We took the all day tour with the dinner at Fox Island. Of all the land and boat trips we took in our two weeks in Alaska, this is probably the best. The scenery is spectacular and varied, but Alaska has a lot of that. What this trip had was wildlife and more wildlife. Whales, orcas, sea lions, puffins, eagles,... More

The all day boat tour through the Kenai Peninsula is one of the most fascinating day trips we've ever taken! From the beauty of the port at lovely Seward to the outstanding, breath-taking glacier, to the amazing steak and lobster dinner at Fox Island, Kenai Fjords tour was absolutely worth the price and then some! We will never forget the... More

Did the six hour tour to a glacier and I was awed on the way at the abundant amount of wildlife. Seals, otters, three different kinds of whales. Also saw Eagles, and a dozen other birds. The had paper brochures you could keep track of what you saw. Some porpoises were swimming along the bow for 20 minutes and the... More

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 Northwestern Fjords tour in mid-June 2014. The staff and ship were both great. The ship offers comfortable seating, a large open space, food and beverages, and plenty of outside deck areas for getting pictures of the varied scenery and wildlife. We saw an abundance of different wildlife, many beautiful areas, and our stop at the glacier was... 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

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
