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.

This tour provided so much wildlife viewing, one would have thought it was staged or part of a theme park. We had a good guide who not only seemed to enjoy the wildlife as much as we did but really took his time to ensure we had the right vantage points to see the whales,

We were scheduled for a full 6 hour Resurrection Bay/Kenai National Park glacier view tour, but, due to 4' seas and high winds, it was cut short by about 2 hours. However, "discretion is the better part of valor". A U.S. Park Ranger is also on board and gives history and other interesting commentary as the cruise progresses. The Captain... More

My girlfriend and I had the absolute privilege to live in Seward for the summer, her parents were visiting and we took them on the cruise. Despite some rain and clouds we were able to see some spectacular views and wildlife. The Highlight of the trip for me was the Glacier! Was a bucket list for me! Absolutely worth the... More

My hubby and I had a great time on this 5 hour tour. They fed us also, we had prime rib and seafood. It was over two hundred for the both of us and that included the buffet. I would spend the money again! We saw mountain sheep, a humpback whale, sea otters and the darling little puffin birds. And... More

Had a great time and saw an eagle up close. The crew did an excellent job..... We loved Steward. We went after the busy season and a lot of things were closed for the season, but we found everyone to be friendly and very helpful. We will do this again if we get the chance.

It was fun seeing all of the wildlife, mountain goats, sea lions, sea otters and beautiful glaciers as well. The staff was very helpful making our cruise at the end of the season a memorable event. We also need... More

This was a great tour. We went in middle August. The glaciers were beautiful and we saw and heard them calving. It could not have been more breathtaking. We saw lots of sea otters, sea lions, and puffins. We saw several whales from a distance, but not many. The captain and his crew were fantastic and very helpful. They went... More
