For over 25 years, Major Marine Tours has been showing our guests Alaska’s towering glaciers, abundant marine wildlife, and stunning scenery on our world-class Kenai Fjords National Park cruises. Surrounded by steep mountain walls and glacier-carved fjords, Kenai Fjords National Park provides the perfect habitat for Steller sea lions, sea otters, Dall’s porpoises, mountain goats, bald eagles, puffins, and a vast number of seabirds. Our Kenai Fjords National Park cruises offer some of the best whale watching opportunities in Alaska, with chances of seeing humpback whales, orca whales, gray whales, fin whales, and minke whales. We offer seven cruise options departing from the beautiful harbor town of Seward, from half-day family friendly cruises on large, stable catamarans to full-day small vessel adventure cruises. Our Kenai Fjords Wildlife Cruise was voted most popular attraction in Alaska by TripAdvisor in 2018! Departing from Seward, Alaska
With nine cruise options to choose from, we are sure to have the cruise for you. Our cruises range in duration from 3.5 hours to 8.5 hours and depart from both Whittier and Seward, Alaska. Please see our 2018 Cruise Comparison Chart for a quick way to compare our cruise options.
The 6 Hour Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise visits one active tidewater glacier and the 7.5 Hour Cruise visits two active tidewater glaciers. Though both cruises follow the same approximate route, the additional cruising time on the 7.5 Hour Cruise allows the captains time to seek out the best wildlife-viewing opportunities in the area and spend more time watching whales and other wildlife that are seen along the way.
Guests are urged to dress in layers, including a warm rain-proof coat, hat, gloves, and comfortable, rubber-soled shoes. Guests are welcome to stay in our heated cabins, but warm clothes are recommended for guests who would like to spend time outside on the viewing decks.
Our cruises go out rain or shine. We only cancel cruises due to unsafe sea conditions, in which case we will notify you as soon as possible. Major Marine Tours reserves the right to cancel or re-route our cruises based on weather or other conditions.
