    Your adventure in Kenai Fjords begins at the harbor in beautiful Seward, Alaska. Check in at our central office and enjoy the sights and sounds of the lively waterfront. When it’s time to board, head down the dock to your vessel, where you’ll be greeted by our team of deckhands. The journey begins as you sail out of the Seward harbor—watch for the resident bald eagle and seals! From here, different tours take different directions. As Resurrection Bay opens into the rugged Gulf of Alaska, our exploration into Kenai Fjords National Park deepens. No matter the tour you choose, you’ll have plenty of wildlife-watching opportunities, see stunningly craggy coastlines, meet our enthusiastic and knowledgeable team of deckhands, learn and discover along with our passionate captains and explore the majesty that is Kenai Fjords.

Great Scenery and Wildlife!
Jul 2021
Wonderful experience even if the waters were a bit choppy. We were given options for refund, reschedule or to go ahead and do tour. We decided to brave the waves and are so glad we did! I suffer from motion sickness and had taken dramamine and did just fine! The captain was very informative and spotted much wildlife for us to enjoy seeing. He made sure all had time to observe each creature. His skill was displayed when he took us near the waterfalls as well as in the choppy waves. We enjoyed our lunch meal and the fresh baked, warm cookie near the end of our ride. Really wanted to see a tidewater glacier and it did not disappoint with calving of small pieces up high while we watched. Getting to see Orca, a humpback, puffins, sea otters, bald eagles and Dall porpoise were a bonus on this adventure of a lifetime!

Wonderful Experience!
Jun 2021
We were scheduled for 8.5 hour cruise, but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and the waves further out made it unsafe. The staff made the offer to reschedule us on the 3.5 hour cruise with a refund for the difference. Of course we did it and it was an amazing experience! We saw humpback whales, sea lions, puffin, and more! I really wish we could've done the longer tour, but was thankful for the tour group keeping our safety in mind. I would definitely do this again!

Captain Lindstrom is an Alaskan Treasure
Captain Lindstrom is an Alaskan treasure. He’s competed in the Iditarod and have 25 plus years experience as a tour ship captain in Kenai Fjords. Not surprising for the northern Pacific Ocean, we had rain: yet Captain Lindstrom kept ou spirits sunny with his excellent navigation and narration.

We saw a pod of humpback whales bubble feeding, saw a juvenile humpback very actively feeding, saw plentiful wild birds and very close views of stellar sea lions.

The views of the Northwest Glacier were incredible.

The staff was very courteous and lunch was excellent. Our 7 year old was never bored. Very nice bar choices as well to have a beer or mixed drink along the way. Shame on y’all for how good the cookies are as an after the glacier treat.

DESPITE UNSEASONABLY COLD WEATHER WE LOVED OUR NORTHWEST GLACIER CRUISE. The time passed very quickly.

Great glacier and wildlife cruise
Had a great time on the cruise despite the rainy and foggy weather.
We only saw a few glaciers as it was foggy. The northwestern glacier was spectacular!
Animals-wise we saw porpoise, a humpback whale (spouts and a tale and a breach!), puffins, seals and a sea lion.
Bring Dramamine, or buy it at the shop, if it’s bad weather as my ride was very choppy. Best to avoid the alcohol on board for the same reason.
The lunch is a small/medium portion, but you don’t want a larger portion because of the ocean turbulence.

Great Cruise - Even though the weather did not cooperate
Jun 2021
We were in Seward on a cold rainy day but our cruise was still a go. There was plenty of indoor seating on the boat and it was heated so we were comfortable. We could go out on deck whenever we wanted for wildlife viewing. The boat was very clean and comfortable and our captain was very informative - We saw a number of Killer Whales, a Hump Back Whale, Porpoise, Sea Lions, Seals, a number of different bird species, including puffins, and a couple of playful sea otters. The Glacier was amazing and our captain navigated through the ice filled water giving us an up close view and remained in the area to allow us time to watch as chunks of ice fell from the glacier. Only draw back for some would be if you suffer from motion sickness - there were a couple of people on the boat that did not do well. The crew was very empathetic and prepared for this, they did great helping them. Great trip for us !!

Bad experience
Jun 2021
The weather was awful with 20mph winds and 7 ft. swells. Everyone on the boat was sick. I will never do that trip again. I much prefer the shorter trip where you see more wildlife and spend more time watching the glaciers instead of slapping through the water. This was a very expensive trip 783.00 for 4 of us. Not worth it

Kenai Fjords was exceptional
Jun 2021
Captain Mark and Crew did an amazing job. We saw orca, whales, puffins, sea lions, otters and tons of sea birds during our tour. Everything was clean, and we felt safe. It was an amazing experience and we will certainly cruise with Kenai Fjords again!

We were on Orca Voyager and the boat was and clean, captain was great and full of info narration and the staff were great. It’s once of the highlights of my AK trip.
