Our cruise aboard the Kenai Explorer was a great experience. Our captain, Colin, and the crew were great. They were so friendly and helpful, and watched diligently and announced views of wildlife and and scenery all along the way. The boat came as close as possible to allow extended viewing. They were a wealth of information, and obviously were keenly... More

We reserved the four hour day cruise to Fox Island from Kenai Fjords Tours via Alaska Tour and Travel and had a great day. The boat was nice, the windows could have been a bit cleaner for better viewing from inside the cabin, but this didnt take much away from it because the scenery was breathtaking and we spent most...

Took the full day tour. Large boat with comfortable table seating inside. It was wonderful. Saw sea lions, otters, puffins, bald eagles, orcas and humpback whales and several glaciers. I ran outside a lot to take pictures and back inside to warm up. Dress for cold and wet weather. They picked us up and brought us back to our hotel.... More

We absolutely loved the Resurrection Bay Tour which included wildlife sightings of all kinds like whales, sea lions, puffins, sea otters, thousands of birds, etc. The tour also provides a delicious buffet with wild Alaska salmon and prime rib meal and scrumptious sides. The meal was served on a private island and included a presentation by a Park Ranger.

The captain of our boat made every effort to stop and allow everyone a chance to see every bit of wildlife sighted and the glacier. Educational narrative during the trip. Did the 6 hour trip...thought it would be too long, but it was not...could have done longer.

The boat captain was very knowledgeable and really cared about the environment and the creatures in it. Even the crew members were excited about the sightings and very willing to engage with the passengers, and teach us about the various things we were seeing. We saw seals, sea lions, otters, humpback whales, a bunch of different kinds of birds, and... More

I have to admit, the weather we had on our cruise was absolutely brilliant! Sunny skies, smooth seas and warm breezes all made this trip even more enjoyable! We took the 6 hour cruise departing at 8:00am. Our captain (Mark) on the Tanaina was fabulous. He was well versed in the Alaskan wildlife as well as the geographic nuances in... More

Captain Mark was super interesting to listen to and found a ton of wildlife. We saw at least 8 whales! It was obvious he and the rest of the staff loved their jobs! They were very attentive and happy!

Worth every cent! Dress warm! Dinner was great, Fox Island beautiful. The captain on our trip was amazing! Got us close enough to really enjoy the creatures and scenery without disturbing them. Well done! Saw humpbacks bubble-netting, orca pod AK6(they actually approached the boat on their own initiative!), stellar sea lions & their rookery, glaciers, puffins and more!
