We took the Major Marine 6-hour cruise and it was the highlight of our trip. We saw otters, sea lions, porpoises, orcas, humpbacks and a great variety of birds. Our stop at the glacier was awesome. We also enjoyed hiking out to Exit Glacier with a park ranger.

If you have the time and money the 6 hour boat trip by Major Marine is well worth it and we enjoyed the food they served. No more costly than most restaurants and all you can eat salmon and prime rib, salad, rice pilaf, dessert.

First, let's clear up a bit of confusion; Kenai Fjords National Park is part of the US National Park system and includes Exit Glacier and the Harding Ice Field, in addition to the miles and miles of coastal area accessible only by boat. The Kenai Fjords National Park boat tours are operated by a privately owned Alaksa Native company. They do an absolutely wonderful job of getting people to see the abundant wildlife of the area. We saw whales,puffins, seals, otters, sea lions, eagles and also saw a glacier calving into the ocean. A truly magnificat sight! The captain did everything possible so that people on both sides of the boat could see the wildlife. Be sure to dress in layers and bring rain gear. Bring binoculars if you have them. It was not really a rough day, but one passenger was sick, so if you are prone to motion sickness, take precautions before you go. If your small kids have trouble with a 6 or 8 hour tour, bring some toys or books for them. Lunch is not bad and they also sell snacks, soft drinks, etc. at reasonable prices, but you might want to bring your own snacks and water.

Wonderful visit to Kenai Fjords National Park. Visited a little by land (Exit Glacier), Most by sea. Several vendors available to take you out to see sea life and glaciers. I recomend the longer tour to see Northwestern Glacier. My two girls (5, 11) loved seeing the animals, Glaciers, and riding on the ship. Hump Back whales, Dall Porpoise, Sea Lions, Seals... lots of birds.

If you go to Alaska, you have to find a way to go into the Kenai Fjords National Park. The views are amazing, the glaciers are amazing, and if you are lucky, you can watch a glacier calve in front of you. The wildlife is also worth your time. I went on a boat trip and that is the way to see everything.
