What a great experience! Friendly staff, comfortable boat, great narration, nice lunch. Unbelievable scenery and sea life. Saw many whales, sea lions, sea otters, puffins, etc. The scenery and glaciers are spectacular. I will be back!

We debated which company to go with, and decided on Kenai Fjords as they had a great reputation, seemed to be the leaders, and generally a great attitude. Found out its owned by an organization of native Alaskans, promoting cultural awareness and stewardship of the environment, so that was an extra bonus! From start to finish this was a great... More

My two teenage boys and I attended this trip hoping to see some wild life... WOW!! We saw it all: Dall porpoise, Killer whales (large pod feeding!), sea otters (multiple times), seals, puffins (both types) humpback whales...wow...up close and feeding multiple times witnessed the "bubble net" scenario, eagles...and many other birds species. We never caught our breath because then we... More

This 9 hour cruise through the Kenai Fjords was absolutely amazing! Loved every minute of it. The captain (mark) and his crew were terrific. My father in law was so nervous when he got on board but by the time we got off he was doing the "I'm sailing" thing at the bow of the boat. Capt Mark took us... More

I live in Alaska and had never been on one of these, but my Florida friends wanted to go. We took the 4 1/2 hour tour which included lunch on Fox Island. The lunch was excellent and worth every penny. The tour boat captain, Rob, was great and we really enjoyed his narrative. We saw otters, porpoises, sea lions, seals... More

Kenai fjords national park is a true gem!!! Ive been to 30 national parks and this is right there with the best of the best! We did the full 9 hour tour on the Alaskan Explorer with captain Mark and his crew. Mark is as professional as it gets! His 22yrs of operating tours really shows with his expert knowledge... More

Totally recommend this trip to the NW fjords. Make sure you don't miss seeing the pale blue glaciers calving, the seals chilling out on ice floes and the little birds sunning on floating ice. Absolutely incredibly beautiful and like nothing else I've ever seen.

We had a great experience on this cruise! We did the 6 hour National Park Tour. The Captain and staff were very kind, courteous and knowledgeable. They were very accessible the whole time and genuinely seemed excited to be there. We went early in the season and were really hoping to see some whales. Two days before we went on... More

I would have rated this tour five stars, but for the Sea sicknesses many people had! Of course you can't blame them for that. They did take care of the patients and helped them. This was a small six hours Cruise and we started around 9am. As our Cruise, which was a medium sized one, went deeper in the Sea,... More

The Kenai Fjords Tour was excellent! The crew was gracious and helpful, the box lunch rated high marks and the dinner on Fox Island was fun and tasty. Of course the captain had an eye out for the wildlife and we all saw lots of birds and marine life. Of course there are the glaciers, what more can I say?
