffee for sale aboard. Staff was wonderful, narrative and scenery were spectacular. This company was very customer friendly and made the day very enjoyable for all on board. Highly recommend. It's very hard in Alaska...
