We had an excellent tour of the fjords, glaciers, and also saw many different marine life. Michael ( I think his name was ) put every effort into making sure we saw everything that was available to see, even went out of his way to see things that other boats told him about. the service was very good and the people on the ship were friendly and helpful as well. we would recommend this excursion to every one!

Viator Very Misleading
Amy_W

Really disappointed with Viator. I had a 10% discount “not valid” and tried to talk to a rep that was not helpful. The promo code should have worked. Then on the website said three glaciers and was only one. Also said breakfast and lunch. No, only lunch. I would never use this company again.

Everything was like in the brochures and well worth the time and $ spent. We saw all the creatures & creations that were listed, w the exception of the Dall’s sheep. Captain and crew were very knowledgable, and listening to the captain was like having the NatGeo station on! Loved every minute of it!

This cruise was fantastic! Our boat captain was so good at spotting wildlife and making sure everyone got to see it. He was very knowledgeable about all the animals we saw as well as the glacier. We got to see calving at the glacier, which was amazing! All of the crew was very attentive, regularly checking that everyone was feeling ok. I recommend using something for motion sickness if it is an issue for you. This cruise will amaze you!!

Captain Mark and the crew were informative and fabulous. We saw bald eagles, puffins, sea lions, a humpback whale and several orcas. The sites were amazing and the glaciers breathtaking. Definitely worth it. We are going again with our children soon.

This was so much fun! While we did not see whales breaching from the water, we did see them surface and flap their tails. We saw Dall Porpoise, Orcas, Stellar Sea Lions, Otters, Puffins, Bald Eagles, Starfish, waterfalls, calving glaciers, Seals, and so many other birds that I cannot remember their names. We were served a sandwich, chips, snack and beverage on the boat, which was nice and fresh tasting. There was plenty of comfortable seating and the boat was not crowded at all. There was a nature guide aboard who told us about all of the wildlife we were seeing. The crew was friendly and seemed excited to be in their job. It was a great experience and I am ready to go again!
