What a fantastic day cruising the Kenai Fjords. Not only did we see the spectacular Aialik glacier, but we saw Orca whales, Humpback whales, Tufted and Horned Puffins, Bald Eagles, Sea otters, harbor seals, Steller sea lions and more! As a photography buff it really gave me an opportunity to use my Canon 90D camera and rented 100-400 mm zoom lens! The photos are awesome, but do not capture the beauty of being there in person.

This tour was well worth the price in my opinion. The experience can be very dependent on the time of year and the weather. The weather was great when we left Seward but the staff did warn us that the weather can change quickly and their staff is well trained to deal with sea sickness. I am not prone to motion sickness but it has been hit or miss for me on previous Caribbean cruises so I pre-medicated just in case. On our way to the National Park, the captain spotted a research vessel and was able to find a pod of killer whales which was amazing. We were able to see several fairly close up and was one of the highlights of the day. She did her best to keep the boat as stable as possible but the seas got a little choppy in the open water. As we made our way to the glaciers, the clouds moved in and we started to get some rain. If the boat is able to make it over to Kenai Fjords, the glaciers are amazing up close. The staff may even have some signs for photos (holiday card anyone?). We were able to see several glaciers up close and some amazing scenery in Resurrection Bay. Some rougher weather moved in on our way back to Seward so we weren't able to spend much time outside. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful throughout the cruise. If you are prone to motion sickness, talk to the staff on shore before getting on the boat because it could be pretty miserable if you spend 4-6 hours feeling nauseous. None of our group experienced this but there were a few people on board that were having issues with this. Overall a great way to see Kenai Fjords National Park!

Orcas, humpback whales, Dall's porpoises, stellar sea lions, sea otters, glaciers, and the list goes on...the trip was a dream. Even though we experienced a rough sea on that day (May 30th 2021), our captain was perfect managing it. Can't recommend Kenai Fjords Tours enough! Even our 15 month-old son enjoyed the tour! You guys do an excellent job! Thank you!

Rough weather and rough ride. We were given options, and since I was there I decided to go and experience what I could of Alaska. Despite the less than optimal weather, the trip was still amazing and there was more than enough natural beauty to make this trip worth while!

Experiencing Seward and Resurrection Bay by boat was awesome. The Captain was very knowledgeable of the area and stopped for all wildlife he saw, no matter how small or far away they were. There was a storm the day we went but the Captain made the most of the situation by modifying the trip to ensure our safety. The staff were very friendly and went above and beyond to help guests be comfortable onboard.
