The crew aboard the Kenai Star gave us an exceptional experience. From start to finish this excursion exceeded all expectations. We saw abundant wildlife and the crew was exceptionally knowledgeable about everything we saw.

5/5 for sure. Such an amazing day with beautiful sights. Be ready for a packed 6 hours and amazing scenery. The day flew by! We saw plenty of wildlife. Birds, humpback whales, sea lions, sea otters, seals, etc….. bring your good camera you will need it. The boat has both indoor seating and outdoor seating. If you get seasick or you just don’t want to take a chance I would highly recommend taking a motion sickness pill prior to boarding the boat. Our group typically does fine on boats, but we did not want to take a chance and ruin our day, so one pill with breakfast and we did fine. Several people on the boat got sick when we got into some rough water. The crew on the boat is very attentive and keeps an eye on everyone. The rough waters did not last long, just brief areas of crossing. The entire cruise is narrated by the captain. Getting up close to the glacier was breathtaking. The captain did a great job of rotating the boat, so everyone can get good pictures. We brought our book bags with our clothing and other needs on board. Dry storage under your table is a perfect spot for bags. It rained the day we went out on the boat. Pretty much like a light mist/rain. Chilly for sure and we had multiple layers on to step outside and catch the views. One recommendation would be rain pants and also a rain jacket. We were happy to have our rain gear. Staying dry is key! I would recommend bringing snacks and drinks if your group gets a little hungry or thirsty. You will be served a lunch basket (chicken wrap /chips/nature valley bar) and there is a snack bar with snacks, coffee, hot chocolate, and drinks. Toward the conclusion of the trip you will get hot chocolate chip cookies. Our group enjoyed those. Bring cash to tip the captain and crew at the conclusion. Such a fun day! Enjoy!

Our Kenai Fjords tour with Major Marine was the highlight of our Alaskan vacation. Captain Nat and his crew were knowledgable and professional. We saw everything we hoped for and more. Our favorites were the humpback bubble net feeding, orca whales, and glacier calving. Captain Nat’s knowledge about wildlife and geology was impressive and informative. In addition to being a skilled captain it was clear he loved his job. The crew were friendly, helpful, and went above and beyond to provide an enjoyable trip for everyone.

Major Marine provides a top notch experience! The boat was extremely clean. The crew was extremely friendly and helpful. The Captain was was Very Professional and Pleasant! He did a wonderful job seeking out wildlife sightings and narrating what to look for, or what we were seeing. He gave us ample time to view the wildlife and glaciers and many times from different positions. They crew was very organized in welcoming guests onto the boat and getting us seated, as well as serving a nice lunch. When we left the boat, our hearts were full....from this amazing, first time, experience for our group of 6. Just to qualify....we cruised with Major Marine on a gorgeous day in early June....the skies were clear and the waters calm! (It did get very cold on the water, naturally.....but we were prepared with coats, hats & gloves....and the free warm drinks provided by Major Marine.
