I took the 6-hour tour - the 3-hour tour does not get out of Resurrection Bay. Resurrection Bay is beautiful, with plenty of wildlife, but the really special stuff (whales, calving glaciers, and hearing the noises of the glaciers) required the extra travel. As other people have said, the weather is often a factor, so it is helpful to have a flexible schedule. After several days of bad weather, I had a patch of great weather and switched around my schedule to take advantage of it. The seas were calm and the views were spectacular! The crew was friendly and informative.

One of the highlights of our Alaskan vacation. We did the Northwestern Fjord tour - around 9 hours. Captain Dan was great. Could not believe the places he got that boat into - and so close to the waterfalls you could practically touch them. Just be prepared for the weather as it seems it's often cool and rainy in those seacoast areas.

We took the day tour which stops at fox island for a dinner buffet. The captain, Chris, was very knowledgable. Got to see some otters, seals, puffins, bald eagles and even hump back whales. They were very accommodating and arranged a vegetarian meal for me at lunch (hummus wrap) and dinner (veg lasagna). It was a fun memorable day with the kids.

Highly recommend the trip out to Northwestern Fjord and Glacier. We've done it twice now once on a small boat and once on a larger one. Both trips were spectacular! The marine life is incredibly abundant. Whales, otters, sea lions, seals, Dall porpoise, jumping salmon. The scenery breathtaking, even on the bigger boat the captain took us to some special places he had discovered while kayaking and showed us some cool caves, waterfalls, etc. And the big boat was able to get amazingly close to everything, every bit as close as the smaller boat...which was a concern of ours when we booked the trip. Finally the fjord itself is beautiful. It's fairly narrow so you will be able to check out both shorelines, both on your way in and on your way out. The terminus at the glacier is as beautiful a destination as you could imagine. It was pretty misty when we were in front of the glacier and the mist coupled with the blue, blue calving ice was really special.

We went with Kenai Fjords Tours, which was the only company running trips out to this location this time around. Captain Dan was exceptional. REALLY knew his stuff. As I mentioned, we went on this same trip ten years ago on a much smaller boat and at that time thought it was one of the best days of our lives. (Bear viewing in Katmai has since surpassed it but there's no shame in being number two to that!) The combination of a bigger boat and high expectation made us a little wary this time...and yet it did not disappoint. Still one of the greatest days of our lives! Highly recommend this one and from everyone we spoke with including locals, other boat captains and regular visitors to Seward, significantly more special than the other locations the tour boats go out to in Kenai Fjords NP. Bottom line...go, you will not be disappointed!
