    What to Expect
    Your half-day orca whale–watching cruise leaves midday from the Seward Harbor 360 Hotel Dock, and docks back here in the late afternoon. Snacks and beverages are available for purchase onboard.

    Keep your eyes peeled as you journey into Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park. Rather than following a set route, your experienced captain takes you to places where orcas have recently been sighted, making every day a unique cruising experience.

    Along the way, learn from your captain and naturalist crew members about the orcas’ prominent dorsal fins and fascinating social behavior. A hydrophone on board allows you to listen to the calls of the orca whales underwater.

    Great cruise on the Orca boat. The Captain and crew were very knowledgable and helpful. We got to see Orcas, Hump Back Whales and Sea Otters. We had a great time and recomend Major Marine Tours.

    I believe so. I took a cruise in 7/5 and we saw Orcas and I reviewed my photos from last year and I have photos of Orcas in August. There is a difference in that after 6/10 there is no longer a cruise dedicated to just... More
