What You Can Expect

Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise from Seward

Keep an Eye out for Whales

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.


Sample Lunch Menu:
  • Chicken Caesar salad wrap
  • Baby carrots
  • Granola bar
  • Freshly baked cookie

The ship's captain gave us the tour of a lifetime. Genuinely interested in getting patrons up close to seeing the best of Alaska's wildlife. He provided a treasure trove of knowledge about the environment. This is a must see venue for anyone that comes to Alaska.

Fabulous weather made this tour even better! Our captain and crew were very knowledgeable about wildlife...we saw orcas, sea lions, sea otters, puffins, humpbacks, and glacier calving. It is chilly so bring hats, gloves, and layers as we had the bow of the boat to ourselves with most passengers sitting inside! Beautiful to see Alaska off land as we were not cruisers! Definitely would recommend.

It was good for the amount of time we had. The captain was very knowledgable. You provided a lunch and charged for the drink? You did offer a glass of water from the ships potable water supply. I did not partake.

The captain shared a lot of interesting knowledge about marine ecology and was skillful at setting us up for wildlife viewing. Crew were great, too. Luckily, whales breached and slapped the water with their fins the glacier calved a bit--all the things you want to see on such a trip.

This was a fabulous tour with ample views of truly extraordinary scenery and wildlife. You are immersed in the natural beauty of the Kenai Fjords during most of the time on this cruise. I can't imagine a better way to enjoy this park. Expect to see sea otters, Stellar sea lions, puffins, mew gulls, and humpback whales

Just plain awesome! I think we really got lucky that day given we saw whales, orcas, eagles and everything there was to see! The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. We highly recommend this for families and a great day.
