Full description

Board one of the largest catamarans in the region and spend a day filled with wildlife, glaciers, mountains, and more. See whales and glaciers in Resurrection Bay and learn the history of the region from a National park Ranger.

The cruise begins by searching for wildlife in the protected waters of Resurrection Bay. Whales, sea otters, and puffins are often sighted within minutes of leaving the harbor. A National Park Ranger will provide information on the area's wildlife, glaciers, fjords, and history. Stop at one tidewater glacier that has frequent calving events, where giant chunks of glacial ice break off and crash into the water. A full bar is available for those wanting to enjoy an Alaskan Amber or glacier margarita. Savor a deli-style lunch on board while you cruise.

    This was a wonderful experience. Crew was outstanding, very attentive and did all possible to ensure we saw as much wildlife and glaciers as possible. Would recommend the 6hr - especially if it is not raining as you will enjoy being outside on one of the decks. Even though I think our tour/boat was sold out, it did not seem overly crowded - I highly recommend.

    A lot of this is weather dependent. 5+ for the glacier part of the trip. Got to see calving which is spectacular. Heavy clouds/fog on the way out probably limited the wildlife we could see. Did see a humpback in the way back which was pretty cool. Captain and crew top notch. This is a great family outing. Our girls 8 & 6 liked it.

    Holy cow! This was one of the BEST days of my life! This trip exceeded any expectations I had for my Kenai Fjords experience. I know I was lucky, but I was able to see orcas, humpbacks, fin whales, sea otters, jellyfish, bald eagles, and porpoises that swam alongside the boat all against the most incredible natural beauty. The tour guide was PHENOMENAL, providing so much information and was respectful of the animals and the environment. I could not recommend this enough- keep in mind it is windy and that if you do choose to sit inside most of the time, you won’t get the best views. I sat outside the entire time with my zoom lens and it was just amazing.
