What to Expect
The 5-hour Kenai Fjords wildlife cruise departs daily at 12pm and returns at 5pm and travels approximately 55 miles round-trip along the rugged coastline of Resurrection Bay.

If you've chosen the buffet, fifteen minutes into the cruise we will begin serving the Alaska salmon and prime rib meal that is freshly prepared on board. While you enjoy our cruising restaurant service you'll be able to sit at your reserved seat inside the heated cabin and not miss out on any of the beautiful scenery.

Several alpine glaciers nestled high in the mountains surrounding Resurrection Bay can be seen along the route if the weather cooperates. You'll also have the chance to see the impressive Bear Glacier, a piedmont glacier and the largest glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park.

As you approach the end of Resurrection Bay you will visit Cape Resurrection, home to Steller sea lions and thousands of nesting seabirds. The captain will stop the boat close to the sea lion colonies and seabird rookeries, providing excellent photo opportunities. Along the route you'll have the chance to see abundant wildlife such as whales, sea otters, Dall’s porpoises, eagles, mountain goats and many types of seabirds.

A National Park Ranger will provide a detailed narrative on the history, ecology, geology and wildlife in the area.

Glaciers and orcas, and otters, oh my!

We had planned on the shorter ride, but we checked in early and there was space on the longer 5-1/2 hour ride so we paid the extra and went because it was a sunny day. The skipper steered the boat near shores and into coves...More

Glaciers and Wildlife - saw it all!

The 6-hour cruise was long, but we were really glad we chose this tour. Personally, I prefer the katamaran style of Major Marine boats which helps make the ride smoother. We saw two bald eagles as we left the harbor, and continued seeing wildlife throughout...More
