Overview

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.

Justin and Clint were great. Made the best of a rainy cool day. Saw whales and a lot of other marine life. Even waterfalls. Glacier tour was great too. Just a cool rainy day.

This was an amazing adventure! We saw so much wildlife and I could have stayed and watched the glaciers for hours. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. Very well done, and I would highly recommend this tour!

Our major Marine tour of the Kenai fjords, glaciers and marine life was outstanding. We saw a large number of animals and birds as well as close views of the glaciers and fjords. The 7.5 hour trip provided enough time to see two glaciers calving,...More

This is a great tour with birds, (more than just puffins) seals and whales. Though, I was a little disappointed witnessing only the backs and tails of the whales, but, it's not like a movie where the director can say...."cue the whales!" You have to...More
