Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Our family of 4 took the Gray Whale watching tour mainly expecting to see beautiful scenery & a few animals but not really thinking we’d see whales. Our captain made the extra effort to go a little farther than normal hoping to see a whale. The effort paid off! We saw at least 3 humpback whales. The crew was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and glaciers. The boat was clean and warm inside.

Great time - beautiful animals & wildlife & scenery! Would recommend to others. Was a nice package deal with the Harbor 360 Hotel right on the bay & the Sea Life Center. : - )

Although we only got to see the whales blow water up, we saw plenty of other amazing wildlife the cruise was relaxing, the hotel was perfect! (With a pool!) and the sea life center was fun! Already looking into our second cruise
