Step aboard a 95-foot-long (29-meter) non-smoking cruise vessel designed with comfort in mind. Capture views of 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 and view wildlife and glaciers. Learn about the evolving geology of the Harding Icefield, which dates back to the ice age and forms the steep fjords. As you journey approx. 100 miles (160 km) round-trip from Seward, marvel at the breathtaking landscape teeming with marine life amid plankton-rich waters, which attract migrating whales.

Hear from your seasoned captain about the wildlife you’re likely to see at peak season, which may include humpback, minke and orca whales, as well as harbor seals, sea otters and porpoises.

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, including black-legged kittiwakes and common murres.

Enjoy an onboard lunch (see sample menu below) before the captain sets voyage back to Seward port.


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

Captain seemed to really try to find wildlfe to view and rotating the boat to give everyone viewing and photograph opportunities. Captain gets a 5 star, galley a one star. Bring your own food, you are allowed to do so and I would recomend doing that.

Very good trip and the sea is calm.It was rainy but not too bad. We saw the natural beauty of the sea with whales,otters,dolphins and birds.The sound of the breaking of the ice from the glacier is fantastic. We enjoyed the trip and we recommend this trip.

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!!

We took the cruise to Kenai Fjords from Seward, the boat was clean and comfortable, the weather was perfect still chilly though. We were lucky to see almost all the wild life that we hoped to see, the whales, killing whales, sea lions and birds. We came to the glacier pretty close right in front of it..
The crews were fantastic and friendly, the overall trip was pleasant and enjoyable. Thanks to the Captain and crews.
