Choose from several morning departure times and embark on a 6-hour Kenai Fjords National Park cruise from Seward. 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.

The cruise was wonderful. Saw 3 pods of orcas, harbor seals, puffins, sea otters, and, of course, a glacier calving. Very enjoyable.
An amazing adventure

We took the 6 hour tour for our 20 year wedding anniversary. It was magnificent. The tour was well organized, the crew was very friendly and attentive. The scenery were simply breathtaking! We truly enjoyed our experience and highly recommend it.

This trip was amazing. We saw for the first time in nature, killer whales & sea lions. The glacier was awe inspiring. The entire crew was very kind & helpful. This is a must do in Seward.

Too crowded on boat. Did not see much wildlife. The chicken wrap for lunch was more of lettuce wrap and no drink or water was provided. Would not recommend.
Exceptional in every way

Great animal sightings, close to the glacier to see all the ice in the water, fished ice from the glacier out of the water for everyone to see and hold. Everything we could have asked for.
Good wildlife viewing effort, one star for food

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.

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!!!

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!!
