What to Expect What to Expect

From an observation deck aboard your comfortable cruise, watch the Alaskan wilderness awaken! Starting your six-hour cruise at either 8am or 11:30am – your choice – board your vessel from Seward and prepare to take in some of Alaska’s most breathtaking surroundings from the water. You’ll be amazed by the vast amount of Alaskan wildlife to be seen – including a variety of whales, sea lions and birdlife.
Each 95-foot-long (29-meter) non-smoking cruise vessel has been customized for maximum comfort, including warm and spacious inside seating with large picture windows and multi-level viewing decks. All vessels are Coast Guard licensed for 150 passengers, equipped with restrooms and accessible to guests with limited mobility. You’ll enjoy a fast cruising speed, with extra time to photograph and view wildlife and glaciers.
During your in-depth tour of Kenai Fjords National Park, listen to onboard commentary from your informative captain and learn about the abundant marine life you’re likely to view at peak season. Keep an eye out for harbor seals, sea otters and porpoises as well as humpback, minke and orca whales that inhabit the park. Passing jagged icy cliffs along the Kenai Peninsula, view dramatic fjords and calving glaciers – both alpine and tidewater – amid 700 square miles (1,130 square km) of the Harding Icefield, which blankets the Kenai Mountains in glacier ice.
Enjoy an onboard lunch (see sample menu below) and learn about the ever-changing geology of the Harding Icefield, one of four major ice caps in the United States, which dates back to the ice age and forms the steep fjords. As you cruise approximately 100 miles (160 km) round-trip from Seward, admire the stunning landscape teeming with marine life amid plankton-rich waters – important feeding grounds for the migrating whales.
Your captain will point out migratory seabirds that nest in the Kenai Fjords, as well as other native flora and fauna. Be amused by puffins as they dive underwater and view the rookeries of more than 18 other bird species in the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge, including black-legged kittiwakes and common murres. Witnessing the vast, untouched beauty of Alaska’s coastal waters, you’ll understand why this wildlife and glacier cruise is Alaska’s most popular!

Itinerary

For lunch enjoy a healthy Chicken Caesar Wrap, chips, granola bar, and freshly baked chocolate chip cookie.

Awesome tour!!! We had the entire day in Seward as we were doing back to back Alaskan cruises and had the day to ourselves. We opted for the Kenai Fjords tours and, even in spite of the occasional raindrops could not have more thrilled with the experience. It was a picture postcard adventure if there ever was one. Highly Recommended!!!

Wow! This was the most amazing experience ever! I have been on the Holland America cruise across Glacier Bay, but the Kenai Fjords tour from Seward outdid everything!! Simply brilliant! Captain Mike and staff Emma and team were amazing! Highly recommended if one is considering to get up and close to the glaciers!!

Incredibly awesome experience to have such an up close experience with the glaciers. The whale watching as we were approaching the area was such a great added bonus to experience.
Highly recommended!!

Trip was wonderful. Waters were a little rough however this was to be expected with the weather during the trip. Staff was fantastic and highly accommodating and attentive to those that had difficulties due to the high waves.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We planned the tour the day before we were to board a cruise ship down the inside straight to Vancouver. Out of all the tours we participated in with the cruise, the Kenai Fjords Cruise was by far the BEST!!! We were able to see Orcas, Humpbacks, Otters, Puffins, Stellar Seals, and the beautiful coast line. Thank you Captain and ship mates for a wonderful tour, great service and yummy food. We would go again in a heartbeat if we're ever up in Seward again.

The ship's captain gave us the tour of a lifetime. Genuinely interested in getting patrons up close to seeing the best of Alaska's wildlife. He provided a treasure trove of knowledge about the environment. This is a must see venue for anyone that comes to Alaska.

Fabulous weather made this tour even better! Our captain and crew were very knowledgeable about wildlife...we saw orcas, sea lions, sea otters, puffins, humpbacks, and glacier calving. It is chilly so bring hats, gloves, and layers as we had the bow of the boat to ourselves with most passengers sitting inside! Beautiful to see Alaska off land as we were not cruisers! Definitely would recommend.

It was good for the amount of time we had. The captain was very knowledgable. You provided a lunch and charged for the drink? You did offer a glass of water from the ships potable water supply. I did not partake.
