At the Seward Small Boat Harbor, step aboard a 95-foot-long (29-meter) non-smoking cruise vessel designed with comfort in mind. During your 8.5-hour cruise, you'll cover 100 miles (160 km) round-trip. You don't have to worry about food during this trip — enjoy an onboard lunch (see a sample menu below) and a buffet dinner at a lodge on Fox Island.
Learn about the evolving geology of the Harding Icefield, which dates back to the ice age and forms the steep fjords. Keep your camera out for the wildlife that you’re likely to see at peak season, which may include minke whales, orcas, and humpbacks, as well as porpoises, sea otters, and harbor seals.
Admire the jagged icy cliffs along the Kenai Peninsula, fjords and calving glaciers — from inside the warm and spacious cabin equipped with seating and large picture windows, or from the multi-level observation decks. Enjoy a fast cruising speed, with extra time to photograph the amazing scenery.
Catch sight of migratory seabirds that nest in the Kenai Fjords, as well as other native flora and fauna. Watch puffins dive underwater and view the rookeries of more than 18 other bird species in the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge.
Your 8.5-hour voyage ends back at the Seward port.
For lunch enjoy a healthy Chicken Caesar Wrap, chips, granola bar, and freshly baked chocolate chip cookie.
For Dinner head to our private lodge, where you’ll settle in for a mouthwatering buffet of freshly grilled wild Alaska salmon and prime rib, along with vegetables, salad and bread rolls. Finish it off with a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie as you head back to Seward.
