Major Marine Tours offers two thrilling full day cruises into the Kenai Fjords National Park, where wildlife is abundant and tidewater glaciers are massive. Covering 120 miles, you can choose between a 6 hour or 7.5 hour tour, and all trips are hosted by a National Park Ranger. At the glaciers you'll often witness calving - a process by which glaciers shed giant blocks of ancient ice. This area is also home to a wide variety of animals including whales, sea lions, seals and sea otters, as well as an abundance of birds including puffins and eagles. You can enhance your experience with our Alaska salmon and prime rib buffet, freshly prepared on board the vessel. All guests are guaranteed reserved seating inside our heated cabins.

Gray Whale Watching

It was excellent! Captain was fantastic with great narratives of what we were seeing. We saw otters, seals, porpoise, a humpback whale, and a variety of birds.

We went for a cruise in March. We were blessed with great weather. There were about 30 people in the cruise. The scenery was fabulous, with island, mountains, glaciers, ... The crew was very attentive and the commentary very informative, but not too wordy, just right! We saw bald eagles, porpoises, humpback whales, otters, sea lions, ...

Great ocean view tour and lots of wild life surprise out there. The sea life museums bundle is definitely a great bonus.

Joshua and Kirsten were the best. The scenery is absolutely incredible. We've been on whale watching tours before, but never with scenery like this! Plus we got to see some whales, eagles, dolphins, etc. We loved it. 2 or 3 thumbs up!!!

Boat took you to all of the beautiful spots within the Bay. You need to understand that you may not see a whale, just depends on the day!.

This was the second time we have gone out with Major Marine Tours. Both times the staff was very nice. The weather gods were nice to us both times. We all had a great time and will be coming back this summer with friends and family.

The boat tour was amazing! The boat crew was very accommodating to our needs. They made sure we were comfortable and took some great photos of us. The trip was tailored to the weather and where they have been seeing whales so it is personalized to get the best experience! The only thing I would suggest is to eat lunch... More

The sights and scenery of Resurrection Bay were made even better by the passion the Captain of our vessel had for his job. You could hear the fascination in his voice as we trailed one humpback whale only to find a small pod of three humpbacks. He also tried very hard, with some success, to spot wildlife in the bay....

Major Marine tours did a great job on our February trip. This was their first trip of the season and they warned us in advance that we would probably not see many whales and to dress warmly. Even with that, the trip was great. The crew was helpful and courteous. We learned lots of information about the bay formation and... More
