Awesome views, amazing...

Awesome views, amazing crew, very helpful finding wildlife, giving information and cleaning up and helping with seasickness issues. Rough seas in September, so probably wouldn’t go again this time of year, but definitely a worthwhile experience.

Most memorable: A pod of Orcas, Stellar sea lions, and the harbor seal nurseries on icebergs below the Holgate and Aialik tidewater glaciers. The captain/guide was extremely knowledgeable and an excellent narrator.

Glaciers were great but animals stole the show!

Even though the weather was rainy and Alaska Bay rough we had a wonderful trip. Saw sea lions, orcas, sea otters, mountain goats, harbor seals, puffins and river otters. Realize we were lucky but captain made it a point to stop and let us have plenty of time to see them all. Both glaciers were also awesome, and again we had plenty of time for photos. Crew was great in dealing with those that had gotten sick. We were warned to take sea sickness medicine. I would highly recommend this company for the cruise.

How big these glaciers are is undescribablely amazing. Seen quite a few whales to. Waters get rough for a while so if your not used to that definitely take something for motion sickness. Lots of people were heaving for a little while.

The Captain was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the area. He was a very good captain as He was very cautious when we came near kayakers as to not make a big wake. The staff was amazing and helpful. Very generous lunch.

The glaciers were breathtaking, and the vistas were stunning. Watching humpback whales feed was a really cool experience. And I got the chance not only to hold a chunk of glacial ice, but also to drink margarita with glacial ice! It was 7.5 hours well spent. Definitely a trip for the ages!

Watching whales and porpoise swim by the boat is beyond what words can express. And the Captain's knowledge of the area and wildlife was fantastic. The boat was extremely clean and his staff could not be more courteous or friendly.

We had a great time on this tour. The weather was perfect the day we went, we had at least three different whale encounters, and the glaciers were great to see! It was super fun that the crew on the boat was just as excited to see the wildlife as we were. Definitely follow the advice and dress in layers. Even on a week where in Seward it was 75º, it was frigid and windy near the glaciers and I wished I had an even heavier jacket than the one I brought. The captain (Gary I think) was super knowledgeable about the area, very communicative and educational about the wildlife.

Highly recommended. The crew was nice and professional. I saw so much wildlife in one day. probably more than 10 orcas and humpback whales. We also saw otters, sea lions, sea birds etc. Getting up close to the glacier was also a surreal experience.
