The crew was great, and the trip was amazing! We took the five hour trip with the lunch. Despite light rain, we were able to see whales, seals, sea lions, and lots of birds (MANY eagles). The scenery is stunning and the captain took great care to give everyone time to see and photograph wildlife. We took my parents on... More

This review is mainly on the crew. Our cruise experience was limited by the rainy weather and seasickness. The brochure said something about sailing in the calm Resurrection Bay and avoiding the oceans waves. Based on this we didn't medicate before the cruise (our mistake). We did stay in the calm bay about 90% of the cruise. When we did... More

If your heart is set on seeing the most wildlife, I would do the longer cruise. We did the 3.5hr cruise and saw quite a bit. The boat size is nice and was not crowded. The staff was so nice and really strived to be helpful. There is a drink "the hot otter" if you are over 21 -- you... More

Took the Resurrection Bay tour with my sister and nephew this time. It did not disappoint. Saw whales, sea lions, seals and lots of birds not to mention all the gorgeous scenery. Salmon and prime rib meal is very good and a worth addition to your ticket.

We took the 3 and a half hour wildlife cruise as we had a limited time having only arrived in Seward at 4pm. We left at 6pm and were back by 9.30pm. We travelled with our 9 and 12 year old daughters who would not have tolerated a longer tour. It was a beautiful sunny evening and we sat on... More

We had a very informative captain and park ranger Robyn on this cruise. It was sunny so we were lucky and had great bird and mountain viewing. Along the way out we saw two different pods of killer whales very close up, one pod went under our boat. Shortly after we had a humpback whale near us and we saw... More

We took the 6 hour fjord tour and unfortunately the rain was terrible and we couldn't go outside and any viewing from the inside of the boat was very obscured. We did, however, see humpback whales, puffin birds, sea lions and more. There is plenty of food and drinks available on board (lunch was included). As the weather was so... More

Even though it was raining the day I took the marine tour it didn't detract from the exquisite view of Resurrection Bay. I did the 4 and and half tour including the delicious buffet on Fox Island which included an unlimited amount of tender and flavorful Prime Rib and savory salmon. It is quite a relaxing time and the price... More

We've done this tour 5 times over the last 10 years. We have seen whales every time and the captains have been wonderful to get the best vantage point for viewing of wildlife for everyone on board. The buffet meal is wonderful and the desserts are very tasty.
