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 took the cruise on Mother's Day, taking advantage of the Mother's Day special. The scenery is absolutely beautiful before you even see any wildlife. We saw several bald eagles, three mountain goats and then tons of birds. There was a little downtime with not much wildlife, but then the captain explained that there were Killer Whales up ahead.

We choose the 5 hour wildlife cruise because it was advertised as being a good choice for those prone to seasickness since it was in the protected waters of the bay. I don't usually have any problems with seasickness but my hubby has in the past so he took Dramamine prior to starting. The first 2 hours were fine.... then... More

Dad came to Alaska to visit for a few days, knew this was a must do. So glad we did it, we got to see whales, sea lions, tons of birds and a couple of otters. Great trip!

My husband and son took me on the cruise for Mother's Day. What a great day. We saw orcas, a humpback, eagles, puffin, harbor seals, otters, stellar sea lions, and tons of gulls. The narration by the Park Ranger was very informative. We opted to include the buffet but quite honestly didn't have high expectations for the food. The salmon... More

My wife and I have taken a number of cruises from Seward with Major Marine. I have also spent a considerable amount of time in my own boat fishing this same area. On Mother's Day, my wife and I went on the 5 hour cruise. The weather was nice, sunny and clear, the water water moderately calm, with waves off... More

The Atmosphere was not the greatest. Tables with uncomfortable chairs. Babies crying all over the place. The Official announcing seemed to forget what she was saying. The memory Picture with their Boat Buoy looked cheap with missing letters. I enjoyed the trip it was just a little long for me. It was kind of the same thing over and over... More

We really enjoyed the 6 hour Kenai Fjords tour with Major Marine Tours. The ship was well-maintained, the crew was professional and the food was actually good. The tour left the dock right on time and the captain and ranger pointed out geographical features and animals all along the way. We were able to see otters, puffins, seals, orcas, humpback... More
