Seward was our last stop on the Kenai before heading back to the lower 48. We really enjoyed our sea life cruise! About our crew:) Captain Kayleigh was delightful as a narrator and navigator! She and her crew, Trina, Paul ,Jen ,and Emily made every effort to scout out marine life and wildlife in the water and along the rugged cliffs of Resurrection Bay and beyond! They clearly love what they do:). As one might expect during this "new normal" age we live in the crew went about cleaning touchable surfaces quite often. We highly recommend Major Marine Tours!

Had a blast on this cruise! Awesome views, saw a bunch of wildlife (humpback and orca whales, sea lions, goats...) thanks to Captain Sarah and went close to a glacier! The best boat cruise I’ve ever done!

The boat was half filled, good for us but not for the company. And they did give us Glacier and Wildlife! It started off quiet. It was a rainy morning. But soon we got to see plenty of life on the shores, cliffs and ocean. The Ailik glacier was fantastic. Blue and eerie. And cold. Our highlight was the group of Humpback whales we saw on the back to Seward. Did I say Puffins? I LOVED the puffins!!! Guides, crew and all at Kenai Fjords Cruise were helpful, gracious and knowledgeable. The food wasn't bad either.

We have just returned to Maine from our wonderful trip to Alaska! It was our first trip and it was a gift for our 30th wedding anniversary! We enjoyed immensely seeing our grandchildren, whom we hadn't seen in a long time! Also we enjoyed the beautiful, amazing scenery of Alaska! Several recommended us to go on Major Marine Tours. For us, it was a very expensive splurge! We are not rich! It was about $370 for the two of us (my husband only makes $600 a week). Although, we did see some wildlife and the amazing glacier, we were quite disappointed with our captain. She was not very accessible to the public for questions. She talked a lot (too much) over the loudspeaker. She greeted us when we got on and again, when we got off, however, the Personal Touch was truly lacking. I have called Major Marine Tours and express this to them and they were very nice and helped us a little. We also expressed our disappointment in the windows not being clear to look through and take some pictures. We were outside most of the time and enjoyed taking pics there, but sometimes it was nice to warm up and take pictures from inside. This was explained away as sea spray and the safety measures in cleaning, while the boat is cruising and that, we certainly understand. I inquired about Windows being made so that they could be opened, if necessary. The person I spoke with on the phone said it wouldn't be safe for covid-19. Uhhhh.... unsafe to let fresh air in? Covid was the excuse for other points, as well. We truly enjoyed the deli lunch and the giant swells. The instructions from the captain and her assistant were clear and easy to understand. We enjoyed clearance shopping in the gift shop! ❤️ As we look back, it was a very touristy thing to do. Our favorite times in Alaska, other than with our grandchildren, were the days and evenings of hiking in the beautiful mountains, which is pretty much free! If we happen to come into a large amount of money someday, we still won't take this Cruise again.

Despite a cloudy day with bouts of rain, this was a great tour. Captain Laura gave very interesting commentary throughout the trip and was so good about stopping and positioning to see wildlife. She took us out of the way for a sighting of a large orca pod. Wow! We also saw mountain goats, sea lions, eagles, sea lions, sea otters, and seals. We hung out at a glacier for 1/2 an hour. Then they offered glacial ice margaritas using ice we saw the crewman pull out of the bay. What a treat! Lunch was ordinary but ample. Seating was assigned but we were free to roam as much as we wanted.
