Major Marine Tours offers two thrilling full day cruises into the Kenai Fjords National Park, where wildlife is abundant and tidewater glaciers are massive. Covering 120 miles, you can choose between a 6 hour or 7.5 hour tour, and all trips are hosted by a National Park Ranger. At the glaciers you'll often witness calving - a process by which glaciers shed giant blocks of ancient ice. This area is also home to a wide variety of animals including whales, sea lions, seals and sea otters, as well as an abundance of birds including puffins and eagles. You can enhance your experience with our Alaska salmon and prime rib buffet, freshly prepared on board the vessel. All guests are guaranteed reserved seating inside our heated cabins.

I have seen Fjords in Norway, Chile, Argentina and New Zealand. All were beautiful but the Alaskan Fjords in the Kenai National Park are spectacular. It makes for a long day but, the sites are so amazing, it's hard to contain my excitement. You not only get to see the glaciers, we were fortunate enough to see numerous humpback whales,... More

Great boat, great National Park Ranger guide who teaches about everything . Outstanding wildlife , which the boat does a great job of tracking. Recommend at least the 7.5 hour trip , and be... More

We took the MMT 6 hour Kenai Fjods Cruise. At first I was thinking that i might have preferred the longer trip, but after the 6 hours, this trip was perfect. The boat was very nice, the staff was great, the information was great, the wildlife was great, the scenery was great. If I ever come back I will for... More

This was my first Glacier wildlife tours in Alaska. I loved the crew. Tanner loves his work! Seward is beautiful. The tour highlighted the Bald Eagles, otters, seals and whales. Then we had a marvelous view of a glacier.

We were very fortunate to have wonderful weather on the day that we took our Kenai Fjords tour with Major Marine Tours. We saw a LOT of marine life - puffins, humpback whales (several), killer whales (several), sea otters, and various sea birds. I've been on marine wildlife cruises before, but I've never seen as many animals as I did... More

We did two fjord cruises in Alaska this summer. Despite seeing more wildlife and whales on this cruise, we enjoyed the other one way more. Everything we saw was very beautiful, but the crew, the captain and the whole establishment just lacked engagement. The other cruise, from Whittier had better food and more engaging staff. The captain was on the... More

We called down to Major Marine Tours number mid-morning on a day we decided to try a tour (fairly last minute). Darby at the company advised there was one tour available that day remaining that we could possibly make coming in from Anchorage (2+ hours away). We were advised we needed to be there by 1:30pm to get on the... More

We were on the smaller boat (M/V Viewfinder), and the nine hour tour. We had great weather, which is great for weather, but not great for wildlife. That said, we saw plenty. Crew was very good and did a fine job. The reason I gave only three stars was that there were just too many folks on the boat. There... More

My husband and I just took the 71/2 glacier and wildlife tour. It was spectacular. There was an on-board ranger to assist in pointing out sights and answer questions. The dinner meal was wonderful. Prime rib and salmon with all the complements. It was actually delicious, much to my surprise. There was even fruit, brownies, and cheesecake for dessert. I... More
