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.

We booked with Major Marine because they had assigned seats (we didn't want to have to save seats or fight for them all day), and their salmon/prime rib lunch was a nice treat. We saw a glacier close up and heard the calving... it was...More

We chose to do a tour with Major Marine rather than Kenai because of the fact that they have a Park Ranger on board and she really helped to make the tour informative and special. Sadly we didn't get to see the Orcas on our...More

We took the small boat for a more intimate tour of the glaciers and whale watching. Very comfortable ship and service. They get so close you can almost touch the glaciers. We shut down the engines for a while so we could hear the sounds...More
