Overview
More
Major Marine Tours offers two thrilling full day cruises into the Kenai Fjords National Park, where wildlife is abundant and tidewater glaciers are massive. Covering 120 miles, you can choose between a 6 hour or 7.5 hour tour, and all trips are hosted by a National Park Ranger. At the glaciers you'll often witness calving - a process by which glaciers shed giant blocks of ancient ice. This area is also home to a wide variety of animals including whales, sea lions, seals and sea otters, as well as an abundance of birds including puffins and eagles. You can enhance your experience with our Alaska salmon and prime rib buffet, freshly prepared on board the vessel. All guests are guaranteed reserved seating inside our heated cabins.

I loved how the crew was knowledgeable and friendly. Free coffee was definitely a perk! What was the most special about this company is how they respected the wildlife and balanced the visitors desire to see wildlife with a respectable distance. Great balance!

We took the all-day trip. I believe it was 8-10 hours. This one event pretty much made our whole Alaska vacation worth the time and money. Fantastic up close look at calving glaciers and wildlife everywhere. We had several humpbacks breaching all around us for...More
