Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise from Seward

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    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.
    For lunch enjoy a healthy Chicken Caesar Wrap, chips, granola bar, and freshly baked chocolate chip cookie.

    This was a great cruise. We boarded at 3pm. We saw whales, otters, puffins, and, of course, glaciers. We also saw an octopus (unfortunately, he was being consumed by the otter-- who would have thought that an octopus could be a meal for an otter)....More

    The cruise was a little pricey but it was worth it. Our whole family had a wonderful time on the 6 hour cruise. We saw beautiful mountains rising from the sea, up-and-close view of the glaciers. We even saw glacier ice crushing into the sea....More

    Excellent tour. Captain Mark was a tremendous narrator. We saw every creature as advertised. Highly recommend the 6 hour cruise.

    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
