Highlights
    What to Expect
    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.

    I believe there are a number of cruises offered on different boats every day. You can walk from the train depot to the marina where the cruise boats are. All very easy. Seward is a smallish city and we were able to literally... More

    We have always gone at 8:00. Can’t imagine there could be any difference at the Aialik glacier. I also don’t think there would be much difference in sea wildlife sightings as there might be with timing of land wildlife... More
