Awesome wildlife and beautiful scenery. Saw orca's, humpbacks, sea otters, sea lions, eagles and many others. Easy drive from Anchorage. Go on a smaller boat you get up close to the wildlife. When the glacier start to calve the sound is incredible.

This tour was one of the highlights of our visit. We took the 6 hour tour which sounded long since we had just gotten off a cruise ship but it was fantastic. We saw more wildlife in 6 hours than we did in our 7 day cruise. And a whale breached about 6 times as we looked and took pictures. Amazing. It was cold so take heavy coats. The glacier we went to was no big deal but we had seen larger ones earlier. Loved this cruise and would like to go back to explore the Fjords. they were magical and mystic.

I saw the National Park as part of a 4 hours tour from the Seward Marina conducted by Kenai Fjord Tours. We saw sea otters playing in the water, pods of Orca whale, humpack whales, porpoises, and harbor seals. Two highlights of the trip were seeing and hearing the glacier calve and the bald eagle we were lucky enough to observe on the return trip. The waters were calm for the most part, but there was a 10 -15 minute period in the Gulf of Alaska where it got really choppy and bouncy. Ginger candy and a bonine pill before getting on board was what was suggested to me before the trip, and that worked beautifully. That being said, I would eat lightly before the trip. The scenery is magnificent. I highly recommend seeing the park from the water!

I love the Kenai area! It has the two mighty rivers, the Kenai and the Russian, the beautiful Kenai Lake, rustic cabins, good home-cooked meals at the mom and pop restaurants, and the fjords are breath taking. A small planes flight over the fjords is well worth the investment.
