I am not a fan of being on a big boat with a lot of people. Seward Ocean Excursions gave you a personable trip. There was a total of 5 of us on the boat. We had a blast! Our captain was very informative and knowledgeable about the different species of animals that reside in Seward. If you are looking for a very reasonably priced trip and a personable trip please look them up. You can go more places in a smaller boat than you can in a bigger vessel.

If you are looking for a Seward wildlife cruise do not look elsewhere!! We opted for Seward Ocean Excursions because it's a small boat and 8 takes persons max We did the 3 1/2 hour tour with Cassie as our captain. We cannot say enough good things about Cassie. I've never met a person as knowledgeable about anything. My brothers had endless questions about the wildlife, ocean, Alaska, Seward, etc. and she was never stumped, always patient and fun. It was clear that her primary goal was seeing that we enjoyed ourselves and saw as much wildlife as possible. A personal experience we would not have had on a large boat.

Great Trip! Had a wonderful time on the adventure. Captain was very attentive to the groups requests and went above and beyond to find wildlife. Going as a small group is a lot better than on a large ship.

We went on the 3.5 hr boat tour with Bixler yesterday. Bixler was an amazing host and was able to answer every question we had about the local wildlife, Seward history, etc. He even had some fun stories that we enjoyed hearing about. If you are considering booking this vs. the larger cruises, please know that Seward Ocean Excursions is personable (max of 6 ppl) and listened to our every request and question. We even were able to watch a humpback for a long time with no other boats in the area obstructing our view. We recommend this excursion 100+%!! Thanks for you hospitality Bixler!!!

I truly appreciated the phone call the evening before to warn us about weather conditions. Sadly, we decided to cancel hence this review is more a tribute to the professional attitude and kindness of the operators. They quickly refunded 100% our tour costs and we hope to return next year and have better weather for our trip.
